My loved one likes the food, it was excellent. It's a great place. This community, met all requirements.

The people were friendly and the nurses were very responsive and knowlegdeable. Everything was clean. It's very inexpensive. I would recommend to other families.... Read more

Run!

Please do not fall for the sales pitch. They will woo you and smile pretty put the marketing team and management will do whatever it takes to get you in the door. You are better off keeping mom and dad at home and paying for a caregiver. It will cost so must less, but more importantly, they will be safer and better taken care off without their hard earned money falling into a never ending money pit. Every department is understaffed, once your family member is in the door, you better hope they can manage on their own- because that is what they will be. Do not trust what they tell you about assisted living or memory care. I have seen how they care or rather DO NOT care for them. They have been in the news before and the Carringto attributed it to a disgruntled employee. In actuality, many employees have complained about how our elderly are being treated. Once they get too verbal, they are terminated, Rare is the quality employee who stays in-spite of understaffing and underpayment

Experience so far

They could improve on the orientation for new residents and the family. If you ask a question, you do not get an immediate answer from the staff, they take their time. I wish they moved at a little bit of a quicker pace. They have an enormous amount of activities provided. The actual food served is good, but they do not communicate about the other options available if your loved one does not want one of the main entrees. The communication and follow through could definitely is something that could use some improvement.

a nice welcoming community

The Carrington at Lincolnwood is a newer facility so right when you walk in it feels like an apartment building you would find downtown. It is open, the staff are very welcoming and it is just very inviting. The residents living there seem very comfortable and agree that it has that homier feel to it. It is a lot of money but compared to other places in the area that offer the same thing but for more, the value here is good. The food we think right now is okay, however we do understand they are managing all the covid stuff and stuffing. They do have activities going on.

The Carrington looked very nice and clean. I saw more staff members here which was important to me. It felt staged though, everywhere we went there were staff coming up to me telling me how much they liked the facility and I did not like that.

Our experience with The Carrington

We chose The Carrington at Lincolnwood because of the openness and it was newer facility as well. I would tell others to make sure to be very specific of your needs before going on. It has not been the perfect fit for my loved one, so I would recommend as long as it fits you are looking for.

The Carrington at Lincolnwood is absolutely beautiful. It is new and clean and they have a ton of amenities provided for residents. Our loved one needed a higher level of care and would not have been able to use those amenities which is why we kept looking.

Great community!

The food is good but sometimes with the service they get the orders wrong and the meals have to be redone. However, our loved ones absolutely love The Carrington, they have high ceilings and nice wide hallways. The apartments have nice big windows that brings in a lot of bright and natural light. Also, every time we go to visit everyone is out of their rooms, mingling and playing games which we really like to see.

They Have Done a Really Good Job at Taking Care of Mom

The service in the dining room has been relatively poor due to not enough staff. The community has done great at the reopening of the community and dining room. They did a great job at keeping the residents and staff safe during COVID. They are occasionally running low on supplies for nursing care.

I think this is a good option, and especially considering they are doing a lifetime rate lock-in presently. the facilities and care seem great, its a larger community but new so there is diversity in the residents. The pool is nice, as are the apartments (including ADA). Only drawback is no staffed coffee shop.

A Good Home Away From Home For Retirees

At first we couldn't visit inside during Covid, so we had outdoor visits, which they later moved indoors to the restaurant area when it got colder The staff was very friendly. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly and cordial. They knew my name and my loved one's name, and I was only there once a month. So I thought that was outstanding. Come to found out later, we received a letter asking for gratuities based on level of care required for your loved one- which probably went to the aides and such. But still, that was a bit of a disappointment. But overall the staff was very good and very helpful. Everyone knew their jobs. They were courteous and tried to work with you. Sometimes I wish they had gotten back to me sooner, especially when trying to schedule visits. So I think communication could be a little better. I just felt that they were understaffed. Meals were okay, and they were brought to the rooms during Covid. Activities were limited, and we were promised once our loved one moved from the independent side to the assisted side that he could be brought over to the independent side to play pool, but I don't think that ever did happened.

The Carrington is a great place

I’ve been here in Independent Living for 2-1/2 years and I’m very happy here. I chose The Carrington because it was close to family and was built for senior living not a conversion from other types of buildings. The staff is fantastic and always there to help. The amenities are great and the apartments are very nice. During the past several months with Covid they have taken great care to protect us and keep us safe. They coordinated with a provider to get us our vaccinations right here. I am very happy and grateful that I found such a caring wonderful place to live. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, fantastic place to live.

We chose The Carington at Lincolnwood because it was a new facility and it was built to be what it was. A lot of what we looked at were converted from hotels and such. The apartment sizes are very good. Being fairly new, it was easy to acclimate and make new friends because everyone was pretty new. I would recommend without reservation.

Great apartments but have had issues

My mother-in-law is in the Independent Living area. Her apartment is great with brand new kitchens and baths. The front desk staff takes good care of her and they have great amenities. The food service has been terrible. They change chefs constantly, no consistency in the food, she gets it delivered hours later or they forget to deliver until she calls and she never spends her full food budget each month. Their communication on COVID has been lacking. We do see how many cases (the staff, memory care and assisted living had quite a few) but no updates on when my MIL will get the vaccine and we're already moving on to Phase 2 in IL. Still I feel she is safe and secure.

Response from The Carrington at Lincolnwood

February 23, 2021

Vanessa, thank you for sharing your comments about The Carrington. We like to hear that your mother-in-law is enjoying the overall experience of being a resident. We have been sharing community updates twice a week that are delivered directly to residents’ apartments and forwarded to families via email. These updates include information about planning and preparation for the vaccine. We also have an app that can be downloaded to smartphones to receive announcements. COVID has certainly presented challenges with regards to service delivery. However, we have been delivering 3 meals a day to all residents since March 2020 and making adjustments to the program based on resident feedback. If you would like to discuss your concerns further, please call Tom Whitaker, Executive Director, at [removed].
