    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Jackson

    Jackson is a small town located 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee and about 20 miles west of Lake Michigan. Approximately 12 percent of the 6,753 people living there are age 65 and older. To accommodate those seniors who need help with activities of daily living, 14 communities are in Jackson or the surrounding communities. Regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, these assisted living facilities provide a number of services, including housing, medication administration, meals and housekeeping.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Jackson

    • Seniors on a budget may have difficulty making ends meet due to the increased cost of living in Jackson. Based on the national average of 100, this town's cost of living index is 110, which is also higher than the state average of 97.8.
    • Crime is rated on a scale from 1 to 100 with 1 being the safest. Jackson's violent crime rate is 16.9, which is less than the national average of 22.7. The property crime rate is 22.1, more than 13 points lower than the national average of 35.4. This may make the town feel safer for some seniors who enjoy running errands on their own.
    • Jackson endures harsh winters, which might be uncomfortable for seniors who are sensitive to cold weather. The average January low temperature is near 10 degrees, and summer highs climb to the low 80s in July.
    • The Jackson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Froedtert Jackson Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Jackson has an array of community resources for seniors, including one senior center and the Aging and Disability Resource Center, which helps seniors locate available services.
