"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.

Announcements

The William N. Pennington Life Center is thankful to announce we have been able to continue to serve our senior population daily meals through our Meals on Wheels program and the drive-up meal pick up Monday through Friday from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm. We have also had the ability to provide toilet paper, miscellaneous toiletries, food, distilled water, and pet food to our senior community who have been unable to leave their residence or locate these items at the store. To date, we have had the privilege of assisting over 125 seniors with these items and served over 1,000 meals through our drive – up program.  Local grocery stores, Walmart and Safeway, have implemented designated shopping days and times to accommodate the senior community as well.

Special Shopping Hours


Walmart:

From March 24 through April 28, Walmart stores will host an hour-long senior shopping event every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older. This will start one hour before the store opens (6:00 am – 7:00 am). Pharmacies and Vision Centers will also be open during this time.


Safeway:

Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 am - 9:00 am.


We would like to thank all of those who have donated to the William N. Pennington Life Center to assist our senior community. We will gratefully continue to accept donations to assist our seniors. Items desperately needed at this time include:

Water

Distilled water

Toilet paper

Anti-bacterial soap

Disinfectant wipes

Hand sanitizer

Cat food

Face tissue

Miscellaneous toiletries


Please help spread the word!

Remember...It is important that if you MUST leave your residence, maintain a distance from others of 6 feet or more and avoid crowds.  Wash your hands frequently and STAY HOME as much as possible.  If you do use our drive-up meal pick-up, stay in your vehicle and we will be utilizing masks and gloves when making minimal contact with you to hand you your meals.


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.”
