Fearrington Cares Services While We’re Closed 2020-09-25T11:12:02-04:00

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.

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. We are loaning durable medical equipment by appointment only, since the Center remains closed to walk-in visits. Call 919-542-6877 to make an appointment and wear a mask when you come to pick up or return equipment. We are hopeful that borrowed equipment that you are no longer using will be placed on our front porch with your name on it so we can check it back in to its new home!


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.

Program Description: Need a booster shot of well-being and connection? Join us each month this fall to gain fresh perspective and polish up a trove of down-to-earth tools to help build stress-resistance during these challenging times. Each hour-long Zoom session is led by Vicki Field as your “guide by the side,” and includes time for a brief lecture, self-reflection, fun exercises, and focused discussion. Handouts will be emailed to participants after each class. In September, we will define and discuss resilience and explore ways to increase it by building “stress hardiness,” squelching worry, rediscovering old strengths, finding inspiration, and practicing “productive floundering.” (Trust us—productive floundering is a real thing!)

10. Thursday, October 22, 1:30 pm via Zoom | Life in the Time of Corona at a CCRC

In the last six months, we have all heard the phrase, “unprecedented times” more than we can count; indeed, they have been. For even the best planners among us, the COVID-19 crisis has proven that we cannot plan for everything. Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) exist for people who meticulously plan for themselves, their futures, and their loved ones. So how does a CCRC serve those people during this unplanned circumstance? How has community leadership balanced resident safety with resident happiness? How have they continued to provide the exceptional service and security that residents have been promised? How are managers and staff protecting and supporting each other in this new and changing landscape? Alia Granger, Sales Counselor at The Forest at Duke, discusses some of the particular challenges of the CCRC during this time. Save the date. Login credentials will be posted closer to the program date.



An Additional Digital Resource — Free Virtual Concert

A Gift to the Community from the Fearrington Village Concert Association

The Fearrington Village Concert Association has commissioned a video concert by pianist Frederick Moyer and is making a gift of the concert to the Fearrington Community. Fred Moyer has appeared as piano soloist with most of the major orchestras of the United States, as well as many orchestras of Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia. He is well-known to Fearrington, having appeared many times in the Fearrington Concert Series and most recently in October 2019. The program moves from classical music to jazz and includes music by Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Sergi Rachmaninoff, and Oscar Peterson. It is an absolute delight and a welcome treat during this period. It is available on an ‘unlisted’ YouTube address. You can find the information to access this concert on the Fearrington Cares website under the Resources tab. To access directly, just click here, and enjoy!.

A very special THANK YOU to the Fearrington Village Concert Association for this gift to the community!
