The Carrington at Lincolnwood recently received coverage in the Chicago Tribune in a piece titled, “The Bluhn Family’s Foray into Senior Living.”
Here is that article in its entirety…
With a strong commitment to their community and a growing demand needing to be addressed, the Bluhm family of Chicago has co-developed the newly-opened The Carrington at Lincolnwood. The highly acclaimed rental senior living community offers independent living, assisted living and memory care with no expensive upfront buy-in fees. Our affordable monthly rates start at $2,800.
“It’s no secret, given the boom of the aging population, that there’s a tremendous need for senior housing in general, and in the Lincolnwood area specifically. Residents have little in the way of quality choices if they wish to stay within their neighborhood,” said Andrew Bluhm. “There’s hasn’t been anything built here in many years, and the existing inventory is outdated. The Carrington is the antitheses of that, having been carefully created with all the latest bells and whistles. It’s modern, bright, airy, and alive with energy.”
Located in the bustling heart of Lincolnwood situated on a lush 13-acre campus, Bluhm said that The Carrington community is a gem in a park-like setting that is easily accessible to the amenities of the city. “It’s not often you find a parcel of this size and quality in such a unique location, providing a setting and experience unlike anything in the market,” he said. Among many amenities, The Carrington offers fine dining services from culinary experts, transportation for personal needs, and hands-on housekeeping to make residents’ lives easier. Other distinctive characteristics of The Carrington include its indoor aquatic and fitness center, multiple libraries, hair salon and spa, gardens, a dog-friendly environment, and walking paths. Large and engaging courtyard areas on the campus provide a beautiful and safe outdoor environment for the residents. Should someone need more support, a natural transition can occur to the best-in-class assisted living and memory care residences. Our memory care programming is anchored by our Heartfelt Connection® program focusing on care, respect, dignity and optimal quality of life by highly-trained and caring staff with person-centered activities.
The Bluhm family is well known throughout the area for their successful business enterprises and even more importantly, for their dedication to philanthropic pursuits. Most recently, they donated $25 million to their eponymous Northwestern Medicine Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, to further advance study and treatment of cardiovascular disease. “We are very dedicated to caring for the people in our community. The development of The Carrington reflects this, as it’s important to us that our seniors have access to the best possible care, as well as the best possible lifestyle,” said Bluhm.
The Bluhm family collaborated with South Bay Partners (SBP) from Dallas on The Carrington. “It was important for us to align ourselves with the best partners in the industry,” said Bluhm. “SBP has an impeccable reputation, with more than 25 years of experience in retirement living.” SBP has been responsible for the ground-up development of 70 retirement communities in 13 states, and strategic redevelopment of 11 additional properties.
Life Care Services, an LCS company®, the nation’s leading manager of full-service senior living communities is managing The Carrington. Lif Care Services also oversees several other senior living communities in the area, including The Clare in downtown Chicago. “The Clare is a magnificent property, and we are excited to be able to offer our own wonderful option a little bit further north,” said Bluhm. “The combined expertise and commitment of the partners developing and managing the beautiful new campus, along with all of The Carrington’s amenities, guarantee an unparalleled choice for the seniors in our communities. ”
