About Geer

A Key Part of Northwestern Connecticut

Located on over 70 acres in historic Canaan, Connecticut, Geer Village Senior Community is a non-profit organization and community of independent seniors, residents with infirmities, daily program participants, caregivers, families, staff, neighbors, volunteers, and friends.

Our services include independent living apartments, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, outpatient physical therapy, pharmacy services, dial-a-ride, low-income housing and community gathering spaces that are all located on our beautiful campus.

In addition to our services, you will also find the Canaan branch of the Northwestern CT YMCA here. An on-site cafe is also open to the public for breakfast and lunch. Many local civic and community groups call Geer Village Senior Community home for their meetings and charitable works.
