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.

All The Bristal communities joined together in celebrating Veterans Day. We are so fortunate having so many residents serve in various branches of the military. To honor them, we spent the day with wonderful dedication ceremonies — some veterans were even pinned and received a certificate of thanks. From heartwarming speeches & patriotic entertainment, beautiful displays and delicious patriotic-themed food, we recognize each Veteran for their bravery and service! #thebristalassistedliving #stayingactive ...
