ABout Geer - Senior Living Community

We are Family

Our staff brings a true sense of family into work. Many employees have worked at Geer Village Senior Community for decades, reflecting their dedication to our residents, visitors, and guests. We pride ourself on doing everything it can to retain good people.  Every year we recognize the contribution our employees make to life at Geer Village Senior Community with a special Recognition Breakfast.   We serve breakfast to over 40 of our finest with 20 years of service or more.  Each of these special employees is provided with a gift in recognition of their service.

This year we had over 45 attendees who in total represent over 900 years of service to Geer and our residents.  We are truly blessed to have a group of such caring and dedicated professionals.
