SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – New Jersey State Sen. Joseph Cryan, who represents the 20th District, recently toured the Center for Hope’s residence in Elizabeth, where he had the opportunity to see firsthand the breadth of residential services offered by the Center.

He was accompanied on his visit by Frank Brady, president of the Center for Hope Hospice & Palliative Care, the non-profit organization that owns and manages the Center’s two residences in Elizabeth and Scotch Plains. They were joined by the facility management team, who discussed the challenges faced by hospice organizations offering residential services and charitable care for those in need.

Cryan indicated his interest in partnering with the Center for Hope to pursue positive changes that will help support the organization’s work to deliver high-quality comfort care to patients with life-limiting illnesses.

Center for Hope Hospice has two residences: Peggy's House (and Administrative Offices), 1900 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains, and Center for Hope - Elizabeth, 111 DeHart Place, Elizabeth. The Hope Chest Thrift Store (26 Prospect St.) in Downtown Westfield provides a wonderful opportunity to continue to serve the needs of the community while simultaneously educating the public about the Center's hospice services. At the Center for Hope, the goal is simple: to help residents enjoy their lives independently with joy and comfort embedded in each and every day.
