This week in East Meadow, we celebrated Patricia's 20th anniversary as an employee of The Bristal! Better known as Pat, she began her career with The Bristal as a Resident Services Aide, working her way up to her current position as a Resident Services Shift Supervisor in Reflections. She has been a valuable asset to the East Meadow team by always creating a welcoming atmosphere, mentoring new employees, and caring for the residents with such compassion. Thank you Pat, for your hard work and dedication to The Bristal family!⠀

Last week in Westbury we had such a great time getting into the holiday spirit. A human dreidel, menorah, and Santa paraded through the hallways spreading holiday cheer!⠀

This week is National Assisted Living Week and we are proudly honoring our outstanding team members! The theme this year is "Caring is EssentiAL" and it recognizes the vital role assisted living employees play in the lives of residents and their loved ones. Employees in Somerset were surprised with a Mister Softee ice cream truck earlier this week. It was a perfect afternoon treat to show the team how appreciated they truly are!

Our staff are the heart and soul of The Bristal Assisted Living, and recognizing the vital role they play in the lives of residents is important – now, more than ever. As we continue our 20th Anniversary celebration, we are proud to highlight the dedicated team members who have made a career out of caring for residents who call The Bristal home. ⠀

“I like coming to work every morning, because I have been here forever, and I plan to be here forever.” Steve Elliott began his career at The Bristal at Lynbrook in 2000 and has never looked back. Starting as a chef, he quickly gained valuable experience, and now serves as the Director of Food Service. He absolutely loves what he does, noting “It’s never dull. Even though it is the same job every day, there is always something different. You get the chance to be creative.” The joy he receives from cooking for residents is evident. “I really like being with the residents and doing little things – like personalizing their meals – to make them happier. They really appreciate everything you do for them.” We are truly grateful for team members like Steve, who make The Bristal Assisted Living so special!⠀

Jackie Armstrong is passionate about her career. It shows in the way she cares for residents at The Bristal at Lynbrook, and how she leads her team as the Director of Housekeeping. “I spoil them,” she says, referring to the residents. “I go above and beyond for them, because housekeeping is my passion.” She began her career at Lynbrook in 2000, and has been there ever since. She shares her thoughts on what makes working for The Bristal so special – “I love my job because everyone has the same vision. Everyone works together. They [management] respect us and because of that I can build a positive culture with my staff. I listen to them and encourage them to do their best.” We are truly grateful for team members like Jackie, who make The Bristal Assisted Living so special! *Note: picture previously taken.⠀

Virgo Smart began his career at The Bristal in 2003, working part-time as a dish washer while completing his business degree at York College. As he gained more experience in the kitchen – moving from dish washer to prep cook to sous chef – he fell in love with cooking. After finishing his degree, he decided to pursue a culinary degree as well. Virgo currently serves as the Director of Food Service at The Bristal at Lake Success, but has worked at The Bristal at Massapequa, as well as The Bristal at North Woodmere. His passion for cooking, and the joy he receives from preparing food for others to enjoy, is evident. It is also something he tries to impart to the team that he leads in the kitchen – “My job is to help everyone grow in their position. I try to act as a mentor and guide to my staff, so we can put out the best product possible.” His reward is the smiles on residents’ faces after meals. He continues, “Once I get that one resident who says they really enjoy my food – there’s nothing better than that.” We are truly grateful for team members like Virgo, who make The Bristal Assisted Living so special! *Note: picture taken Feb 2020.⠀

A local Facebook Group, "Bellmore Merrick Helping Our Heroes," has been collecting donations to support local small businesses and essential workers. With the money they have raised -- over $45,000 at this point -- they have been ordering meals to be delivered to frontline staff. They recently provided both lunch and dinner to our team at The Bristal at Garden City. Everyone was touched by the group's generosity, and the show of support from the local community! #thebristal #thebristalatgardencity #assistedliving #outstandingindividuals #thanktheteam ...
