COVID-19 News Update

 

July 8, 2020

Residents, Families and Partners,

At The Citadel Senior Living, we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date and informed, especially during the turbulent times caused by COVID-19.

As I am sure many of you are aware, Arizona is experiencing a significant increase in the reported positive COVID cases.  We’re writing to inform you that we have just learned that one of our employees has been diagnosed with COVID-19.  This employee works exclusively in our isolated memory care unit and has closely followed required infection control measures, including wearing a mask and frequent hand sanitation. The employee has not been present in our community for the last 10 days while going through the testing process.

To date, we have seen no other signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in any of our residents or other employees. Read more

Information Regarding Visitation

Dear Residents, Family and Friends:

On March 14, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services advised of a nationwide restriction on visitation for certain health facilities, due to the coronavirus. Though these restrictions were drafted for skilled nursing facilities, they address risks similar to those posed to other senior living communities. CMS has directed that only health care workers or end-of life visitors be allowed to visit the community during this time. Until further notice, we will follow this direction, and will not permit non-essential visitors. We continue to encourage virtual visitation by phone, FaceTime, Skype, etc. It is important for you to remain connected with your loved one, and we will be happy to work with you to accomplish this in the absence of an in-person visit.
