In-home senior careBaywood Home Care is a company that provides private in-home senior care so that elderly people can continue living at home, rather than moving to assisted living, or living in a nursing home. Our mission is to enable people to live HOW and WHERE they want to live.  We view our services as providing freedom, and removing constraints. We believe that Baywood offers the best private home care for the elderly in Minnesota.

Baywood was founded in 2000 by Dorothy Muffett, who left a V.P. position in a consumer products company to begin a second career more focused on people.  From the beginning, Dorothy has said that our objectives as a company are to have Happy Clients, Happy Clients’ Families, and Happy Employees,  Fulfilling these objectives—each and every day—is our only focus.

Baywood offers flexible at home care for seniors: hourly care, 24-hour “live-in” care, and overnight care.  The company and its caregivers have extensive experience in Alzheimer’s care/dementia care/memory care.

The company has offices in Minneapolis, MN and Sherburn, MN.
