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 difference...by enriching life's journey for all we serve."

COVID-19 Update

May 25, 2020

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and change rapidly. Morningstar Living remains committed to the well-being and safety of our residents and staff. We will continue to do everything in our power to mitigate the risk and spread of COVID-19 within our communities.

As we balance Morningstar Living’s desire to be transparent during this crisis, we also have an obligation to protect the privacy of the people we serve. For that reason, we are unable to release names or specific information relating to individual cases.    We will continue to share new information about any changes in COVID-19 related restrictions with residents and family members through our Morningstar Living App, weblink, and email.

As the COVID-19 situation remains very fluid, please check back regularly for updates.

At Morningstar Living, the health, safety and well-being of our residents and staff is our top priority.  At this time, there are a number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States, with a small number in Pennsylvania. Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected. We remain acutely aware that this number may grow in the coming weeks. We have no cases, or suspected cases, of COVID-19 at Moravian Hall Square or Heritage Village. We are, however, taking extra precautions to protect those who live and work in our communities and to prevent the transmission of this infection.

In order to limit the risk of infection we are no longer allowing visitors to our communities. We appreciate the support of families and volunteers but ask that you support us at this time by not visiting our communities. We have other restrictions in place within our community that affect both residents and staff. Morningstar Living will continue to take all necessary precautions under the guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  We are continually monitoring this fluid situation and will update our procedures as required. Family members are asked to call 610.746.1000 if they have any questions.

Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures.  We thank you for your cooperation as we work to mitigate this unprecedented risk.

Sincerely,

Susan Cooper Drabic
President & CEO

The staff is always pleasant, always helpful.
