Memory Support Care
Galilee House is a peaceful, secure and supportive setting for people living with dementia.
The environment mirrors a “household” that provides a peaceful, secure and supportive setting for people living with dementia. Specialized dementia caregivers in the household are trained and experienced using a Montessori approach to providing care. This approach includes cognitive exercises, life skills and movement, sensory, music, art and socialization activities that focus on each person’s needs, interests and abilities.
The Montessori approach to providing care, together with around-the-clock medical support has earned Morningstar Living’s dementia program the “Dementia Care Program of Distinction” from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

Memory Lane at Moravian Hall Square
Morningstar Living’s Memory Lane Program provides education, information and resources to people throughout the Lehigh Valley community who are caregivers for others affected by dementia.
Information, resources, techniques and strategies for caregivers are provided at every quarterly forum. This program has also been valuable for medical professionals such as RNs, CNAs, LPNs, Social Workers and Certified Care Managers.
Morningstar Living’s Support Groups provide guidance and instruction to small groups of caregivers. Support Groups offer a way to share challenges, exchange ideas and create strategies with other caregivers in similar situations.
Our professional group facilitators are trained by the Alzheimer’s Association. These small group meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with two-time options: 9:30 AM or 6 PM. The meetings are held in Galilee House at Moravian Hall Square located at 175 W. North Street, Nazareth, PA 18064.
