The Bristal Assisted Living Named “Caring Star of 2015” for Service Excellence in Assisted Living
Positive Feedback in Online Reviews Puts The Bristal at East Northport, Lynbrook, Massapequa, North Hills, North Woodmere, Sayville, Westbury and Woodcliff Lake Among the Best Communities in the Nation
Caring.com has named The Bristal at East Northport, Lynbrook, Massapequa, North Hills, North Woodmere, Sayville, Westbury and Woodcliff Lake as a “Caring Star” of 2015, as part of an annual nationwide program honoring service excellence based on consumer ratings and reviews posted on Caring.com. Online reviews of the communities from families, seniors, and others concerned about assisted living and Alzheimer’s care delivered the highest possible score of a 5-star consumer rating to The Bristal, while the communities also met other qualifying criteria for the honor.
Families are increasingly looking to online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging loved ones. In multiple research studies conducted by Caring.com, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they used the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and two-thirds took to the Web after noticing signs of memory loss in a loved one. The Caring Stars award helps them narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the communities most-acclaimed by families like theirs.
Of the 31,000 assisted living communities nationwide, only 805 earned the Caring Stars award this year. Out of the 35 winners in New York State, 7 of those awards went to The Bristal Assisted Living! The Bristal at Woodcliff Lake, currently our only community in New Jersey, was one of the 34 awards given out in the state.
“Congratulations to The Bristal Assisted Living for achieving this award after earning high praise from residents and their families,” said Caring.com CEO Andy Cohen. “This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference The Bristal is making in serving older adults, and we join with the local community in celebrating their accomplishment.”

Congratulations to the entire team at The Bristal at Lynbrook on this honor.
