Getting you home faster is the goal for Citadel Healthcare. We have experts in both the medical and therapeutic disciplines, with the best equipment and technology, to not just get you strong, but CitadelStrong.  When it comes to planning, our team creates a dynamic care plan designed to get you home, not just as soon as possible, but as safely as possible.  We persistently keep you on the move, body and mind, so your emotional well-being is on track with your physical recovery.


Long term stays and dementia care

The staff at Citadel Care Center of Elgin are expertly equipped to treat and manage many chronic health issues that could require a long-term stay in our facility. Coming to terms with an illness can take a psychological as well as physical toll.

We take the time to meet with family members and the prospective resident prior to admission to make them feel at home. We want our residents and their families to understand that once they are admitted, we become a part of their family. Our professional staff members are trained to counsel residents and empower them to maintain optimal psychological well-being as they process through chronic conditions.

Spanish Program

We are committed to personalized, integrated care that factors in the total well-being of every guest and their family members. We now offer a comprehensive Spanish program offering a full spectrum of culturally responsive services.

Our program includes Spanish speaking doctors and staff, menus printed in Spanish with a variety of culturally diverse entertainment tailored to achieve an optimal health outcome – our number one goal.
