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.

Mr. Wilk, resident at The Bristal at White Plains, celebrated his 102nd birthday yesterday! The festivities looked a little different this year due to social-distancing requirements, but the celebration was no less special. Family members sang through the window, and employees went above and beyond to decorate and prepare all his favorite treats. Mr. Wilk definitely felt the love and we wish him the happiest birthday!⠀

We may not be able to get a tournament going, but we are happy to utilize some of our common spaces again (while social distancing of course)! Residents at The Bristal at Wayne are staying in the air conditioning this week and working on fine tuning their break and bank shots!⠀

Millie R., a resident at The Bristal at Lake Grove, was understandably upset when she learned she wouldn't be able to attend her grandson's wedding in person. Thanks to her family and staff at Lake Grove, she was able to attend virtually via Zoom. Although she wasn't familiar with using virtual technology, Millie quickly learned how to unmute her microphone so she could greet other attendees, and more importantly -- commentate on the beautiful ceremony! #thebristal #thebristalatlakegrove #assistedliving #lakegrove #keepingconnected ...

The Bristal is fortunate to have so many talented residents who are willing to share their gifts with others. Bill H., a resident of The Bristal at Sayville, entertained his fellow residents with an impromptu concert in the courtyard. A trumpet player with his own band during the era of Benny Goodman, Bill played tracks from his album while accompanying on his horn. It was a lovely concert that everyone enjoyed. Thank you Bill! #thebristal #thebristalatsayville #assistedliving #stayingactive ...
