+A -a


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.

Mennonite Home Health & Senior Services Celebrates 20 Years

Twenty years ago health care choices for seniors who were in need of care were
somewhat limited to either a hospital stay or going to a nursing home.
Kathy Rode, a nurse at the Mennonite Memorial Home in Bluffton, saw that many
of them could stay at home with just a little assistance. "We wanted to
offer a third option in the way of home health services, where nurses would
make visits in people's homes to help them recoup after surgeries or if they
needed further assistance." recalls Rode, who is the founding Director of
Mennonite Home Health & Senior Services. "We decided that this would
be an excellent service for the Mennonite Home to offer the elders in this
community and so began the journey of the last 20 years."

The nurses began offering in-home services such as;
skilled nursing care, medicine supervision, post-surgical care, physical
assessments, therapy services and home evaluations. Mennonite Home Health
& Senior Services also had nursing assistants who went to client's homes to
give support in the form of personal care, bathing and other needs. Over
the last 20 years Mennonite Home Health & Senior Services has served
hundreds of clients in 4 counties and has seen the size of their staff
double. "We have made wonderful friends, shared many memories and
enjoyed giving excellent care," says Rode. "Many children don't live in
the area and they rely on us to provide that weekly interaction and
communication with other health professionals about the needs of their loved
ones. It is a very rewarding job." Rode has worked for MHCO for 34
years and has enjoyed her long career in serving elders.
