Was not impressed with the wellness department. Seems as if the director has no clue as to what’s going on. She’s very rude to the residence and her staff. She is more like a zoo keeper.

Very Happy at The Bristol of North Woodmere!

We visited several other facilities in the area but chose The Bristol at North Woodmere because it was like entering a 4 star Hotel instead of an assisted living facility. Not only is it so bright and cheerful, but the staff and all of the aides are so nice and helpful. My mother-in-law is so much happier here interacting with people rather than being in her old apartment all alone. She gets all of the assistance she needs throughout the day. Plus the wellness center has regular visits from a general practitioner, podiatrist and optometrist with a nurse on hand. Three good meals a day, movie theatre, exercise classes, hair salon and Shabbat every Friday, what more could we ask for. My mother-in-law didn't want to leave her apartment but once she took the tour and spoke to Lori the sales director who made her feel at ease and answered all of her concerns, she decided to try it and she's still there and very happy. I highly recommend the Bristol at North Woodmere.

A Super Transition

My mother was in a facility in Birmingham, Alabama, and we moved her back to Long Island. We chose the Bristal in North Woodmere because of location and all in all friendliness of the staff. My family could not be any more happy with our choice. She acclimated very well due to the caring staff. As a family we are extremely pleased with the care that she is receiving. There are a myriad of activities that fit all areas that are important for seniors. The Bristal also involves family in different events that they plan such as Grandparent's Day. Holidays are also celebrated with special lunches or dinners. All in all, my family and my mother are very pleased with the Bristal of North Woodmere. Thank you for being there for all seniors.

Highly recommend!

My dad has been a resident here for a year and a half. The entire staff from aides to management are compassionate and caring people. They help pair up people who they think will be friends, add activities to meet the interest of residents and the facility is immaculate. My 12 year old thought grandpa moved into a hotel. Highly recommend!

The staff is attentive and caring and help promote a friendly comfortable atmosphere for all of the residents. The executive director and the administration seem to be on top of ensuring the well being and enjoyment of the residents. They do a good job of communicating any issues with the family of the residents. The residents seem to like one another creating a nice social setting.

The Bristal: Mom and Dad will LOVE this Community

I am a Healthcare Professional who owns a Home Care Agency. I am a frequent visitor to this Community (as residents occasionally call upon my Agency to provide short-term, one-on-one assistance for Mom or Dad in addition to the services they receive at The Bristal). I have also referred a number of families to The Bristal at North Woodmere. The staff is extremely warm, friendly, welcoming and professional, while the Community itself is clean, gorgeous, and vibrant. This is a direct reflection on the Staff, as well as on the Bristal Philosophy and Mission Statement. From the ED, [name removed], to Wellness Director [name removed], and on down to Food Services, Recreation, Housekeeping, Wait Staff and the Front Desk, every member of the Bristal Team takes it upon themself to engage the Residents individually, and to make them feel like they are respected and valued member of the Community. I am most impressed with how "social" the atmosphere at the Bristal feels. There is always a buzz in the lunch room (where Food Services Director [name removed] takes great pride in providing delicious and creative meals and snacks). And there is a constant bustle of activity - from Music Programs, to regular Card games, to Movies, and of course everyone's favorite: Bingo! There are also frequent Bus Trips for Outside activities like the Beach, Broadway Plays, and other Special Events. The rooms are beautiful, and provide a true feeling of home when the Residents have had their fill of the daily activities in the Community. DCR [name removed] is often giving tours of the building during my visits, and takes great pride in helping families make an informed, UN-pressured decision as to whether her Community is the "right fit" for the family's Loved One. I am frankly a bit envious of the amenities, luxury and pampering that Bristal North Woodmere residents get to experience, and would wholeheartedly recommend this Community for families looking to ensure that Mom and Dad get the most out of their Senior Years!

My mom has been living at the Bristal in North Woodmere for over a year and still says "Home Sweet Home" when returning from an outing. Nothing could be more comforting than seeing her in a happy and safe environment. Working with [Name removed] made mom's move a smooth and stress free transition for the whole family. [Name removed] works very diligently to make sure everything is taken care of. I especially love how the whole staff greats my mom by name and everyone is very in tune to her needs. I highly recommend the Bristal at North Woodmere.

The Bristal North Woodmere

Mom's move to the Bristal was accomplished in a very fast and relatively stress free environment. I owe all this to [Removed], who no matter how often I called or emailed her she always made time for our family. She was extremely sensitive to what we needed and went out of her way to help us. We chose the 1 bedroom at the last minute and it was available within 24 hours of our request. Mom has been living at the Bristal for 6 weeks now and is extremely happy. Everything from the food to the staff is exactly what we had hoped for. We are so pleased with our decision and know that our Mom is in the best assisted living home. I would highly recommend The Bristal at North Woodmere!

Food could use some improvements!!

I think the only complaint my dad had has while he was at this community was the food. He had mentioned multiple times that there was never enough choices to choose from and that it felt like they had the same meal all the time as well as the food always being very bland. Other than that I have been pleased with the quality of care he has been receiving as well as the friendliness of all the staff members.

Smiles From The Staff

I have no complaints my mom had wonderful care in the Reflection Program that is offered here. They were willing to accommodate the family and understood the situation. In the beginning they called me to explain their program and when I toured I saw good attitude from the staff and saw that the program is what she needed for dementia. It's not constant care but also not a nursing facility. During her respite my mom enjoyed the meals and the staff said she had a good appetite.

Thanks

My mother was a resident at the Bristal at North Woodmere for a few weeks of respite. The ladies of the Reflections program there were wonderful to her and to me. Their smiles, their good humor, their interaction with my mom, their care of her, did not go unnoticed. My mom just flourished there. She and I both wished she could continue staying there but unfortunately it was too financially expensive.

A lovely place!!

A few of the caregivers were better than others. The rest of the caregivers were not attentive. They treated mom like she was a child. The food was mediocre. They had set dining room times. She went out to wait for me and the staff said she was wondering. I then had to hire attendants to help them watch her. I feel they over reacted and she is no longer at this community.
