My Mom's New Home

I have tears in my eyes (of joy and gratitude) while reading my mom’s letter to me. She has been in The Bristal at Lake Grove for about five months and she loves it. She said that she feels better than she ever has felt before in her life. She loves all of the activities, going out to eat, and recently going to Jakes (she had SO MUCH FUN). She never would have be able to do this when she lived alone- she writes that she does not feel alone anymore. She lived 55 years in her home and I never would have thought that she would have adjusted so well so soon -she raised her family in her home. But, we lived 45 mins away and if she had to go to the ER or doctor she would wait to tell us. Now, if she needs medical care she goes right down to wellness. She enjoys the delicious meals, made to order. She goes to balloon volley ball and Zumba. She just called me and said she saw the movie “Unstoppable,” and she loved it. She goes to the movies at least 2 X week. When she was living by herself, rarely ever. She has made new friends and is very sociable.
I am indebted to the kind and helpful Staff, to [name removed] no who kindly took our hands and showed us the home, answering any questions we had and got the ball rolling in motion.

I could never thank The Bristal at Lake Grove enough for bringing my mom back to me. This is a success story. Her quality of life and happiness are so much greater. Please consider The Bristal at Lake Grove. You will fall in love with it the way me and my mom have. You will never look back, only forward.

Successful transtion!

My mother has transitioned much better than I thought due to the wonderful people that have given her the extra care and help she needs at this stage of her life. Her daily Bingo game is the highlight of her day and she is finally making friends. Proof of that was the other day on her birthday i walked into her room and it was filled with cards and flowers from other residents. She has gained some much needed weight and her only complaint is she has to wait sometimes for her escort due to the fact that she is in a wheelchair 50% of the time. She also loves going to the casino-wish it was more than once a month!!

My new home

My name is [name removed]. I am resident at The Bristals at Lake Grove, NY. I just celebrated my third month here ([date removed]). It was an adjustment after selling my home, where I lived for 53 years. I have a lovely room and enjoy all of the activities: Bingo, exercise, movies, etc. They always celebrate holidays with music and refreshments. I have made friends here. The whole staff is very accommodating . It is like living at a five star hotel.

Extremely compassionate

My mother was in their Reflections unit. The entire staff was loving and caring. They always treated her and the family with the utmost respect.

Beautiful amazing building, grounds and rooms. 1 bedroom has living room, bedroom and kitchenette. nice activities. I came in at tail end of a great reggae band playing. Individuals were greeting my tour guide(not the other way around as if for show). One individual thanked her for reggae band, stating it reminded him of the times he visited Haiti with his wife. Expensive, 2000 more a month than other places without elevated care, but I guess you get what you pay for. Mom will visit, but will probably be out of her price range.

You should definitely consider this facility

Our family was exploring options for my parents to move into an assisted living facility, and after visiting more than a half dozen of them we whittled it down to a very short list, including this Bristal. Ultimately, my parents chose a different one for strictly geographic reasons (in a different state)...however I wanted to post this review as we were so impressed with the Bristal at Lake Grove. First, compliments to [Name removed] on their staff for handling our inquiries and visits (at least four of them) so professionally and thoroughly. [Name removed] is very knowledgeable and compassionate, and has a solid understanding of all of the aspects of assisted living and the many questions and issues involved. The facility itself is really impressive. The layout, accommodations, services and staff are all first class. They have thought of every detail when it comes to making it safe and enjoyable for seniors to live there. I highly recommend that you seriously consider this facility...and if you can, have [Name removed] show you around.

Very pleased with Lake Grove Bristal

The Bristal Lake Grove has been the right choice for my relatives. My loved ones acclimated beautifully to the full lifestyle provided to them at the Bristal. From the ease of registering to become a resident, through all the move -in and getting to know you aspects, medical and personal care--it was evident that it was the right choice for all of doesn't worry and feels right at home during all visits...all the staff members are professional and truly know and care for their residents personally...they even become like " extended family" to the family! I have seen a positive change in my loved one's health and attitude...always cheerful, well nourished and cared for yet still providing that sense of independence.

