The Coronavirus pandemic has affected everyone around the world and North Canaan CT is no exception.
Geer is making the best decisions possible with the health and safety of all our participants, families, and staff as our top priority. We are saddened by all that has occurred but take some comfort in knowing that no one at Geer has become ill due to the COVID-19 virus. That said, we cannot escape the fact that this virus remains dangerous for the people we care for and we cannot find a safe way to resume ADC operations.
Sadly, after much consideration we have concluded that we will not reopen Geer’s ADC program. The risk of infection as we transport highly vulnerable people across long distances and provide care in a confined space is just too great.
Going forward we are focused on finding new ways to help those who need support at home. We are happy to inform you we are creating an entirely new division at Geer focused on safe, alternative programming for seniors. Geer is embarking on the creation of a new division called Community Services with a goal to provide a variety of senior support services throughout our service area.
