Bridging the Gap Between Senior Living and Anchorage Nursing Homes

At Baxter Senior Living, we offer assisted living plus. Our unique program is designed to cater to residents who require a higher level of care than provided in traditional assisted living.

Assisted living plus residents receive round-the-clock personal care and monitoring with all the services and amenities provided in assisted living and a specialized care plan tailored to their specific needs. This level of comprehensive care and independence sets us apart from other nursing homes in Anchorage, AK.

Understanding the Difference: Assisted Living vs. Anchorage Nursing Homes

Assisted living and nursing homes are two distinct types of senior care, although they’re often confused with one another. Both aim to support seniors in their daily lives, but they cater to different levels of need and independence.

Assisted living communities like Baxter Senior Living provide an ideal solution for seniors who need some assistance with daily activities such as meal preparation, medication management, and personal care but can still enjoy independence with proper support. They also benefit from a range of services, including housekeeping, transportation, and licensed nursing support.

On the other hand, nursing homes are designed for individuals who require a higher level of medical care and support. They typically cater to seniors with serious health conditions, chronic illnesses, or those recovering from surgery or hospitalization. Residents in nursing homes usually require access to round-the-clock medical supervision and assistance with all aspects of daily living.

Although assisted living and nursing homes both play crucial roles in senior care, they are not interchangeable. However, Baxter Senior Living bridges this gap with our assisted living plus program. This unique service provides enhanced personal care and monitoring for residents who need more support than traditional assisted living can offer but do not require the comprehensive medical care provided in a nursing home.

Baxter Senior Living is a versatile choice for Alaska senior care.

The Cost: Assisted Living Plus vs. Nursing Homes in Anchorage, AK

When it comes to providing quality care for your loved ones, we understand that cost is a significant factor. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey projections, the cost of nursing home care can reach up to $26,534 per month. This can be a considerable financial burden for many families.

At Baxter Senior Living, we offer an alternative with our assisted living plus program. Prices start at just $9,300 per month, making us a cost-effective option for families seeking comprehensive care for their loved ones. Despite the lower price point, we don’t compromise on the quality of care and services provided.

Financial Assistance for Senior Living

It’s important to note that Medicare/Medicaid typically covers costs for temporary stays in nursing homes that are medically necessary. While these programs may not cover long-term care in a senior living community, they can alleviate some financial burdens associated with short-term recovery and rehabilitation stays. Seniors and their families are encouraged to contact us for more information about assistance services to pay for assisted living and memory care.
