Mary Dustin
Operating Officer

Throughout my 16 year career in Independent Senior Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care, I have discovered the greatest passion and compassion for our country’s richest history. It is such a pleasure to be surrounded by individuals who show such a zest for life and who live each moment to the fullest.

It is our desire here at Platinum Living Services to be inspirational and dedicated to each of our residents and encourage them to live life to the fullest. We pride ourselves on excellent resident care and our compassionate team members.

I see firsthand how quickly our new residents realize that our communities environments allow for families to feel at ease and residents to feel secure while having the ability to thrive. Our residents find that their lives change significantly when their activities of daily living needs are met. It is an exciting time when our residents start meeting new friends, building new relationships, discovering new hobbies and attending new social functions that they didn’t realize they would enjoy.

It is so fulfilling to know that every day I have the opportunity to touch someone’s life. There is nothing better than being in an environment where I am surrounded by our amazing residents and dedicated team members. You can feel it in the air from the minute you walk into our communities, they feel like home.

We are so thankful for the opportunity to touch those lives that need us the most. We will continue to do our best and create environments that allow our residents to live life to the fullest.

Cathy Dustin Executive Director
Cathy Dustin
Executive Director - Hampshire Manor

My journey started with our Platinum family in February 2013. After working 20+ years in the dental field, I developed a strong compassion for our country’s richest history. I began to realize that my passion was working one-on-one with our world’s most precious asset, our seniors. I had the opportunity to work as a Med tech in our Auburn community and knew from day one that this was my true calling. It has been such a great journey here with our Platinum team and I would not change it for the world. I currently oversee our six-bed board and care and also work hand-in-hand with our Assisted Living Communities, providing guidance and support to our amazing team.

Resident care, security, comfort, and vitality are my focus. Making sure that we are providing the best care to each of our residents is the goal I set for each community. Knowing that every day we touch lives that need us the most fills my heart with joy. Whether I am reviewing a med package, providing a helping hand in care, training one of our newest team members or just relaxing, talking about the good ol’ days with one of our residents, you will find me with a smile on my face. The most exciting part of my journey with our Platinum family is the time I get to spend with each of our communities. It is an honor to help with our care growth and be the support of some of the most brilliant care teams in the Northern California Region.

I also get the joy of supporting our six-bed community, Hampshire Manor, located in a beautiful well-established, quaint Roseville neighborhood. The greatest reward that you can give yourself is the ability to wake up every single day knowing your purpose and your intent. I welcome you to come in and see what we have to offer. Here at Hampshire Manor, we are all family, and there is no better reward than the beautiful smile on the face of our world's greatest treasure.

Executive Director - Gladding Ridge

I have worked for this company since 2012 and I began my tenure as the Executive Director of Gladding Ridge in May of 2019. I believe that those who lived through the Great Depression and World War II are appropriately called “The Greatest Generation.” I have gleaned more wisdom from casual conversations with residents in the community than years of college instruction and vocational training. The greatest lesson I learned was to treat others as I wish to be treated and to stand up for those who cannot stand for themselves. At Gladding Ridge, I have been given the privilege of caring for those who stood with compassion, valor, and honor. I am pleased to be an advocate for “The Greatest Generation.”