The facilities are first class...common areas are clean and beautifully decorated. Entertainment is varied to provide many different things to participate is always welcome too!

While some may think assisted living is costly, when you realized how much is offered, the lifestyle that is provided is worth so much more...being in one's home alone or with help would be hard to replicate all the benefits provided by the Bristal.

I am so grateful that we decide on the Bristal...thank you to all the Lake Grove staff for truly caring!

Very good choice

After many months at home with help of aides my mother could no longer care for my dad as his needs required more . After much research, visits , questions and emotion we determined after seeing the reflections area and meetings with staff we felt good bringing him over . We were given wonderful support during this move and transition and communication with us was often and solid. [Name removed] helped us from out first meeting thru out and welcomed us like family . [Name removed] director of reflections was sharp , a great eye and caring ...wonderful. 2 aides stood out the most to us and we are so grateful to all but them especially for the attention nurturing , quality of care given to my dad jack.....[Name removed] A ND [Name removed] My dad lite up each time he saw them. Place was very clean, bright and cheery. During an emotional and difficult decision in life we know he had good care here . As his medical needs required the next step we had to move , but had we been able to stay here we would have much longer. THANK YOU All FOR THE Care provided .

Both the residents and staff are treated like[Removed]. Some of the staff goes way above and beyond to make the residents day and it goes unnoticed yet the staff is reprimanded.

My family & I just want to thank the entire staff for making my mom feel so special during this difficult time in her life. She felt so welcomed at the Bristal the moment she walked thru the door. She is surrounded by so much care & love by everyone.

Nice Staff!!

I have no complaints about the staff and the information they had given me about there facility. They offer a 3 a day meal plan and also have many activities available for all of the residents to participate in during the week. They have a housekeeping team to help with the weekly chores and maintain a clean building.

Great Place to Retire

Staff fantastic and caring with tons of patience.
Gorgeous Surroundings.
Ongoing interesting activities.
Dining room is like a hotel.
Plenty of activities and events that include family.

We toured the property for my mother. Well kept with nice amenities and a pretty steep price tag. Close to the mall and other shopping. It's on our short list.

The Bristal of lake Grove - Great Place for Mom

Mom has only been there for 2 weeks, but I have already noticed an improvement in her. The staff are wonderful people, who are friendly and very attentive. They get to know each and every resident personally along with each family member. I am so happy we chose the Bristal of Lake Grove for mom. She is in the best care and I don't need to worry about her anymore.

We love it.

We love it. My father is thriving there. He's gained weight. He's socializing more. He's so happy. He's clean shaven. The place is spotless and it's kept clean. I haven't met one person I haven't liked. It's better value than Sunrise. Not saying Sunrise isn't nice but they were charging more. They nurture him. Honestly, it's amazing. they call me for every little thing. They called me to tell me he didn't have razors and they got him some. They keep me very updated. I would recommend.

they are good

My sister is living at The Bristal Assisted Living at Lake Grove . Overall she is doing good. She complains some, but I don't think that is their fault. The people there are really helpful and it is a nice facility.

Thank you for your review. We are happy that your sister is doing well living in her new home at Lake Grove. Please know that the door of your Executive Director, Melanie Sharfenberger, is always open if you have any questions.

Nice place, overall

Overall things have gone well at The Bristal. The facility itself is wonderful, and everything is always well kept and clean with no noticeable odors. The staff here is great, everyone has been very friendly and professional. My only complaint is that they increased my loved ones care level shortly after moving in, which came as somewhat of a surprise. The facility is also on the expensive side.

We greatly appreciate this fine review of The Bristal at Lake Grove, one of our latest communities to open, and it only reinforces and encourages our desire and commitment to provide Assisted Living care at the highest standards of quality, excellence and industry expertise. In so far as the increase in level of care is concerned: Although it occurs rarely, after residents have moved in, and we’ve been able to observe how they manage day-to-day, there are times when care levels need to be adjusted — even after an exhaustive pre-move-in assessment with the resident and family is made. It doesn’t happen often, but it may occur; and doing so is always in the best interest of the resident and family.
