The Bristal understands the important role that staying socially active plays in keeping ourselves happy and engaged – we all feel better when we make time to have fun! Our team of recreation professionals are continuously seeking new and innovative way to help residents stay active – especially given the current environment. From delivering the supplies for painting projects to themed dance parties (socially distanced, of course), there is an activity for everyone. When there’s a will, there’s a way, and we are certainly finding that way! Here are just a few of the ways we’re staying active:

This past Wednesday, residents in East Northport participated in #NationalWalkingDay. The warm sunshine on a beautiful spring day, made the trip around our balloon-decorated walking path so enjoyable – it was the perfect way to embrace this gorgeous weather.⠀

We enjoyed a beautiful Passover Seder here in Englewood this weekend! The evening was filled with an array of traditional food and music, as we reminisced about our different traditions - all while creating new ones with one another!⠀

This week we celebrated a very special birthday - Somerset resident, Morton S. (better known as Morty) turned 99! Born in Poland, Morty came to the US in the 1950s, and loves sharing his stories! He enjoys listening to music, playing the piano, and dancing. Morty was so grateful for all of the birthday wishes from everyone in the community, and they were much deserved! Happy Birthday, Morty!⠀

Here in Somerset, we had a great time watching the game on Sunday. Big football fan, Irwin, and his wife Rita got silly posing for the camera. Chicken wings, birch beer, and some props made for a perfect game day!⠀

A special surprise for Lake Grove resident Marilyn on her 89th birthday! After waking up to this beautiful display setup outside her window yesterday, she learned that her family had delivered "a party in a bag" - filled with all the bells and whistles that make celebrating your birthday a good time! To make Marilyn's birthday extra special this year, her daughter started sending her a card a day to open beginning January 1st. In that card was a puzzle piece, and on day 20 the puzzle would be complete. Things may have looked a little different this year, but Marilyn feels more special than ever as she enters her 89th year!⠀
