Our staff will be able to check messages and make calls remotely using the Fearrington Cares number, 919-542-6877. Don’t hesitate to phone. 

While the Fearrington Cares Center continues to be closed until it is safe again to reopen, as long as we have volunteer drivers available, Fearrington Cares will pick up groceries that you order (and pay for) online. We will not go to a resident’s home, pick up cash or credit cards and shop for residents – the service is limited to picking up prepaid orders from Harris Teeter, Lowe’s or Walmart. Request this service using our transportation extension on our voice mail after you have information about a pickup time (no same day or next day delivery service.)

If you wish to speak with Karen Metzguer, our Executive Director and Nurse,  or need to borrow a piece of equipment, leave a message in our general voicemail box and someone will deliver the equipment to you.  If you have borrowed a piece of equipment, please hold onto it until we re-open and do not leave equipment outside our door.


If you would like to practice a zoom connection in a Zoom meeting, email info@fearringtoncares.org and we will set this up for you.

4.  Thursday, August 13, 2020 | 7:00 pm via Zoom | “A Good Night: Sleep Strategies for Older Adults In These Difficult Times” 

Program Description: Sleep patterns change as we get older, but nighttime sleep problems and daytime sleepiness (or fatigue) are not part of the normal aging process. Meg Danforth, Ph.D., Certified Behavioral Sleep Medicine Specialist, returns to Fearrington to provide strategies for getting a good night’s sleep, identify the common causes of sleep problems in older adults, and discuss resources for treating sleep disorders. Dr. Danforth is a clinician and educator at Duke University Medical Center. As the Director of the Duke Behavioral Sleep Medicine Clinic, she has been helping sleep better without medication for the past 18 years. She’ll also share techniques for quieting an active mind, which can keep you up, burning the midnight oil. Are sleeping pills the solution? Dr. Danforth’s answer may surprise you!
