Our History

Tiffany Care Centers was started on December 3, 1976 by David and Wava Duncan, but the origins of the business dates back to 1956 when David’s parents, Howard and Ruth Duncan, opened Duncan Nursing Home in Mound City, MO. Grandma infront of Duncan Nursing HomeMr. & Mrs. Duncan saw a need to care for the elderly in their community and converted their home into a nursing facility that provided 24-hour care for 22 residents.   In May of 1969, David Duncan purchased the home and operated the home for two years until an opportunity arose to sell the home to the Bethesda Foundation who was willing to build a new 58 bed facility for the community. Duncan Nursing Home became Tiffany Heights.

David continued to work for Bethesda until 1976 when he offered to purchase both Tiffany Heights and King City Manor from the Bethesda Foundation. At that point, Tiffany Care Centers was started with 2 facilities and 80 employees, with the foundation of providing quality care by people who care. In 1993 Tiffany Care Centers saw a need and decided to expand to provide in-home services to clients throughout Missouri, while continuing to grow it’s nursing facilities throughout Missouri. In 2007 Tiffany Care Centers began an in-house therapy department to provide quality therapy and rehabilitation services to our residents and the local communities. Therapy services are available at all six nursing homes for inpatient services. Outpatient services are currently available at all six nursing homes.
