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."

Care Managers

You want to make the best decisions you can for the people you love. And making decisions about the health and well-being of people you love requires professional planning and advising. Care Managers at Senior Solutions are certified professionals that will identify, procure and manage all of the pieces that need to be put into place to have a Care Plan for your loved ones. A Senior Solutions Care Manager is your single point of contact and expert advisor in all of the following:

Health Care Navigation

Researching, accessing, and explaining available resources for utilization and reimbursement of health benefits and insurance.

Home Care Services

Determining the type and frequency of in-home services needed from Home Care Specialists to assist with activities of daily living.

Housing

Evaluating and selecting alternative residential living options if staying at home is not possible.

Entitlements

Providing information on Federal and state entitlements, and connecting families to local programs.

Medical Management

Attending doctor appointments with your loved one to ensure accurate communication between you and your loved one’s physicians.

Safety and Security

Assessing and monitoring the safety and security of a person in their home; and researching and recommending equipment and technologies to add safety and security measures.

Legal

Identifying and referring to attorneys for preparation of Durable Financial & Durable Medical Powers of Attorney.

Financial

Identifying and referring to money managers who assume responsibility for bill paying or consulting with your loved one’s Power of Attorney and Accountant.

Home Maintenance

Engaging the services of professionals for home repairs, outside maintenance and snow removal.

Social Activities

Planning recreational and cultural activities that enrich the quality of life.

Care Planning is a process that begins with an assessment of the home environment and the person living in the environment to identify the help and services your loved ones need to remain independent at home. And when it is no longer possible for someone you love to remain at home, your Care Manager will advise you on the facilities that will best meet their needs.

Certification Is Essential

Senior Solutions’ Care Managers are certified by the Aging Life Care Association™ (ALCA™). This means our Certified Care Managers have met the stringent education, training, experience, strict code of ethics and quality standards.

"We appreciate all you and your colleagues did to guide us through this most difficult time. You are a talented and skilled nurse, and we were lucky to have you on our side. Thank you for all you do."
