Living With Down Syndrome series Making a difference: Daymark Living

Hey, the past couple of weeks, I have been doing a 30-day trial; run at Daymark. To see if I like living here. The past two weeks it has been one heck of a ride. There have been some ups and some downs. It has been tough for me because I miss my family and friends and work. I am basically a workaholic and I love what I do. I even sometimes get bored, but I still love the job because I am there and If they need me I am still there to help. If you don’t know what Daymark is I will tell you. Daymark Living is. a community filled with people with IDD, that need help with daily living and also. live independently. I First heard of this place via an old friend from my childhood. He and his father created Daymark living. John Poston father of Michael his special needs son. That happens to be my oldest friend in need of finding his place in the world and to find friends My Opinion of this place is this is one unique place. The place is like a resort and the people here are so nice. They also have classes that teach us living skills and how to grow to. be independent and how to be a part of this society. John Poston has made daymark a Huge success and I know he did this just for his. son to live on his own. I am so proud of him for making a community filled with people of different abilities. So far I am not sure i see me living here forever but i am not giving up that easily. I will try to change my outlook on daymark but i know it can go slowly.m I just need to take patient with this process. Thanks John for everything you have done to make a difference in our lives.

Thanks. for Reading

  1. I can’t believe this. The place is like a resort. Have you seen the movie “Vivarium” or “Old?”
