Peni...ck Memorial Home. In October 2015, after Board approval, the corporation filed Amended Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws with the North Carolina Secretary of State to change the name to Penick Village, Inc. Penick Village continues to operate successfully to the present time as a community for senior adults on the life plan community concept. This concept recognizes and addresses the needs of each resident along a continuum from initial entry to and through each increasing health related need for his/her entire life. As a faith based ministry with deep Episcopal roots, it is a vibrant and caring community for older adults which values and encourages the individuality and contribution of each resident.
