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.
At the heart of The Carrington at Lincolnwood lies an intrinsic and uncompromised commitment to you – assurances from Life Care Services®, An LCS® Company.
