I have a loved one who sadly has been placed in the citadel three times over the past six months. The first stay during "recovery" went well only because he compared the citadel to where he had been placed prior which was the promise. He was so neglected at the promise he attempted suicide. Death was better than remaining there. So in comparison, the citadel was pretty good. Second stay, obviously recovery had not happened for him, they staff somehow overdosed him on his antibiotic to the point he was poisensd. No one noticed, did anyone ever look, ever check. I don't know. I walked in to a frightening scene and instantly knew he was in trouble, and I'm no nurse. In response to this error they blamed the overdose on him, tested him for street drugs assuming someone was sneaking illegal drugs into him, took him off his pain meds.to suffer. Their tests came back negative and proved it was their doing, no one else's. Now he's back. Same deal. Different week. Already you can not get a call through because no one can be bothered to answer the phone. I hope this time is the last time. I have so much distaste for this half added organization I couldn't say anything nice about the facilitu if my life depended on it. Thank goodness it doesn't. *UPDATE. the brilliance if the powers that be for some unexplained reason took it upon themselves to cancel my friends antibiotic. He went 4 days without the antibiotic he was supposed to receive. This after six months if being on the wrong antibiotic that did no good in fighting his infection. Six months and nobody checked if the meds. we're doing the job. Holy Cow. Tonight I have called three times and let the phone ring and ring, no one could be bothered to answer. I have never seen such a thing it blows my mind how they get away with this stuff. * UPDATE. The friend of mine in the citadel had gone 4 days without a diaper change, I had to do it for him. As I said 3 weeks ago his Incistion from his back surgery was infected and left to turn gangrene as was his ulcer on his heel no one noticed but me By the time I saw it (while changing his rancid disper)it was the size of the bottom of a jelly jar. For 3 weeks I have been telling him he needed to be back.in the hospital, finally a few days ago he was sent back. The surgeon removed a huge amount of gangrene from his low back and heel. Because of the lack of treatment. Lack of cleanliness. And lack of giving a hoot I don't believe he will ever walk again He is only 52. The hypocractic oath states do no harm. He has been harmed. More than harmed. I'm glad he lived through it. He will never be place there again. He was nauseas from his medication and given anti nausa pills. He asked for a second one one day, hours after the first and wad told no. He threw up all over his bed and himself. His bed was not cleaned up untill 4 pm. He was made to sit in a wheel chair waiting for hours. Prior to that I had come to visit and Hollis bed wad gross. I asked when last it was changed. He had been there over a week and said it had never been changed so far When.his bed finally was changed, there was so much blood and drainage fluid on the sheet they couldn't pull the sheets apart. This has been the most awful thing I have ever seen someone I know go through

I am honor to be part the staff at The Citadel Senior Living Community for 12.5 years. Some of our staff have been working at The Citadel since the doors first opened. The staff of the Citadel goes above and beyond to help each other and our residents in whatever the task may be.We are one big family caring for each other. The best part of the Citadel is we are a continuing care campus, we means we offer independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing . Independence when you want it, assistance when you need it.

Care my mother received was adequate. Service personnel were pleasant, caring, and responsive. Management would not refund payment for unutilized services after my mother passed away. Make certain that you are aware of this policy prior to placing any loved one in this facility.

I have been to numerous assisted living communities with my family members recently. I can say that the Citadel was the most welcoming and friendly experience we've had from the moment we walked in we were treated like family.The community was very well kept the staff was great and it was very reasonably priced.The woman who gave us our tour went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable we had no pressure to sign up no rushing through to get to the next tour. She sat with us for almost 2 hours answering all of our questions and concerns from medical to the upcoming weeks menu.I highly recommend the Citadel to anyone who is looking for not just an assisted living for a family member but a place that makes you feel like one .

The Citadel has a great staff that is friendly and attentive. You can tell that they care deeply about all the residents. They have a variety of activities for residents so they can find various activities to participate in. There is even an in-house country store that the residents run themselves, a library where they can check out books, a billiards room, several other t.v. and sitting rooms to socialize and/or for special occasions or when more family comes to town to visit all at once or for residents to socialize together. Another great thing at the Citadel is the private dining room residents can reserve for special occasions and private parties. The Citadel has a warm, inviting, and comfortable atmosphere. It doesn't feel like a sterile hospital environment at all. It feels like Grandmama's classy home.
