Visit to Chateau Girardeau

by Sam Plaster, State Culture Change Coordinator

In February 2014, I visited Chateau Girardeau in Cape Girardeau.  Chateau Girardeau is a not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community that was founded by the Presbyterian Church.  The 40-acre campus includes 37 individual Independent Living homes, 99 Independent Living apartments, a 55-resident Assisted Living Home, and a 75-resident Skilled Nursing Home.  The skilled nursing home includes a 16-resident short term rehabilitation neighborhood and 20-resident dementia neighborhood…to read more and view photos, click here:  Chateau Girardeau.
