Customer Reviews

We did tour Carrington as well. Staff was very warm & professional. The facility is beautiful! Still waiting to see if they have availability for short term respite care, but the facility meets all the needs of our parents. Would suggest touring the Carrington as an option.

Very new facility. Beautiful decor--lots of natural light, spacious and clean. Large floor plans for assisted living with 1 and 2 bedroom units. Seem to be only 1/3 full. Within my desired budget and located fairly close to the expressway. Staff friendly

Very nice. Expansive. Has salt water pool. very modern without being cold.

Memory Care Environment - Pleasure to Visit

Beautiful, airy spaces. Love visiting my mom and have the option of taking her to events in the independent and assisted living communities. Her room is always orderly and she looks goods. She loves the musical concerts, warmth of staff and food choices.

No place is perfect, and this is a startup, which requires one to be more flexible and understanding. That said, I'm having a whole lot of fun with very interesting & wonderful new friends! The surroundings are modern/contemporary, spaces are bright, large, and welcoming. There's almost too much to do - an art/craft room, sewing room (with two machines), external outings (transportation provided), charity projects, lectures, music events, a "happy hour" one day of the week, a really nice dining room, bar, bistro, pool, wellness center, .... and opportunities to tour & sample are always there. I was diagnosed with Parkinsons in early 2017, and there's no way I could continue living in the country in a large house by myself, and the Carrington fits my needs and lifestyle perfectly.

Our move in experience was almost nonexistent!
No one gave an orientation.
I felt the staff was too busy selling or in meetings.
The care members and food staff seem to change frequently.
I feel they have great potential but lack the staff to make it happen

The Carrington, new facility on the North side.

The Carrington is a brand new facility that offers Assisted Living (@ 88 apartments), Memory Care (@ 25 rooms) and Independent Living (@ 250 apartments). They opened in May 2018 and are slowly, but surely, getting the units filled in. My in-laws are in the Assisted Living which only has about 1/4 of the apartments filled at this time, but new residents move in frequently. The staff is great and they work with the surrounding community for medical services, activities and more. The medical attention to residents is very personalized and they keep up with required services. Each resident is given an electronic fob for emergency as well as access to their apartment. The food is good, although the chef is working on satisfying all needs and still working on the menu. The apartments are gorgeous with wide spaces and room to comfortably move around. Each room has their own thermostat. The best is that the showers are zero-entry....no lip on wall to step over. The other great service is that the town of Lincolnwood has worked with the Carrington to provide emergency services (ambulance) on premises 24/7 to take people to the hospital as needed the second something goes wrong. No waiting for emergency services! I highly recommend the Carrington. It is competitively priced with other facilities in Chicago and are very reasonable for the services they provide.

The Carrington at Lincolnwood - an urban and contemporary retirement community.

I'm in the independent living section, which is much better than expected! I've told others that the staff at the Carrington take their "nice" pills every day. The executive director is very available for any resident and does her best to make live fun, safe, and productive.

There are also assisted living and memory care areas that I am less familiar with.

What I didn't like about other retirement communities is that they tended to be dark, old fashioned, with narrow hallways, floral prints on the walls and overstuffed furniture in the common areas. The Carrington was described in their brochures as "urban" - and it is. Wide well-lit hallways, nice contemporary wall art and furniture (that doesn't sink down to the floor when you sit on it!) and lots of community space - living room areas on all floors, a bar, lunch room and open and bright dining area - libraries (at least two!), medical office with nurse on duty.

The food (everybody wants to know!) is very good, and many times excellent (filet mignon anyone?). There's a fish, veggie, and meat dish, salad, soup, and desert for all lunches and dinners. OTOH, maybe too good...

The apartments are mostly "right sized" - enough room if you downsized enough, but a bit short on storage space - unless you pay an extra amount for an extra 4ft cube of storage. There are studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments, some with balconies.

There is a "wellness center" including a very well equipped gym, swimming pool, and an experienced trainer. There are two art/craft rooms, one equipped with two brand new (lower end) sewing machines, two cutting tables with cutting mats; the other is equipped with tools and other materials that depend on current projects.

Another goodie that's coming some time in the following months - the town is locating an emergency response unit right in the Carrington buillding!

As with any brand new facility/community, there are some growing pains. The ones I've observed the most revolve around food service, but they are obviously working on that and I expect things to iron out soon. It's not for lack of trying (both wait staff and management); it seems to me to be a matter of process and training.

The Perfect Place

I totally agree with the first review. The representative took her time to get to know my mom and the family. She was very warm and personable. The models shown were beautiful and perfect for my mother. We are signing.

[Removed] is an excellent sales rep - very personable. She spent 15 minutes finding out about my mother's history and interests before even talking about the Carrington. She spent a lot of time with us to make sure all our questions were answered.
Although The Carrington is still under construction and we were only able to see 2 model apartments, we were very impressed with the facility. My mother is almost ready to sign!
