Through these trying times, we’re constantly reminded of the power of positivity, the importance of connection, and the determination of the community at large to support those around them. Residents, their families, and staff have been doing an amazing job of encouraging one another in so many different ways, and uplifting spirits along the way. Below you’ll find some of the highlights of the wonderful things happening in our communities during this time. Residents are staying active, staff are working tirelessly to provide exceptional care, and families are going above and beyond to thank the team. As complex as this situation has been for us all, it has been wonderful to observe the compassion, kindness, and strength shown by everyone in our community. Outstanding individuals create outstanding communities, and we’re firm believers in that.

Yesterday in Jericho, we celebrated what would have been Elvis Presley's 86th birthday! We enjoyed singing some of his famous hits, while snacking on his popular favorite - peanut butter and banana sandwiches!⠀

Only one more day to prove yourself to Santa! Here in Jericho, our Elf on the Shelf, Jericho Jones, has been watching us closely so he could report back to the North Pole - fully masked of course.⠀

Today on #GivingTuesday we want to recognize The Bristal Helping Hands, a resident volunteer program throughout The Bristal communities. From crocheting blankets, scarves, and hats for those who need them most, to crafting gifts for their fellow residents just to put a smile on their faces, The Bristal Helping Hands do their best to better their own communities and the world - and that is what Giving Tuesday is all about!⠀

Happy Anniversary to Don and Terry who celebrated 65 years of marriage last week here in East Northport! This happy couple got married on November 5, 1955. They have 4 beautiful children and 7 grandchildren. After living in Melville for over 60 years, they moved into The Bristal at East Northport and we couldn't be happier!⠀

Last week residents and staff in East Northport turned The Bristal pink as a way of recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to honor all those who have been affected by breast cancer. The sea of pink was a beautiful sight, but the best part of the day was sharing our love and support with our peers.⠀

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Bristal Helping Hands in East Northport wanted to get to work crocheting blankets to donate to those who have been affected. We recently made a donation to the Huntington Hospital Volunteer Services Department, who will be distributing the blankets to those who are battling breast cancer. This month and every month we are so happy to be able to give back to our community.
