"Generations Joined"​

Providing Assistance and Support to

Seniors and their families, friends and caregivers and information to our community

Our community, Fallon within Churchill County, is home to more than 7,500 individuals aged 55 and above. This number will continue to increase as our Baby Boomer generation retires and becomes seniors. These are our parents, grandparents, family, friends, and neighbors.

Aging is not selective; it reaches out to every one of us, regardless of gender, race, and creed. It also brings new challenges that need to be addressed. This is where William N. Pennington Life Center/Coalition for Senior Citizens becomes an important player in our community.

Who We Are and What We Do

Since opening our doors on June 19, 2017, the William N. Pennington Life Center has incorporated and embraced a multi-generational program planning aspect. The long standing focus has and will cont​inue to be our ever growing senior population. But, we strive to be attentive to all ages while nurturing the wisdom from our seniors to be shared with the upcoming youth as they become responsible young adults and our future leaders.    This can be done in many ways.  Everyone has so much to offer.

We offer a daily congregate lunch meal in our beautiful dining room and invite anyone who would like to join us. We are told that the food is "always really good". And you don't have to be a Senior Citizen to eat here either. If you are under 60 you will charged $6.00 and if you are over age 60 its a suggested donation of $3.00. We proudly receive subsidy from our grantor, State of Nevada Aging Disability Services Division (ADSD).

MAY IS "OLDER AMERICANS MONTH! WE WANT TO HELP CELEBRATE WITH YOU BY ENCOURAGING YOU TO 

"ENGAGE AT EVERY AGE".

When Older Americans Month was established in 1963, only 17 million living Americans had reached their 65th birthday. About a third of older Americans lived in poverty and there were few programs to meet their needs. A meeting in 1963 between President John F. Kennedy and members of the National Council of Senior Citizens led to designating May as “Senior Citizens Month,” the prelude to “Older Americans Month.”
