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.

Jane R., a resident of The Bristal at Lake Grove shares what she enjoys most about being a mom: “Mother’s Day was always very special in our family. We made a big thing out of it… Watching my little ones grow up from little tiny kids to married women, and now they are mothers of their own has been a real joy. Being a mother is very special and my girls do it very well.” #thebristal #thebristalatlakegrove #assistedliving #keepingconnected #mothersday ...

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 ...
