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.

On National Best Friends Day, we are highlighting Betty Bauman and Pat Kirtyan, who are newer residents of The Bristal at Massapequa. The pair met after they were seated for meals together and soon discovered they had much in common. They began attending Open Art sessions and realized they both enjoyed jewelry making, painting and other activities that they hadn’t tried before! Both have wonderful senses of humor and infectious laughs -- they bring such joy to team members while regularly showing up for programs. Relationships like the one Betty and Pat share is what makes The Bristal a truly special place to call home! ⁠
