- Jackson receives 7 inches more rain than the national average but has approximately the same number of sunny days. The summer highs reach the 80s and winter lows hit the 20s, so it's a good idea to ask memory care staff what provisions are taken to keep residents comfortable during extreme temperatures.
- Jackson's air quality is 72, much worse than the U.S. average of 58, based on the number of hazardous air pollutants, as determined by the EPA in the National Air Toxics Assessment.
