Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio


Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio is a Bluffton and Pandora area senior care provider with a commitment to compassionate, innovative care in a faith-based setting. For nearly 60 years, we have been the senior housing and health care provider of choice for area families. MHCO provides independent living, assisted living, long-term care, and short-term rehab at our four area campuses. We also bring compassionate clinical care and support services to area seniors who wish to remain in their homes.

Our non-profit status allows us to dedicate our human and financial resources to a different set of investors: our residents. That means our resources are always returned to our communities. Our bottom line isn't a corporate bottom line. Our mission is our bottom line. It allows us to remain a pioneer in both staff development and care delivery. While we are well-known for our independent and assisted living, we are also highly regarded by area health care professionals for our short-term rehab services. We handle many complex health care needs in our state-of-the art rehab areas that include services such as VitalStim Therapy and a Continuous Passive Motion Machine (CPM).  

We invite you to visit one of our communities to experience the MHCO difference for yourself. Please feel free to stop in at your convenience or call us in Bluffton at 419.358.1015 or in Pandora at 419.384.3218 to set up a personal appointment with one of our team members.

Willow Ridge #13 in Ohio for Resident Family Satisfaction

Willow Ridge of Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio (MHCO) was named number 13 in the State of Ohio according to the recently released results of the 2014 Ohio Department of Aging Resident Nursing Home Family Satisfaction Survey.  Willow Ridge, a faith-based, not-for-profit nursing home community featuring the first Green House Homes in Ohio, scored a 94.6% satisfaction score to achieve this ranking.  The survey, which included results from 610 nursing home communities (out of 960 nursing communities in Ohio) measured the satisfaction of family members of each nursing home resident about his or her perception of the facility's activities, administration, meals and dining, direct care, nursing and other factors that affect his or her family member's life in the facility. Willow Ridge meets the needs and demands of the elders they serve in an environment created from the ground up to foster the same feeling and experience elders get from living in their own home.  Each Green House Home at Willow Ridge is designed for 10 elders with the comfort of private rooms and bathrooms combined with the family-like atmosphere of open common spaces.  This innovative model gives elders four times more contact with staff than a traditional nursing home setting.  To learn more about Willow Ridge, visit or by phone at 419-358-1015, ext. 225.  Full survey results can be viewed at:
