A Retirement Lifestyle Opportunity Like No Other
Creating a multi-acre senior living community in the very heart of a highly desirable area like Lincolnwood is a rare opportunity. While only minutes from businesses and shopping, cultural opportunities, houses of worship and medical and professional offices, the landscaped 13-acre, pedestrian-friendly campus of The Carrington at Lincolnwood offers a respite and oasis unto itself. Without question, this is the time and the place for an ideal senior lifestyle that is nearby, and nearly perfect.
We believe positive living helps residents remain as self-reliant as possible, even when health challenges arise. The Carrington’s three distinct lifestyle options of Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care were intentionally planned to ease life transitions. All on the same campus, all amongst trusted staff and familiar surroundings, all available should the need for a higher level of service or care ever be necessary.
The complete range of amenities, services, programs and care – nothing short of extraordinary – are available with a simple monthly payment, so you stay in control of your finances, with no entrance fees or buy-ins.

The Carrington at Lincolnwood
Carolyn Driscoll’s love of working with senior adults dates back to her special relationship with her own grandmother. After working in teaching, banking, and a time at home with her own children, Carolyn realized that working with senior adults was her calling. Her job as a Residency Counselor at The Carrington gives her an opportunity to build relationships with future residents and their families. She spends a lot of time listening and understanding people’s needs, desires and preferences, and then helps them discover how life at The Carrington will meet those needs.
Carolyn has been most impressed by the fact that so many of the community’s incoming residents are from the immediate area, and the large percentage of adult children who are involved in their parents’ decision to move to The Carrington. She was born in Chicago, and is a lifelong area resident.
Suzy Povrzenic’s entire career seems to have been spent in preparation to become The Carrington’s Community Outreach Coordinator. She became a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) at the age of 17. As an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse), she has worked in skilled nursing and home health environments. She has been an Advocate Care Nurse (a position she created to advocate for patients), a nurse liaison, and worked in skilled healthcare outreach marketing. She was involved – on site – when The Carrington first opened in April, which is when she fell in love with the people and the building itself. In July, when the opportunity arose to join the Carrington team, Suzy jumped at the chance.
Suzy spends about half her time working outside The Carrington, building relationships and speaking with professionals who serve the senior community, as well as community groups such as churches, women’s groups and chambers of commerce. She spends the balance of her time at The Carrington, developing relationships internally. “We’re creating something really special here,” says Suzy. “I love having the opportunity to introduce people to the next generation of senior living at The Carrington. It’s completely different than other communities and sets a high bar to which competitors aspire.”
Suzy was born and raised in the Chicago area, the first member of her family born in the U.S. She spent three years attending school in Croatia (where she still has family) and is fluent in four languages. When she’s not working, Suzy enjoys travel, bar-be-que, discovering new restaurants, spending time with her son, three sisters, extended family and friends.
