Very happy with our choice

We chose The Bristol because it was very clean, beautifully decorated, fir into our budget plan ,and it was very close and convenient to our house and shopping. They have a lot of amenities offered such as a café, beauty salon, movie room, a full bar where they have happy hours, etc. They do also have a private dining room you are able to reserve for friends and family. My dads apartment has a full kitchen, full washer and dryer in a closet, large bathroom/bedroom/living area and a balcony that faces the back walking trail and trees. I would definitely recommend The Bristol... Read more

Not a community for assisted living

Our mother started at The Bristol as assisted living and it began as a wonderful experience. However, as her health declined, the aides continued to be supportive, but the nursing staff was unorganized. We worked through the issues and thought that everything was resolved. Until our mom had to begin hospice. We sat back and watched her slowly suffer due to issues with medical orders and communication disconnects. This facility is not nimble and our mother was a victim of medical cruelty when she needed support the most. Our hospice provider pulled in continuing care because The Bristol staff were too inexperienced to support our mom. If your parent lives, or would like to live at this facility, please be proactive with the more advanced care that will inevitably be needed.

Not great for Assisted Living

The Bristol is a beautiful building and the rooms are nice, but it is not a good place for assisted living. I have dealt with 4 Assisted Living facilities for parents and other family members and Bristol is very substandard in their care. It is not run well. The floor nurses can't answer questions about the resident. The standard answer is "I don't know". They are not tuned in to the residents needs. I asked then to do a UTI test for my family member as she was getting disoriented and upset. It took them 9 days to get the result back and she did have a UTI. Another time it took 6 days to get a result back and again it was positive. She missed a lot of meals, her alarm pendant went missing for more than 14 hours and she was not able to call for help if she needed it. Very disappointed in it. We moved her to another Assisted Living and she is doing very well. The medical care has been wonderful and I don't go home at night worried that she is not being taken care of.

My tour review

This was a nice community but the prices were a little higher than other communities. It was really expensive and did not have as many activities and things to do as another community that I was looking at and the location was also further. The community was not bad at all there was just another community that worked out better for my loved one.

Excellent facility. We needed to move to an Assisted Living center. All of management and employees are great. The Bristol is right next to the place we lived in for 38 years. It was a hard decision to make, but turns out to be a very good decision. We are very happy to be living here.

It's like a cruise ship that hasn't left the dock yet. The Bristol has done a very good job at adapting to the pandemic. It's a place for people who want to come in and be taken care of. The general staff is excellent.

I moved in the first day the Bristol opened. That was ten months ago and I have loved living here since. The building common areas and apartments are beautiful. The activities are wonderful- something for everyone and many everyday. Outings are always fun and there are a few every week. Best of all is the staff- they are outstanding! They help with anything you need are friendly, respectful, kind caring fun.

The Bristol gives peace of mind and reduces the stress of living alone. Can be by yourself and have privacy but know you're safe and taken care of. Relieves the stress of bills, grocery shopping, getting sick etc.. Friendly staff and neighbors, good cleaners and nurses/aids. People around you can relate to and from relationships with.

Highly recommend

I am treated like an independent living resident here. My apartment is bigger than where I was previously, the staff are very warm, friendly, and accommodating. There is a lot of activities provided as well for residents. The administrative staff is great which is important because it all starts at the top. The food here is chef prepared and I enjoy it. I would recommend to others who are looking.
