High Tea Luncheon with Sayville and West Babylon

West Babylon hosted a special high tea luncheon this afternoon. The Women’s Club from The Bristal at Sayville visited West Babylon for an afternoon filled with story telling, a beautiful lunch, and of course new friends! Residents in West Babylon are so excited to plan a trip over to Sayville next to explore their side of town.


The Bristal Helping Hands in West Babylon

Every Saturday here in West Babylon, a group of residents get together to make clothes, hats and mittens for children! These talented residents are part of The Bristal Helping Hands volunteer group. As pieces are completed we donate them to a few of the local hospitals. We are also participating in The American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts program – providing red hats for babies during American Heart Month! We are always so proud to be able to support our community in any way possible.

The Bristal Attends Veterans Appreciation Dinner

Residents of Massapequa, West Babylon, Sayville and Holtsville attended a very special Veterans Appreciation Dinner on January 20th. From the moment they arrived they were treated like royalty. From a special salute as they entered, to other veterans coming over to shake their hands, they could not have felt more special. Each resident also received a challenge coin based on their branch of service. It was such an honor to have been a part of this event. It will certainly be one that will remain with us as a cherished memory. As always, we thank all of our veterans for their service.

Tree Trimming in West Babylon

This week, we hosted our very first Tree Trimming Party here in West Babylon. Residents and staff dressed up like elves and helped decorate the tree. We spent the day in the lobby caroling, drinking eggnog, eating cookies and getting the ornaments just right on the tree.  It was a great way to kick off this holiday season – with new friends and in our new home!

Veterans Day in West Babylon

We had a beautiful afternoon as we celebrated our first Veterans Day here in West Babylon.  After a moment of silence at 11:11, we held a Veterans Day luncheon in the private dining room. Following lunch, we sang patriotic tunes and honored the men and women who served our country with a dedication service. Each veteran received a red rose and a pin that was made by The Bristal Helping Hands during our jewelry club. As the day came to an end, we enjoyed delicious red, white and blue cupcakes and some chicken soup for the Veteran’s soul!

Halloween in West Babylon

Here in West Babylon, we celebrated our first Halloween together!  Since all of the residents are new to the community, getting dressed up and wearing silly masks was a great way to encourage building new friendships.  The day consisted of our first annual costume party with spooky music by JK Hodge, and an apple cider social hour.  We are so excited to celebrate all the holidays to come, here in our new home.
