About the Chateau

Located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Chateau Girardeau is the only accredited, Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) between St. Louis and Memphis to meet the rigorous standards of excellence required for accreditation by the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission in Washington, D.C.

As a bustling port town on the Mississippi River, Cape Girardeau is an attractive retirement destination due to its location, size and distinctive combination of local amenities. The Chateau’s forty acre, park-like setting is adjacent to Cape’s world-class medical centers and mere minutes from top-rated golf clubs, retail shops and Southeast Missouri State University. Our senior living community offers residents their choice of independent living housing (The Chateau Suites and Estates), assisted living facilities (The Terraces) and skilled nursing care (The Gardens).

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 local executives and community leaders with diverse backgrounds, as well as Chateau Girardeau residents.
