Why The Baldwin House:
As our time winds down, we all seek comfort in simple pleasures – companionship, everyday routines, the taste of good food, the warmth of sunlight on our faces. We become less interested in the rewards of achieving and accumulating, and more interested in the rewards of simply being. Yet while we may...MORE INFO

WELCOME TO THE BALDWIN HOUSE
We welcome residents in the greater Mobile area to our community to experience senior assisted living at its best. Residents enjoy entertainment from live performances, the security of our friendly staff, the warmth of our tight-knit community atmosphere, and the opportunity to maintain their activity and independence.
Residents look forward to a full calendar of events each month that includes performances by local musicians, social hours, spiritual services.
WHY CHOOSE BALDWIN HOUSE
We are a smaller, locally owned and operated residence doing business since 2002. Our residents' satisfaction is our number one priority. Independence and dignity are the cornerstones upon which we are built and our residents are given choices whenever possible. As a smaller community, we try to cultivate an environment with more socialization and friendship, an increased sense of safety and more interaction with our staff. Our residents have a need for both privacy and community, for flexible daily rhythms and patterns and for the possibility of forming caring relationships with other residents and with our staff. We strive to provide this. (Be sure to ask about our very low staff turnover as it certainly contributes to stability with our residents!) What we try NOT to be is a building with a controlled and supervised institutional existence with a medically designed answer to sometimes unfixable problems. Our goal is to make life worth living for residents who are sometimes weak and frail and can’t fend for themselves while living alone.
At the Baldwin House we recognize each resident as a unique individual, who wants to retain the sense of autonomy. Each of our residents are able to individualize not only their own apartment but also the services provided on their needs. We offer three tailored level of care packages to suit the services you need at that time instead of paying for services you do not need or are getting.
Implemented in 2017, Our Achieve 360 Program offers residents a complete health plan. Each aspect of the program has been shown to have physical, mental, and/or spiritual benefits which can improve overall wellness and feelings of well-being. As each residents’ progress is tracked, we can see the areas in which they thrive; in turn being able to potentially eliminate pharmaceuticals.
MAKING LIFE MEANINGFUL IN OLD AGE
As our time winds down, we all seek comfort in simple pleasures – companionship, everyday routines, the taste of good food, the warmth of sunlight on our faces. We become less interested in the rewards of achieving and accumulating, and more interested in the rewards of simply being. Yet while we may feel less ambitious, we also become concerned for our legacy. And we have a deep need to identify purposes outside ourselves that make living feel meaningful and worthwhile. This is what we try to offer with our 30 apartment/homes, a community which is a staple in senior care throughout Baldwin County and South Alabama. Each resident not only receives what we believe to be the best daily living care at The Baldwin House, but, more importantly becomes a part of our family.
WE CARE ABOUT THE WHOLE SELF
What Is It
Using oneself as the benchmark makes the program inherently personalized as each resident works toward developing their own interests.
The intellectual achievement of wellness encourages creative, stimulating mental activities to bring richness to your life and those around you.
The social achievement of wellness encourages positive interactions with others to increase awareness with others in your community.
The physical achievement of wellness encourages regular physical activity to maintain a healthy body and improve mood and self-esteem.
The emotional achievement of wellness emphasizes an awareness of acceptance of one's feelings and thoughts while focusing on a positive outlook on life.
The spiritual achievement of wellness involves seeking the meaning and purpose of individual life while developing a deep appreciation for the depth of life and the natural forces that exist in the universe.

Jayne Carter R.N
Having completed nursing school at Mobile Infirmary, I practiced healthcare throughout the Eastern Shore. After raising two incredible daughters, Nina and Erin, I focused on what made me truly happy; senior care. Senior care is an area, I believe, that should be celebrated every day.
Having 30 years of office and healthcare experience, I ventured into activities and marketing for seniors and immediately felt my calling. being new to the Baldwin House family, I can not speak highly enough about the sincerity and appreciation everyone brings to this community.
I completed culinary school as an enlisted member for the United States Coast Guard while also holding a B.S degree in Hospitality Management for the University of West Florida. As the dietary manager of the Baldwin House I work towards creating restaurant quality meals while respecting each individuals taste and dietary needs.
