Very poor leadership CM is in over her head and WB is no leader. She should be working at Burger King.

From the first day I walked into the Bristal to research whether to sign up my magnificent mother of 89 years young until today ( 5 months later) my family and I have only rave reviews for this 5 star hotel quality assisted living facility. The accommodations and the entire staff are warm, engaging and 100% responsible for their roles at the Bristal What a special TEAM..... My mother is happy, healthier and most of all safe!! Special thanks to Lori McGiness for making things happen from day 1. . What a fabulous experience for our entire family. Thank you Bristal of North Woodmere.,

My mom has been living at the Bristal for four years. They have been wonderful to her and to all of us. Recently, she has taken ill. The Social Worker, Smillie, has taken us all under her wing, and has gone out of her way to make sure Mom is well taken care of. An amazing worker and a wonderful staff!

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!

We visited several other facilities in the area but chose The Bristal 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 didnt 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 shes still there and very happy. I highly recommend the Bristal at North Woodmere.

The Bristal exceeded our expectations … and mom is like a new person! When we brought mom back to Long Island after 30 years in Florida, she was weak and mildly confused. She had a round the clock aide and a local daughter who visited often. She was no longer playing Canasta due to diminished ability. Four months later, mom is like a different person. She has friends. She has several regular Canasta games. She gets out - shows, shopping, lunch. She loves the occasional on-site vendors. She enjoys the movies, lectures and group discussions. The facility is lovely - nicely decorated, clean, secure. The staff is professional and personally involved with each family. I visit mom several times every week. She is happy, healthy and strong.

I'm an Industry 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, Latavia Ross, to Wellness Director Marcia Suckey, 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 members 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 Verna 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 Lori McGuinness 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!

I moved my father here over 1 year ago and he is very happy--the facilities are gorgeous, the food is wonderful, and (most importantly) the staff are very dedicated and caring. We owe the Bristal our thanks for taking such wonderful care of my father--he's thriving!

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 Lori McGuiness made mom's move a smooth and stress free transition for the whole family. Lori 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.

Beautiful, but not welcoming My Mom spent some time here, and while physically it was lovely and the food was very good, it was emotionally difficult - hard to join a card game, special rules not explained for bingo, no choice as to which strangers to sit with at meals. More attention to inclusion/emotional matters would be helpful.
