Memory / Specialty Care

Comfort Within a Continuum of Care

Geer Village Senior Community offers a unique approach to memory care designed to meet the special needs of residents diagnosed with memory care illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease or other related dementias.

We recognize that every resident and family is as different as their condition and the answers aren’t the same for each resident. Geer meets each resident and their family where they are on their journey and gently guides everyone involved to the right level of care at the right time for your loved one.

Geer couples the highest quality care with the most freedom in a safe, secure and home like environment. Encouraging each resident’s independence is achieved through customized clinical care, along with daily social interaction and therapeutic activities.

Continuity of care is one of Geer’s outstanding qualities. 33% of our staff have been with us over 5 years and 15% have been with us over 15 years!

Expertise

Geer’s staff is known for their compassionate, quality care! We pride ourselves on being experts in the field of senior care. Our staff regularly attend and we host many dementia training courses through our deep partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association of CT.

“It takes a special person to work with dementia patients, and Geer has a staff that is second to none. From the receptionist to the business office to the social workers to the nurses and CNA s, the quality of care is a blessing to my husband and I. Thanks you all for the care and concern you show every day.”

At Geer Village Senior Community, everything we do focuses on holistic senior living. We offer a place where one can age in a supportive environment, thriving at all stages of life.

Care Settings

Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has a separate care unit that is safe, secure and specialized to provide for resident’s medical, emotional and intellectual needs. This includes increased staffing levels around the clock and specially trained therapeutic recreation staff who encourage residents to engage in a full program of activities.

Patient care is directed by Geer’s Medical Director or the resident’s own physician, backed by a highly trained, certified and licensed staff of geriatric caregivers. We also have specialized training from the Alzheimer’s Association.

Families can be assured that their loved one who is experiencing memory impairment is receiving the best possible care and attention at Geer.

As your loved ones need change they can move through the continuum within the same community and sometimes even with the same caregivers! Nurses and CNAs are on staff 24 hours per day and care is provided to residents according to their level of need.
