Welcome to The Bristal at Massapequa…
For me, it is rewarding to serve at a community with an atmosphere so genuinely friendly and welcoming. The Bristal Assisted Living at Massapequa, here in Nassau County, is not only inviting in design and décor, it is filled with warm and down-to-earth people who truly love being here — staff and residents, alike. The services are exceptional, the relationships are meaningful, and the activities are fun and fulfilling. I should know; I’ve been in this business for 23 years. In terms of sustaining a commitment to excellence in retirement living for seniors, The Bristal succeeds in ways that so few assisted living communities have. We hear it from what our residents have to say, and it’s a sentiment that’s echoed in the cards and letters and emails their families send us. From independent living to Alzheimer’s care, there is authentic depth and purpose in everything we do. Hands down, The Bristal does a world-class job of ensuring positive senior living experiences, making it both a privilege and a pleasure for me to be working here. The caliber of senior care and memory care services that families find here is superb.

During my dad’s stay at The Bristal, Tracey always showed a caring attitude toward him and always kept us abreast of his progress…Tracey was very supportive to both him and us and she made an overall effort to make certain that my dad’s needs were being met with all support staff ranging from aids, to kitchen staff…She is a true professional in her chosen field and I think you are very fortunate to have her on staff.
