The Bristal at White Plains, a new assisted living community that offers memory care support as well as enhanced levels of care, is launching a new corporate outreach initiative for Westchester businesses to help their employees manage the challenges of caring for an aging loved one.
Called SAFE (Senior Advocacy for Employees), the program will serve to enable employers to take proactive measures and provide resources to address eldercare issues of their employees.
“We’re thrilled to provide this opportunity to local businesses to help lessen the impact of the challenges that employees face when they are put in the position of caregiver," said Susan Yubas, Director of Business Development for The Bristal at White Plains. "Being a caregiver can be a daunting task, especially when you are simultaneously concerned about your job and managing your own family. Employers can now truly lessen the impact of these challenges and help their employees remain productive and present.”
She noted that statistics show the aging of Westchester’s population is placing increased financial and emotional strain on both local businesses and their employees due to absenteeism, lateness, missed work days and possible job loss.
The SAFE program provides on-site presentations about eldercare and available resources specific to the issues facing employees. Program professionals, including assisted living professionals, elder law attorneys, geriatric care managers, home health agencies and long-term care insurance specialists, present in a panel format to provide information about their respective fields of expertise and employees are encouraged to ask questions specific to their individual situation. Panelists will also provide free half-hour consultations to participants if requested.
Additionally, The SAFE program also offers $1,000 off the first month’s rent to all employees of participating companies who have an immediate family member move into any of The Bristal Assisted Living Communities in the New York Metro area.

Located at 305 North St., White Plains, The Bristal at White Plains is a new assisted living community which features 148 residences, including 32 apartments dedicated for residents who require memory support.
