The Citadel Senior Living was clean and very elegant and had very nice furnishings. The staff was very friendly and everybody we walked by said hello. The only thing we didn't like about it was the size of the rooms, which were really small, especially for my mom who was moving from a 4-bedroom home. The dining area lo...Read more The Citadel Senior Living reviews
The Citadel was a very nice place. I noticed that there was no smell. I had a very nice tour although I had trouble getting into the smaller rooms. Everything was nice. The dining room was very nice, and the food was good. We had a very friendly welcome. I saw people in different rooms enjoying different things like ca...Read more The Citadel Senior Living reviews
The Citadel Senior Living was old looking. The thing that we didn't like about it was the residents had to go out of their space to go to another building to eat and for activities. It wouldn't have been appropriate for my mother-in-law. The person who assisted me was new there and wasn't able to answer a lot of our qu...Read more The Citadel Senior Living reviews

They have a separate facility that's independent living. They serve three meals a day plus all the snacks you could want. The staff makes sure ...Read more The Citadel Senior Living reviews
I really enjoyed the tour at The Citadel. The facilities were not very elaborate, but they were very clean. The units were pretty big and the laundry facilities on every floor was a good deal. You didn't have to go very far to use the laundry. The cafeteria wasn't super posh, but it was nice. Their other amenities like...Read more The Citadel Senior Living reviews
According to the 2018 Genworth’s Cost of Care study, Mesa, part of the Phoenix metropolitan area, has an average monthly assisted living cost of $3,850, which is slightly less than the national average of $4,000 and on par with the Arizona state average of $3,800.
Mesa’s average cost of assisted living is midrange compared to other Arizona cities and similar to the costs in the Sierra Vista area and Prescott. Flagstaff ($5,098) and Tucson ($4,044) are the costliest cities in the state, while Lake Havusa ($3,500) and Prescott ($3,775) are the least expensive places for assisted living in Arizona.
Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
When evaluating the cost of senior care in the Grand Canyon State, the type of care is the primary factor. Compared to assisted living, nursing home care averages about $2,690 more a month, and the cost of a home health aide or homemaker service is about $900 more than assisted living.
When comparing home care services to assisted living, keep in mind that home health care costs don’t include household expenses. For a more accurate comparison, consider rent or mortgage payments and other monthly costs such as utilities and upkeep.
Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart
Medicaid is co-administered by the federal government and each state. This government-sponsored health care program provides low-cost or free medical assistance to qualified people in Mesa and the rest of Arizona. The program pays for health services for seniors, such as home health, personal care and services provided in a nursing home.
Seniors on supplemental security income, also known as SSI, are also eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid services are accessible to seniors in Mesa with incomes under $12,492 a year. This is lower than the Medicaid maximum income in many states due to Arizona’s unique long-term care strategy, which encourages seniors to age in place at home.
Based on a combination of income and total assets, some seniors may have to pay into the Medicaid program. For assistance with enrollment or other Medicaid questions, contact the Arizona Medicaid office at (800) 523-0231 or (602) 417-4000.
Arizona 1115 Demonstration Project Waiver
There are 11 states that use a 1115 Demonstration Project Waiver to distribute and administer Medicaid programs. Arizona’s Medicaid model (AHCCCS or ACCESS) uses home- and community-based services to assist seniors who need help but wish to remain at home. The program also supports assisted living services for eligible participants. Mesa has no PACE program. Instead, the state offers similar programs as part of its robust AHCCCS benefits.
Arizona Long-Term Care Services
Arizona Long-Term Care Services provides financial assistance to Mesa seniors who opt for long-term care at home or in adult foster care, assisted living or a nursing home. This program also helps pay for assisted living. Services include home nursing, meal delivery and some medical equipment, and there are no enrollment caps. Applicants who meet disability benefit requirements are also eligible for these services. For more information on ALTCS, call (877) 236-4752.
Elderlife Bridge Loans
Elderlife helps Mesa seniors transitioning to senior living, including assisted living. This commercial company offers bridge loans to seniors and family members who need help with a gap in available funding to pay for care. Loan approval is based on credit worthiness, but multiple family members are allowed to act as cosigners. Typically loan providers require that a plan for long-term funding be in place prior to loan approval. For more information or to apply, call (888) 228-4500.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-term care insurance plans can cover the cost of assisted living facilities, although most providers require that policies begin before a condition that requires long-term care arises. If seniors are still living at home, it may not be too late to purchase long-term care insurance. Fidelity has an online calculator that helps families determine the cost of a policy. For more information, call (866) 489-0963
