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."

Life Care Plan. The Life Care Plan at Moravian Hall Square gives Independent Living and Morningstar Hall Personal Care residents peace of mind knowing what the future holds financially.

Home Life Care Plan

Virtual-TourMoravian Hall Square is a Continuing Care Retirement Community and much, much more…it is a Life Care Community.  What is the difference?

A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) offers a full continuum of care “under one roof. “  Residences for independent living, personal care, and skilled nursing are available on one campus.  Residents never have to move again, even as their health care needs change over time, because all of the health care accommodations they need are available on site.

A Life Care Community offers the full continuum of health care accommodations that a CCRC does, but it also offers a lifelong insurance component as part of the residency contract.  Moravian Hall Square’s Life Care Contract provides residents with prepaid health care accommodations from independent living through skilled nursing care.  Life Care Contracts are available for independent living and personal care residents.  A Life Care Contract means:

  • Access to the full continuum of health care services and accommodations at the community is unlimited for residents who have Life Care Contracts.  Residents have priority access to the accommodations they need at every level of care.  Seniors who need increasing levels of health care services do not have to move to another community to receive those services.
  • Future costs of residing in the community will not escalate as a resident’s health care needs increase over time.  In other words, residents who have a Life Care Contract never have to pay the higher monthly fees that are associated with higher levels of care such as personal care, memory care, and skilled nursing care.  In this way a Life Care Contract is the only way seniors can avoid the higher, unpredictable costs associated with health care accommodations that are needed over time.
  • A residency contract that includes a lifelong insurance component enables seniors to protect their assets from potentially devastating expenses.  There are not per diem limits associated with the long term care needs a Life Care Contract provides.
