May 7, 2020

 

As of today, May 7, 2020, we have had no active cases of COVID-19 in The Carrington for eleven days now. We continue to follow the guidance of the CDC, Illinois Department of Public Health and our Medical Director Dr. Patel.

Families (up to two visitors only) continue to schedule social visits held on our covered patio around the side of our Assisted Living entrance while wearing masks and maintaining adequate social distancing. Please note that visitors are still not permitted to enter the community per IDPH guidance. The email address to schedule an appointment is ALMCquestions@thecarrington.com.

We are making plans for additional seating in the courtyards and around the exterior of the community which will allow for small group socializing while wearing masks and maintaining appropriate social distance. For Independent Living residents, we will accommodate one visitor until the number of active cases reported in Cook County declines and/or we receive guidance from IDPH to remove visitor restrictions.

We are keeping residents informed of the latest information via our inhouse Touchtown TV platform. Broadcasts are being shown multiple times to ensure all residents are aware of current happenings at The Carrington and in Cook County.

Per recent IDPH guidance, our Daily Updates will include preventative measures and precautions taken by the community. All of our staff continue to wear masks. They receive temperature screenings at the beginning and end of each shift. Our residents have been provided masks, continue to practice social distancing, and only gather in very small groups (at a distance of course). We continue to restrict visitation inside the community to essential visitors who must complete questionnaires based on CDC guidance and submit to temperature screenings. Sanitizer stations are available throughout the community and each department continues their daily disinfecting routines. Residents who leave the community for medically necessary appointments or even a short walk around continue to sign out/in and receive temperature screenings.

The Carrington at Lincolnwood is committed to protecting the health of all our residents. Please contact us via phone at 847-941-0793 or via email at info@thecarrington.com for additional information.
