Your Loved Ones Would Be Cared For and Thrive Here

I like the friendliness and feeling of family here. The reason I ended up choosing Charter is I felt confident my loved one would be taken care of based on interactions I've had with the staff, including the director. In my conversations with the director, I felt we were aligned and had some of the same things going on in our lives. She made me feel assured and understood. I like the care they're providing, the way my loved one looks and is dressed. She looks very sophisticated.. If you didn't already know she has Alzheimer's, you'd never know it looking at her. Activities have been great. I've seen dancing and an Olympic themed activity. They post pictures on Facebook, and it's great to see the residents involved in positive and stimulating activities.

Very happy with our choice

We chose the facility because they were willing to work with me on the rent every month until his VA benefits kicked in and even adjusted their rate. It also provided everything that he needed.They were very communicative with his care and what he needed, so I do believe he was getting great care here. I was able to text them whenever with questions and I was always able to get a hold of somebody, even the director. Even after his passing they still reach out to check in on me. I am really happy that we chose Charter Senior Living and I would highly recommend them.

A caring facility

It is a nice facility. The staff is helpful. You need to stay in constant contact with the administration. It is hard to get information in a timely manner. Room sizes are nice.Mostly private rooms, very clean. Staff is very attentive. They have started Facetiming with the families. Management just changed.

Short term Respite care

My husband and I were both extremely impressed with Citadel for our aunt who has late stage altzeimers”. She was there for respite care (approx. 20 days) while we took a much needed vacation. The staff were very warm and friendly, the other patients appeared clean and happy. The smell was very pleasant, which is the most important to me-cleanliness. She actually seemed comfortable with her room, each time we were there my aunt seemed very well adjusted to the structure. I know that when the time comes for her to have a permanent stay she will be placed there. I am one of those people that follow my gut and my gut Loves Citadel.

Do Not Send Your Loved Ones to Citidel

Citidel used to be as wonderful an experience as a senior with mental and physical challenges could expect. My dad has been there a couple of years now. When we came, there was a manager named [name removed] who was excellent and very caring. Since then, management has changed and the staff is significantly reduced. There are seniors walking in and out of random rooms, falling because there is limited help to ensure their safety and my dad has even worsened due to the staff not ensuring that he remembers to drink his water regularly. The workers there have quite a bit to maintain. It is really a challenge to manage a group of seniors who are used to managing their own affairs, but now are forced to rely on the help of others to do simple things like remember to eat or drink. There is added stress on the staff and the resident when there isn't enough help to assist in keeping the seniors safe. My dad is in hospice care now. There have been times when I have come and discovered him in his bed with the lights off, and has not been up all day or has at least eaten because of lack of employees. He has fallen and no one can provide an explanation as to why, when he is supposed to have 24 hour care, except on Sundays. This place has gone from a 4.5 star to a 1.5 star. Don't send your loved ones here.

Don't Stop Here.....keep looking!

My firsthand experience spans almost 5 years. When my mom was initially placed here it was Arden Courts, which was a very good owner, within a two year period, overnight, the facility was no longer Arden Courts and became Citadel Estates of Hazel Crest. There was no announcement that the business had changed hands, or any information provided about the new owners. There have been four different executive directors in less than five years. At any juncture, there was no communication or introduction of a new executive director. On Monday the old director, on Tuesday, a new director. Since [date removed] the place under the management of Citadel is turning into a real dump. Cleanliness has dropped an alarming rate. The employee turnover rate is 150%, don't bother trying to remember names. And, the facility is understaffed. I must say that the caregivers most of the time were exceptional. My experience concerns management and the nursing staff, which was always unapproachable and unresponsive. You pay more than what you get. The quality of the meals diminished to tolerable. Overall, while my mother was a resident, I spent a lot of time with her to make sure she was not neglected or abused. I would not recommend this facility for anyone. Don't believe 24 hour nursing service that is a lie, lie, lie. One may consider why I did not remove her...because, I have no faith in any of these facilities and was unable to care for her due to my own chronic health issues. I did care for her for 5 years before placement.
