Present Moments Senior Living Brings Family-Oriented Senior Care to San Diego County

Present Moments Senior Living Brings Family-Oriented Senior Care to San Diego County

Vista, California – Seniors who need residential assisted care in the San Diego area have a new option in the form of Present Moments Senior Living. This family-run and veteran-owned senior living facility provides a comfortable home for seniors who need assistance with a wide range of needs, from help with routine daily activities and meal preparation, to memory care assistance, and even hospice care. 

The comfortable and well-appointed home is in a serene and beautiful residential neighborhood in Vista, California, and staffed by caring and attentive professionals.  There are many activities to participate in throughout each day, and residents are served home cooked family style meals. 

Creating a Home-Like Atmosphere for Our Aging Loved Ones 

Mark and Amy Gladden, the founders of the Present Moments Senior Living, set out to provide a comfortable and home-like setting for seniors, after many successful years of providing residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation at Present Moments Recovery, also in San Diego. Mark Gladden, a U.S. Veteran, serves as CEO of the new Present Moments Senior Living Facility, and Amy Gladden, CADCII, ICADC, is the CFO and RCFE Administrator (Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly and Adult Administrator). 

“It has been so rewarding to provide a home-like setting at our alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that our clients are really comfortable in and allows them to heal and recover from addiction,” says Mark Gladden, “so we wanted to create a nurturing environment that fosters physical, emotional, and social well-being to seniors as well.”  

Present Moments Recovery has offered the entire continuum of residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation care, from detox to outpatient care, including sober living, for a decade in San Diego. Mark adds, “At Present Moments Recovery, the group counseling sessions where our clients work together and get to know each other are transformative.  So, it was a natural progression for us to want to assist seniors in remaining socially active through recovery meetings, games, music nights, art and gardening projects, yoga and of course dining together.”
