My mother moved into the Bristal in East Northport in August 2015. She was having difficulty getting around her large home and had given up driving the year before. She moved into a lovely one
bedroom apartment that she decorated with her furniture and all her treasures from home. She loves her apartment, it is cozy, homey, and a perfect size for her. It is still large enough for friends and family to visit. The amenities that come with living at the Bristal have made her life so much easier. The girls that clean her apartment and do her laundry do a wonderful job and mom has grown very fond of them. Having to give up driving was one of the hardest adjustments mom has had to make. The Bristal bus and wonderful driver has given mom a sense of independence once again. She does her banking, food shopping, trips to Macy’s, Chico’a as well as lunch outings. Mom has an outgoing personality who loves to interact with others. She has become friends with many of the other residents and enjoys the company of all the staff members. The staff are all friendly and caring individuals. Her days are filled with activities and social interaction. Although mom had to leave a home she loved and many dear friends ( she still sees them ) she has made a new and wonderful life living at the Bristal. We do not worry about her living alone anymore .
