"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." MKB (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"The community feels like a resort. The rooms are spacious in the apartments." Jean L. (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"I think we've been to The Bristol a few times already. The physical appearance was fantastic, especially the fourth floor was looking out over to the back and a large patio where you can see the woods. It was just beautiful and the apartments were reasonably sized. The staff was very cooperative. They kept in touch with us but didn't bother us. They've been very attentive but not pushy. We also tried the food and we enjoyed it. They had a movie theater and an exercise area. It was very comfortable and several people were very nice enough to let us go into their apartments, and they're very generous in sharing their thoughts. They all had a very positive attitude." William

There are 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.

Thank you so much for thinking of us with the Valentine’s treats. Such a nice surprise! And so delicious!
When Dick and I came home from running errands yesterday, Rachael’s car was in our driveway and she was just then delivering the goodies to our doorstep. She was so adorable as she greeted us and shared the fact that she was from The Bristol. That was such a caring, kind gesture from your facility. Thanks to you and Rachael—and will you pass along our thanks to others responsible for our treat.
Looking forward to seeing you again later next month!" Diane S.
"Carrie, thanks so much for these updates. They are extremely helpful. Linda and Cecil have had nothing but positive things to say about Bristol and are so appreciative of how kind everyone is and all the efforts to drop off in-room activities, snacks and drinks, etc.
And before the quarantine, they were so impressed (me too!) that you had activities - outside fire pit and music, painting class, boxing, outside excursions (I hear about them all!) - despite the fact there was less than a handful of residents at the facility thus far. I don’t think many places would have gone to the trouble and expense with so few people living there.
My mom reports it appears there are going to be some amazing Christmas decorations and she’s excited about that, too.
Just wanted to pass along the feedback. It makes me so happy that they’re happy. Thanks for everything, Carrie, and please convey my appreciation to your staff as well." Lisa

"I felt I should make the change. I was getting older, my husband and I are getting older, I have a big home. And so I thought I should make that change. And I saw this building going up and what I saw I liked. Opening day, I came and I fell in love with it. From the management all the way down, absolutely great.
The chapel I do appreciate having because I visited it the other day and they have a mass every last Friday of the month. I look forward to that and that's a nice feeling right there. And if I have nothing better to do, I walk up to the chapel and there's always someone there having a service. That's a nice feeling, too." Dot H.

"It was harder for me to get around and i couldn't drive. And so my niece and I decided, it was time for me to find a place where I could have companionship. I just love getting up and coming to the restaurant and having something to eat and not having to worry about my food and the weather of getting out and doing the dishes." Virginia O.
