A PLACE FOR MOM HONORS The Carrington at Lincolnwood WITH 2021 BEST OF SENIOR LIVING AWARD AND CELEBRATES A YEAR OF TRIUMPH OVER ADVERSITY
Top Reviews from Residents and Families Showcase Outstanding Care Provided by The Carrington at Lincolnwood to Keep Seniors Feeling Safe, Healthy and Happy
Lincolnwood, IL, Jan. 25, 2021– The Carrington at Lincolnwood is proud to announce that it has been honored as a SeniorAdvisor.com Best of Senior Living 2021 award winner by A Place for Mom, Inc. (APFM), the largest senior living referral service in North America. The best of senior living honor represents the best of the best of in-home care, assisted living, and other senior living providers, determined by the reviews of seniors and their families on SeniorAdvisor.com, the nation’s largest ratings and reviews site for senior care and services. This exclusive designation honors only the top three percent of senior care providers across the United States and Canada.
This year has been tough for so many and The Carrington has shown its resilience in the face of this challenge. Many of the top reviews shared what kept residents feeling safe, less isolated, and stimulated both mentally and physically. From socially distant events, religious services, and holiday celebrations, to meal deliveries with customizations per request still available, to enhancing their cleaning protocols and installing AirPHX, a ventilation system to ensure purified air throughout the community and residences, The Carrington provided the utmost care.
“Communication is critical,” says Tom Whitaker, Executive Director of The Carrington at Lincolnwood. “We provide ongoing printed updates delivered to resident apartments in the evenings, as well as email updates sent to families. Plus, they all have my email address and personal cell phone number.”
Senior Living Industry is a Critical Category in Caring for Our Aging Population
Reflected in many of the top reviews, the Senior Living industry has remained a critical industry throughout the pandemic. A Place for Mom surveyed families that moved into a senior living community over the past six months with 86% of caregivers indicating that COVID did not influence their decision to move their loved one into a community during the pandemic, mainly as a result of seniors needing care beyond what could be provided at home. More so, almost 9 in 10 families surveyed with a loved one in Senior Living said they were satisfied/very satisfied with the care their loved one was receiving this past year, as caregiver fatigue became an unfortunate reality with 77% of caregivers reporting that they have been overwhelmed by the demands of caring for a senior since the pandemic began.
“During a year that challenged all of us, and particularly frontline healthcare workers, senior living communities demonstrated resilience going above and beyond to keep residents safe, healthy, and happy,” said Sue Johansen, Senior Vice President, Community Network, at A Place for Mom. “Of the nearly 45,000 senior living care providers in North America currently listed on SeniorAdvisor.com and hundreds of thousands of reviews, only the top 3% were recognized with this prestigious award, simply by providing the highest level of care that residents and their families deserve.”
