“I just wanted to express my appreciation for all you have done and are doing for my mother. She is acclimating well; in fact better than expected! Her table mates are great. She also is enjoying her meals. So far so good!"
“I wanted to say a special thank you to you and your staff for everything you did above and beyond in making sure that all of your special people were going to be safe and taken care of during the hurricane. When I left there on Saturday knowing that all of you were staying over, I was truly overwhelmed at the level of dedication that was displayed.”
“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.”
“The entire team at The Bristal at Sayville made Mom feel welcome from Day 1, as did several residents - some of who live on the same floor as Mom - they promised me they would come by and they did - on the first day. Amazing! The residents all seem pretty happy and content, which gives me comfort, too!”
“Your beautiful grounds and clean, attractive interior décor are first-class. I am impressed by the thoughtful selection of music one hears in the corridors and meeting rooms. The mental and physical activities for the residents to keep their minds and spirits active."

“The Bristal at Sayville is not only beautiful and immaculate, but it provides a caring, professional atmosphere. The directors, medical team, front desk, care aides, recreation staff as well as the kitchen, laundry and housekeeping departments work well together to create this excellent facility. They are always available to answer questions and provide support to the family when needed. The staff is well trained in the care of the dementia patient, and that care is done with compassion, hugs and kisses. It feels like a big ‘family.’ I am happy for the dignity that is shown my husband and secures that he is in a very good place.”
"We want to take this opportunity to commend all of you for the excellent care you have given our mother, Freda Cohen. In particular, we want to mention Allison and Vera from Wellness who have gone above and beyond in helping all of us to meet Freda’s needs. They have generously given of their time, knowledge and compassion in caring for Freda. Now that the time has come for her to move on to another level of care in a new Bristal (East Northport), we can only hope the staff there is as excellent as you all have been.
Everyone at the Bristal at East Meadow has made us feel like it really is a home, not just a facility for the elderly. We will miss all of you and I know Freda will, too. Fortunately, Patricia is the director there and a familiar face for us. We will expect Freda to make a good adjustment and hope for the best.
Thank you again for all your hard work and caring."

"What a delightful experience residing here at the Bristal for eight years. Having Vera Curcio LPN on the staff gave me confidence and such good direction when I needed it, especially when old man time is catching me! Vera is to be praised for making this resident secure, comfortable and in considerable good health. Thank you and your staff for upholding the name Bristal."
"To the loving staff of Reflections—
You are all so dear to me. When I come into the unit feeling alone and sad, you are there to welcome me with your love. When I have an exceptionally difficult visit with Mom, your arms are open to offer a hug. Always, I feel your support. I get to see how sweet and gentle you are, how respectful of the residents you are regardless of your own exhaustion and personal lives. You are a role model for others who do this challenging work. You deserve to be appreciated for all that you do for the residents and their families.
I appreciate you all.
I will never ever forget all you have done for my mother and for my family."
"I want to thank you for making my mother’s 100th Birthday Party a huge success. You were outstanding in helping prepare, plan and deliver so that this occasion would be very memorable!! By the way, the food was just GREAT! It meant so much."
