Independent Living at Mennonite Memorial Home

Mennonite Memorial Home offers spacious villas for those who are looking for independent living without the hassles of home ownership. Home repairs, interior and exterior maintenance, lawn care, snow removal, sewer, water, taxes, and insurance are all included in duplex amenities. Villa residents also have access to the lap pool, hot tub, and fitness room in the Maple Crest main building.

Equally important to residents and their families is the peace of mind that comes from knowing help is available if needed. Our villas all feature a 24-hour emergency response system. Residents also have priority for admission to our assisted living or skilled nursing if needed. An important advantage for Mennonite Memorial Home independent living villa residents is that ten days of temporary skilled nursing care is included per year.

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:
