Daylen's Place

The Place for the best life possible

Meet Daylen!

Daylen’s Place was established in 2020 by Daylen’s father, Greg Toews.  Greg’s vision was to give Daylen the best opportunity to live, achieve, and experience a life that is often taken for granted.

Like many parents of children with Down Syndrome, Greg wanted to give his son the best life possible after high school graduation. Daylen’s Field of Dreams is an opportunity for young adults to have a meaningful life and living experience amongst other people with Down Syndrome. 

Daylen’s Place is a one-of-a-kind housing and living experience situated near Okotoks, AB. Nestled in the peaceful river valley by the Darcy Ranch golf course, the residential facility includes two 4,200 square foot homes, each with seven master suites and state-of-the-art common areas. The facilities are designed to support safe and independent living for adults 18+ with Down Syndrome.

My first meeting with Greg was walking in a bare field of grass where his dream now stands, he was passionate about his vision then and it has only grown since then as we went through this journey.

Throughout the process Greg was very hands on and involved in all the design decisions from placing the houses on the lots to the colors and materials on the exteriors all the way to choosing appliances and floor coverings.

His dedication to Daylen and Gregs vision of giving Daylen and other Down Syndrome adults the opportunity to learn and grow into independent adults is an an inspiration to anyone with children, with or without Downs Syndrome.

About Daylen's Place

Daylen’s Place is a unique opportunity for young adults to have a meaningful life and living experience amongst other Down Syndrome people. 

Daylen Toews & his father, Greg Toews

Daylen Toews was born on February 22, 2002 and about a second later I loved this child more than anything in the world.

Daylen was born with Down Syndrome. He is a remarkable young adult that brings joy and laughter anywhere he goes. Daylen is athletic, caring and wants to learn.

Daylen has taught me more about life than I have taught him. This is my chance to give back to my son Daylen and to other adults with Down Syndrome and provide an opportunity to be the best they can be. I wanted to be part of the solution that gives adults like my son the best life possible, so I built Daylen’s Field of Dreams as a place for him to live and grow with others. So many times, young adults with Down Syndrome are left to stay at home and fall through the cracks. I believe these adults should have all the opportunities many of us take for granted.

My motivation for Daylen’s Place comes from my love for Daylen and wanting to change the lives of other adults with Down Syndrome.
