Fearrington Cares Services While We’re Closed 2020-11-20T20:22:20-05:00

Our staff is 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.

Living With Loss Around the Holidays is a Support Group for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one-spouse, parent, child, family member, or friend. The “holidays”–November through the end of the year—are often painful, filled with memories of loved ones no longer alive, no longer with us in remembered, happy ways.

Meeting twice in the month of November (12 and 19) and twice in December (10 and 17), 1:00 pm on Zoom all are welcome to this group hosted by Judyth and John Branson. Residents of Fearrington since 2012, Judyth is a psychotherapist and John is a retired Episcopal priest.

This is a group in which we talk about feelings; grief, aloneness, emptiness, fear of the future and doubts about ourselves as well as a chance to speak of our loved ones and all that is good. No expectations; simply a chance to meet and talk in the safety of the group. Confidentiality is always maintained. All are welcome to one or more sessions.

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!
