A Message from the President & CEO

My heart goes out to all who have been affected by this worldwide pandemic. During times of crisis, we often come together in ways we've never come together before. We set aside insignificant things and shift our focus to what really matters most in life...the people we love and care about. As I reflect on the past months since things began to unfold with the coronavirus (COVID-19), I am humbled by and grateful for the work of our local emergency responders, hospital professionals, and other workers who are making it possible for people to get health care services, food, supplies and medications. These "Community Heroes" lend courage, strength and sacrifice through their service to others.

Being in the retirement living business, we at Morningstar Living have a monumental responsibility to take care of and protect the people we serve..."in health and in sickness." Caring for and protecting the residents and the clients we serve is what we do. We are responsible for hundreds of residents living at our two campuses in Nazareth, and the clients we provide in-home support and care to, who are living in their homes throughout the Lehigh Valley. Our residents and our clients rely on us 24/7/365. For this reason, we've taken some very extraordinary measures to limit the risk of infection and prevent the spread of the virus in our communities:

As I think about these extraordinary changes that we've made in a short period of time, I am in awe of my team members, who come to work faithfully and work tirelessly around the clock to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. Our team of Nurses, CNAs, Caregivers, Social Services, Wellness, Physical Therapy, Neighborhood and Community Life, Culinary Services, Maintenance and Security, Groundskeeping, Housekeeping, Transportation, IT and Administration...these are the Morningstar Living Heroes.

Yes, the world has certainly changed as a result of COVID-19, and so have we at Morningstar Living. Who knows how long we'll be dealing with this pandemic and its' aftermath? And while there may be more changes and uncertainty in the months that lie ahead, there is one thing of which I am absolutely certain...the mission and core purpose of Morningstar Living has never been more important.

"Making a enriching life's journey for all we serve."

Our Town. Just one visit and you'll want to call Our Town, your town.

Home About Us Our Town

Nazareth is an inviting and progressive town of approximately 7,000 residents where some of Pennsylvania’s most picturesque countryside can be found.

This quaint community, reminiscent of the era captured in Norman Rockwell’s paintings, is complete with small-town values and tree-lined streets.

Nazareth maintains its rich heritage as evidenced by its inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The downtown and shopping sections of Nazareth include just about everything you need close at hand – a post office, banks, restaurants, churches, shops, library, bakery, furniture store, flower shop, museums, a YMCA, and more!


From Nazareth, nearby highways provide easy access to larger towns such as Bethlehem, Easton, and Allentown in the Lehigh Valley. These communities are staunch supporters of the arts and offer a number of leisure and entertainment opportunities for year-round enjoyment. In addition, the area has five outstanding hospitals should you require specialized health care services.

Lehigh Valley International Airport is 20 minutes away. Within several miles of Nazareth there are 11 colleges and universities that offer classes, theater productions, and art exhibits to stimulate your mind. If you enjoy going out on the town, you’ll appreciate how close you are to the Allentown and Philadelphia Symphonies, a summer of Shakespeare theater, outdoor concerts, the State Theatre and its variety of music, comedy, drama, and top entertainers, and the Iron Pigs minor league baseball team.
