Whatever your taste, patients of the Center for Hope enjoy restaurant-quality food throughout their stay.  From a robust 'all-day' menu (available throughout the day, 7 days a week) to a variety of daily specials, patients are presented with food options acceptable to even the most discerning of palates.  Additionally, patients and families are encouraged to speak with our kitchen staff about options NOT on our daily menus.  New this year, the Center will be introducing a digital ordering system.  Patients, on their in-suite iPads, will be able to order their meals from the comfort of their own suites.  Families will also be able to order items for their loved ones remotely, from an internet connected device.  Patients can enjoy means here, in our comfortable dining room, or in their individual suites.

In suburban Scotch Plains, Peggy's House sits next to the Ash Brook Reservation, a nature preserve with historic ties to the Revolutionary War.  As such, the residence sits next to a lush and green wooded area with breathtaking views year round.  The Center has various shaded sitting areas - ideal places to visit with family and enjoy some fresh air.  In response to COVID-19, we've set up a large tent with tables and seating to facilitate outdoor visits. 

Each wing of Peggy's House has its own additional living room / TV room.  Adjacent to the wing's kitchenette and outdoor patio, the room is inviting and comfortable...frequently used by patients and visitors alike.

Play Room

Residents and guests alike are welcomed to Peggy's House with our inviting main atrium.  At the Center of the facility, the atrium connects each of Peggy's House's three wings to one another.  It also houses the chapel, dining room and children's play room.

Both of the Center's residences have a non-denominational chapel for patients and families to utilize.  Our chapels have been witness to weddings, christenings, religious services, and group meetings.  The rooms offer an ideal setting for worship or to sit for quiet prayer and peaceful reflection.

Living Room

For our younger visitors, the Center has a play area nestled just off the main atrium.  The room has a variety of toys, games and activities for children of all ages.
