    Does anyone know of transportation resources in Union County NJ?

    My Mom was recently diagnosed. We are all struggling with the news and treatment. Does anyone know of any resources to help with transportation from her home In Westfield, NJ to Sloane Kettering in Basking Ridge. Since it is out of her county she does not qualify for an ambulette and we are really struggling on how she will get there 5 days a week. any help would be so appreciated

      Check with the American Cancer Society. They have a program called Road to Recovery. http://www.cancer.org/Treatment/SupportProgramsServices/road-to-recovery

      You could also try calling the Westfield Police Department, that might be able to put you in touch with local resources.

      I would also ask for a social worker at Sloane Kettering. They probably have a list of resources as well.

      I grew up in NJ in Garwood. I know there are lots of resources in the area, you just have to be able to find them. Between Sloane and ACS, you should be able to find something.

      Good luck.

      These are good suggestions, and may I add that you can also contact Air Charity Network at[phone number redacted]. also available at aircharitynetwork.org. They provide transportation to patients traveling for treatment. Good luck.

      Have you tried the department of aging? In California there are a ton of free programs including transport. Also, check with the doctors office :))). Good luck!!!

      Call the cancer society of America.... ask for their assistance... Here in Minnesota there is a 'door to door' service called CART, and other van services available to someone like your mother... Very reasonably priced... My mom used them into her 90's..
