Darren Vierck


After 4 years of working acute care for Kaiser Permanente, Darren started Canyon Creek Adult Family Home in 1999. With an abundance of experience and knowledge, he had a vision to provide a safe, comfortable environment for the medically fragile. When Darren recognized an overwhelming need for a more home-like environment for ventilator dependent clients previously confined to nursing homes and hospitals, he made the transition into a ventilator exclusive facility. Having a construction background, he remodeled the entire home to accommodate beautiful, private, large suites for each resident. Darren remains active in the daily operations of the facility providing top notch nursing alongside business ownership responsibilities.
