My 94 year-old father has been a resident in the Grasslands’ neighborhood of The Citadel for almost two years. I know that he is safe and well taken care of by the healthcare attendants, on site social worker and the rest of the staff who I can confirm truly care not only about his physical, but also his emotional and social wellbeing.
This was borne out not only in the way The Citadel has managed its response to the Covid pandemic and Alberta Health restrictions, but also when a fire destroyed a neighbouring building which necessitated the evacuation of all Citadel residents. Staff worked tirelessly to move the residents to a safe location, ensure medical care and liaise with AHS to find over 130 beds in “the system” to temporarily place residents.
My father has said to me on more than one occasion, “At this stage of life, I couldn’t have it any better.”
