When your loved one has reached a point where they can no longer live independently without a little help, it’s tough deciding which housing option is best for them.
In most cases, family members of aging adults opt for in-home care because it provides the most comfortable solution for the senior.
If you’re wondering whether or not in-home senior care is the best option for your loved one, continue reading the information below. We’ll, address the most common concerns about in-home care, assisted living, and more.
What Is In-Home Care?
When most people think about in-home care, they picture a nurse that comes into their private residence to help take care of them. While an in-home nurse is an option that some families choose, it’s not the same in-home care that we provide.
Baxter Senior living offers the ultimate care for our residents by giving them the best of both worlds. The seniors that reside in our community have the flexibility of living independently, while also having the help and assistance of our caretakers.
We are an assisted living facility that provides in-home care services in a comfortable, social environment.

Is a Senior Living Facility Right for Your Loved One?
As you can see from the information above, we have everything your family member would need to live comfortably. Not only do we cater to senior citizens who are able to live independently, but we also provide support for those who cannot.
If you are experiencing caretaker burnout and can no longer properly support your family member, we can help. Transitioning someone you love from their home into a senior community is a tough choice.
However, it’s best to make the right decision for the overall well-being of your family member. Our home care services are just the right mix between independent living and caretaking. When there’s no one to look after your loved one properly, you can rely on us.
Another huge perk of allowing your family member to live in our senior community is a social environment. As some adults grow older, they start to lack social interaction, which can often lead to depression.
However, at Baxter Senior Living they’ll make plenty of new friends and have lots of activities to enjoy it in their new home.
