Our Independent and Assisted Living Apartments

Independent Living Apartments

The apartments at Geer Village are designed to be affordable.   Your monthly fee covers many services, including a membership to the YMCA.  There is a licensed nurse available, in the building, 24x7.  We strive to keep our residents healthy, independent, and active for as long as we can.  Should the need arise, residents have direct access to our onsite rehabilitation services and skilled nursing care.

Geer Village encourages an active lifestyle with many cultural events held right on-site.  There are also frequent trips to nearby towns, and we also house a library, media center, and an arts and crafts studio.  The Northwest Connecticut YMCA and Regional Community Center are also part of Geer Village.  Any programs held there are available at no charge for our residents. 

We provide our residents with light weekly housekeeping services, cable television, emergency call services, and routine apartment maintenance. All utilities are included.  Residents who wish to keep a car or two on campus have the benefit of reserved parking spaces at no extra cost.

The apartments feature a full kitchen with a microwave, a comfortable living/dining area, wall-to-wall carpeting, a generous walk-in closet, and a stacked washer/dryer.  One or two bedroom layouts are available.

Also included is a complimentary continental breakfast in our Garden Room, available daily, and the choice of either lunch or dinner from the extensive menu in our restaurant-style dining room.
