Alphonse: "Dad was a resident for 8 years, and always treated with respect and kindness.. Everyone knew his name and greeted him.

MemaD: "I drop in unannounced 3-4 times a week. Staff always very friendly and my relative loves the food there. There is a variety of activities for residents to participate in. Rooms are neat and clean with a slip up once in a while but nothing horrible. Attempts to keep odor free are successful about 75 percent of the time but considering what the facility is, I find this to be an impossibility to accomplish 100 percent of the time. The med staff is right on the ball with th... (read more)

ptels: "I am writing this from what is likely a unique perspective. My brother and I (both of whom live out of state) toured many places before deciding that Amberleigh was by far the best place for our parents, and we moved them here 2 years ago. They were very happy. My father passed away several months ago and I have been living with my mother since then, to get her over the hump, so I can speak as a resident. I think Amberleigh is great and I recommend it to everyone, without an... (read more)

Bristol Village, Inc.

12 reviews
Katie023808: "The Bristol was the one I liked the most. It was the best quality place. The most important thing was how clean it was, making sure the living experience was a good quality, and making sure that the room they were in was a good quality room. The grounds in their facility and the location were beautiful. However, it was a little too far out. It was little bit more expensive than the other ones. "
