Welcome to a life of exploration, luxury, and care.

A life of independence, curiosity, confidence, and peace of mind. That’s always been a part of you. And it won’t change at The Bristal.  In our senior living community, assisted living means enrichment and independence when you want them combined with support when you need it.

We offer gourmet meals three times a day, daily in-apartment housekeeping, plus amenities and programs tailored to your interests.

With convenient, one-of-a-kind locations on Long Island, NY, in Manhattan, NY, in Westchester County, NY, and in Bergen, Passaic, and Somerset Counties, NJ, our communities feature modern apartments designed for seniors who wish to live independently, or for those who need daily or weekly assistance. You choose how to live.  A personal care assistance plan is available to residents whenever they may need additional care.

All residents enjoy access to many fine amenities, services, programs, and the community atmosphere that are a hallmark of The Bristal Assisted Living.
