Our Community

Changing retirement, as you know it.

The Chateau Girardeau is changing retirement. No more hours of daytime television, shuffleboard or six o’clock bedtime. It’s your life and you should be living it your way.

Located on 40 beautiful acres in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, our residences and amenities offer an exciting and active lifestyle to all of our residents. We want to help everyone live the life they want, so we offer residents their choice of independent living house and apartments (The Chateau Estates and Suites), assisted living facilities and skilled nursing care including short-term rehabilitation and Memory Support Services. Residents of The Chateau are never far from Cape’s world-class medical centers, golf clubs, downtown shopping, or the Mississippi riverfront.

Originally developed by the First Presbyterian Church of Cape Girardeau, The Chateau is owned by Cape Retirement Community, Inc., a local not-for-profit, non-denominational corporation. It is governed by a board of directors comprised of a diverse array of local executives and community leaders, as well as Chateau Girardeau residents.

What is the value of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?

Chateau Girardeau is the premier Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in the Cape Girardeau area. We offer three levels of care (independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing) within one beautiful campus. It brings a great piece of mind to our residents knowing they have full access to the continuum of high quality care if they should need it in the future.
