pic-two-of-Morris-Hall-Meadows2While cold temperatures and snow undoubtedly create challenges for construction crews…the Green House homes being developed in Lawrenceville, New Jersey are still set to open within the next four to five months.

Morris Hall Meadows will include six skilled nursing Green House homes.  Ten Elders will live in each home, which will include their own private bedroom and bath, a central hearth area with a fireplace, full kitchen with home cooked meals and a dining area.

The project is being developed by Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc.  Morris Hall and St. Lawrence are both not-for-profit agencies sponsored by the diocese.pic-three-of-Morris-Hall-meadows1

Morris Hall consists of St. Mary’s Assisted and Residential Living and St. Joseph Skilled Nursing Center.

When the project was announced to the community, Darlene Hanley, President and CEO of Morris Hall/St. Lawrence, Inc., expressed, “The goal of the Green House Project and Morris Hall Meadow is to give options to consumers. Currently, there is only one Green House community in New Jersey, and we will be the second one in the state. We welcome the opportunity to share this unique project with the community and are pleased to offer both traditional and innovative options in nursing home care.”

We are most excited about this project in New Jersey and look forward to the Grand Opening late this summer!

Sponsoring Organization History
Green Hill traces its roots back to 1866 in Newark NJ, beginning with a small, yet successful, residence for only 13 women, by 1872; demand for the thoughtful care offered resulted in an expansion to 60 residents. Little or no government aid was available, so operations were financed by continual fundraising and gifts. In 1881, a division of the Newark YWCA opened their doors to those in need. In 1958, the two groups merged to form the Memorial Center for Women. In 1965, after relocating to West Orange, NJ, Green Hill came to be.
