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."

Morningstar Living - Our History

Our History

Morningstar Living was incorporated in 2012 to expand services for seniors in the Lehigh Valley. As we celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Moravian Hall Square retirement community in 2013, we are ever mindful of our history and grateful to the founders and the staff, many of whom have been here almost from the beginning, who have made Moravian Hall Square the ‘gold standard’ in retirement communities, both in the Lehigh Valley and nationally as an accredited retirement community. We look forward to continuing that excellence in our new endeavors.

MorningStar Living - HistoryThe concept of Moravian Hall Square began in the 1970s as a dream in the minds of several visionary and resourceful Moravians. By 1984, a board of directors was assembled and Moravian Hall Square was established under the support of the Eastern District of the Moravian Church. Construction began in 1986 on the original tract of land purchased by the yearly Moravians during the 18th century. In 1988, Moravian Hall Square opened its doors.

Throughout its history, Moravian Hall Square’s affiliation with the Moravian Church has been a constant strength, with Christian values guiding services for individuals of many faith traditions.
Nestled on 15 acres in downtown Nazareth and in the foothills of Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountains, Moravian Hall Square offers a convenient and beautiful setting for retirement living. The town’s offerings – including shops, churches, restaurants, the public library, YMCA, banks and medical office are just a short walk away. This affords frequent interaction between residents and Nazarenes.

A second campus, Heritage Village, only a mile away, is currently under construction to serve a new group of residents who choose a community espousing the same set of values as Moravian Hall Square.

In 2013, Morningstar Living acquired Senior Solutions, a home care agency that has served the Lehigh Valley since 1990.
