Meet the Executive Director

Shortly after partnering with Pruitt Health, David Goldston joined the Carolina Gardens, Garden City team in November of 2017. His background in the senior living industry began at a young age. As a child, he recalls roaming the hallways and visiting with residents at what is now Premier Living Nursing and Rehabilitation in Lake Waccamaw, NC, his hometown. During college years, in the mid 90ís, he began his career in SC by helping a friend with the operation of a 10-apartment assisted living community. That experience, combined with his achievement of the Eagle Scout, created a spark for the industry that resulted in a passion for enriching the lives and person-centering the care for senior citizens.

David purchased his first senior community in 2000 and from there, his NC company grew to encompass the management of a 5-property portfolio in eastern NC, as well as case-by-case consult services. Being on NCís list of certified preceptors, he has successfully led and trained numerous new administrators, some are among the regionís top senior living professionals.

While each individual component of senior living is important, he believes that quality dining experiences coupled with a robust and engaging life enrichment program are the two vital components that offer seniors a life of fulfillment and well-being. Each community he has managed has presented unique and challenging circumstances. It is from these challenges and their resulting outcomes that he receives a sense of accomplishment and value to this growing and ever-changing industry.
