Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio (MHCO) is a not-for-profit Christian organization located in Bluffton, Ohio. It was founded in 1955 by area Mennonite churches with a vision of serving God while serving others by providing comfortable housing and compassionate care in a Christian home where the elderly could live a joyous, rich and full life.
This long-standing tradition is still faithfully followed today and is the foundation of this ministry. Bluffton, Pandora, and Lima community Mennonite churches continue to support this goal by providing financial, spiritual, and volunteer resources.
MHCO provides a continuum of care including independent-living duplexes and apartments, assisted-living apartments, rehab and skilled nursing care. This continuum of care allows residents to age in a setting they consider home. Mennonite Home Health and Senior Services, also a part of MHCO, gives compassionate clinical care to those wishing to stay in their home as long as possible.
MHCO provides its services on three campuses in Bluffton as well as coordinating Home Health, mobile meals, and senior transportation within our surrounding community.
The Mennonite Memorial Home campus is located on a beautiful 16-acre setting in Bluffton. The buildings, grounds, sidewalks and recreational areas all lend a feeling of quiet confidence and serenity. This campus has independent-living duplexes, assisted-living apartments, and a 92-bed skilled nursing facility, with a special emphasis on creating environments for individuals with Alzheimer's or related Dementia.
