I Visited This Facility

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 questions, and that was a drawback for us. We visited the dining area, and it looked fine. The people looked pretty happy there. We asked some of the residents some questions, and I didn't hear any complaints. They didn't say anything bad. We went to the activity area, but we didn't see anything.

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 cards and so on. The staff was very good, and the community itself was roomy and very pleasant.

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 looked like a very elegant restaurant and it was very nice. They have a little dog park area if you have a dog. They also have turtles and a rabbit. They were very client-oriented. The living area for the individual was small, and it was high-priced. The person who assisted me was fantastic.
