When you can’t be there … Geer Cares

At Geer Village Senior Community we realize caregiving is a full-time and sometimes stressful task. Taking a break is important to keep you at your best so that you can continue to care for your loved one.

We know that everyone does not require the same type of care. That’s why at Geer Village Senior Community, we offer a few options. Regardless of the option, you choose we can offer you peace of mind that your loved one is safe and well cared for while you take time to care for yourself.

Knowing this allows you, the caregiver, to “take a break”!
