Seems very nicereviewed on: 10/11/2013 by EW
I toured this place 2 times, once alone, one with my mother. This place opened Fall 2012, so it is very new. They were building an outdoor pool when we visited. It seemed lovely, the staff seemed very good, and the residents we spoke to were very happy there. The apartments are smaller than at some other facilities, but very nice. Like other assisted living facilities, the apartments do not have a full kitchen, only a sink, microwave, and fridge. Unfortunately, the fridge is pretty small (not full height), so the freezer is tiny and instead of putting the fridge on something to make the contents easy to access, it is located on the floor, making it difficult for many seniors who may have trouble bending, stooping, or with balance issues.. There are very limited number of 2 bedroom apartments and they are all rented. We ate there once and the food was okay, but bland. If visitors want to come, there are 2 private dining rooms that are free to reserve, though you pay for the meals. One of the rooms has a full kitchen so you can actually prepare a family meal there. One thing my mother was not so happy about was that visitors must go these rooms--they can not be accommodated in the dining room, as is possible in her current place. This is a minor detail, as if she wanted friends to join with our family, they could come into the private rooms with us. Just something to consider if, say, a granddaughter comes to visit often. Also, since there are only 2 rooms, holidays and weekends might book up, though they told us that hasn't happened (but they were only at 47% capacity when we visited). The activity calendar looked interesting, but there is no transportation to doctors as there is a medical building right next door and doctors come to the place. There are limited shopping trips, but other nice events, including weekly library trips, and some trips to restaurants, stores, and shows. There are also in-house special events like concerts. As always in these places, there are abundant card-playing and movie-watching opportunities. The activities director was very eager for suggestions of activities from residents. For other transportation options, White Plains has an interesting deal with the county. For trips within White Plains, instead of needing to call and schedule rides with the county senior bus service, you can just call a designated taxi service and pay the same $4.00 per ride--much easier than the experience of calling the "Beeline."
Good place, overallreviewed on: 05/09/2014 by Loved one
They do a great job here overall! The facility itself is nice looking, and always very clean. The care staff are friendly and professional, and very good at engaging the residents. They also provide excellent care for the residents, they have a primary care doctor that visits once a week and an attentive and knowledgeable nursing staff.

My mother lives at the Bristal White Plains and I wanted to take the time to share my/her positive experiences. The staff could not be better. Everyone is friendly and professional. They really take good care of her...from the wait staff in the dining room, to the front desk, to the nurses, to the director, everyone is kind and takes the time to stop and make sure things are going smoothly. The facility itself is extremely clean and new. Very happy with our experience this year.
Mom is in good hands at the Bristolreviewed on: 02/23/2019 by Zavis and Milo Zavodni
To Whom it may Concern Our mother Mila Zavodni, now 103 years old, has been a level 2 resident of the Bristal Assisted Living Facility in White Plains since November of 2017. During those 14 months, my brother Milo and I (he lives in Maine, I live in Utah) have paid her regular visits, usually lasting for 5- 7 days each time, and have consequently had many occasions to observe the staff and the operations at the facility. We find many of the employees to be hard working, friendly, and caring of the residents. They appear to take pride in their work and a number of them go "above and beyond the call of duty” in their interactions with the residents. And, of course, our mother has various favorites, where her face lights up when they enter her room. We continue to be pleased that the facility is kept neat, clean, and has an “up-to-date feel” about it. The decorations during the various holidays always add to the welcoming and homey ambiance. The house-keeping staff maintains our mother’s room and the common areas fresh and clean. The maintenance staff does a good job of keeping things running smoothly and efficiently, and responds quickly to requests for repairs or modifications. The front desk is well managed and access to the facility is properly controlled but in a friendly manner; we are especially happy to note that the sign-in/sign-out procedures are strictly enforced. While not always responding in the quick space of time that our mother hopes for, the staff is professional and ready to help. Nursing care is properly administered to satisfy her needs. Drugs appear to be given regularly and in proper dosages. The food is well prepared with a wide choice to cater to every appetite. (We do sometimes wonder if such an extensive selection at meals is really necessary.) Our mother is too weak to participate in a broad array of extracurricular activities, but we sense that these are well-chosen, quite diversified, and appreciated by many of the more active residents. The senior staff have proven to be very understanding of the residents' needs and stand ready to cater to special requests of family members and visitors. The Bristal has done a good job of communicating any unusual events to us, as concerned parties of a resident. While there is always room for improvement, we feel that our mother is in good hands at the Bristal. Zavis and Milo Zavodni sons of Mila Zavodni
The community is immaculate. The staff is very friendly,reviewed on: 05/08/2014 by Family Member
My mother is very happy, she has put weight on and, she is making friends. The community is immaculate. The staff is very friendly, even when I go and it's happy hour, the aides are just nice to everybody, walking around and saying hi, checking on people, and not just the residents. It's nice to just have a small kitchenette which encourages her to go to meals, which she says are very good. I don't have to worry about her when I am on the road. The activities are pretty good, there is enough different things going on that people don't get bored. She doesn't like to miss bingo even one day. It's been just great.
