I don’t even know what to say about how great this assisted living facility. Not only does it look like a hotel but most importantly they employ a staff who care for the residents with compassion and professionalism.
It is not just a job to them they put their heart and soul into it. My father spent 18 months there in the memory unit. In addition to cognitive issues he had so many health problems and had to take a ton of medication. They made every day of his life as best as it could be even when he was difficult. They kept him clean and were patient and kind. The workers and management knew when he needed additional medical care and when he was dying they knew exactly when to have Hospice come in, They were more attentive than the Hospice staff tending to his every need. They also played a big role in supporting my mother who had been a caregiver with declining mobility. They took care of her when she visited and were compassionate with me, the only child. My mother entered the Bristal in the regular unit, recently. I can sleep at night knowing she is safe and getting great care when needed. The management/director of the facility is very hands on with knowledge of each resident and is a true professional. She makes sure everything runs smoothly. If you are looking for a facility for a family member or friend there is no better place.
