The Citadel Senior Living Community allows seniors to maintain their independence with access to assistance and support services when needed. We offer both Assisted and Independent Living.
The Citadel is unique in that independent residents can live together in a community that is geared toward active individuals and easily transition into an environment where caregivers can concentrate on those who need it.
The Citadel offers a pet friendly environment so residents can enjoy the companionship of their long-time furry friends. In addition, both communities offer full service barber and beauty shops to keep residents looking and feeling their best.
With over 30 years of experience, The Citadel Senior Living Community has maintained a great reputation in the community for providing consistent quality care and the best amenities that can be found.

Prior to the Pandemic it is a Nice Place to Live

After moving in things started to go down hill. I'm not sure if this is due to a management change or change of ownership. I believe the community is doing the best they can. They recently hired a new chef for the community. The community also hired more housekeeping staff to assist with the residents. My loved ones recently had a increase in price for rent. The community has a self library. We went to eat several times with my loved ones, and it was very nice. The community doesn't enforce the mask mandate when going into the hallways for residents. The grounds are kept very nicely. My loved ones were able to get on the bottom floor, with a patio, and a doggie door to bring their dog with them. The community did transport the residents to the shopping centers and grocery stores prior to the pandemic.

Good experience

We chose The Citadel because the affordability and the convenience to our house. The apartment sizes here are adequate, a standard 1 bedroom. The best part about the community so far has been the convenience. They do shuttles to doctors appointments within a 10 mile radius on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I would recommend.

Almost a 5 Star

This facility would be a 5 star, IF, it can keep staff. Let me give you the positive. GREAT STAFF, personable, positive. However, they are greatly understaffed and over worked. One person per 100 people. 30-90 mins to answer an alert from patients. Laundry service is great, house keeping good when they can reach each room before starting over again. FOOD - poor, Chicken EVERY SINGLE DAY! I will they say they try to dress the chicken differently, but CHICKEN is still CHICKEN. While the facility is an older building, it is nice. Activities are good, residents appear to be happy.
