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."

Heritage Village Campus News. Morningstar Living embarks on a proposed addition to its services and living opportunities.

Home Lifestyles in Our Retirement Community Heritage Village Campus News

Morningstar Living is proceeding with development of Heritage Village, a second campus approximately one mile north of the Moravian Hall Square campus in the center of Nazareth.

The new 50-acre Heritage Village campus in Upper Nazareth Township will be home to residents 60 and over in cottages, duplexes, and townhouse accommodations.  Residents will have access to Moravian Hall Square’s campus for health care purposes, and in-home care services and geriatric care management will be available to all residents who live at Heritage Village. Transportation to the Nazareth campus will be provided to enjoy varied activities and meals, if desired.  Planned cottages at Heritage Village include two bedrooms, full kitchen, garage, and energy saving features and amenities. Townhomes will offer a unique and innovative single level floor plan with choice of one or two bedrooms, full kitchen, garage, similar energy saving features and social, educational, and recreational amenities.

Heritage Village will be laid out like a historical village similar to Nazareth and Lititz, PA with a village green, community center and green space with benches and fitness kiosks. Wetlands on the property will be preserved and add to the ambiance for residents and neighbors. The community center will accommodate meetings, programs and fitness facilities. An indoor pool is also planned. Residents will have lifetime residency in a maintenance free home without responsibility for lawn care and snow removal.  Morningstar Senior Living, Inc. will own and maintain the campus, buildings and roads and pay full real estate taxes to the township, Nazareth Area School District and Northampton County.
