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.

Current Program Description: You may never be Tommy John or even get that reference (according to Casey Stengel, you could look it up). Of course these days you could Google Tommy John and Casey Stengel. In any case, arms and shoulders can be sources of aches and pains for athletes and pseudo-athletes. The Zoom Education Committee is happy to host a presentation by Dr. Louis Almekinders, an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in shoulder disorders. This program will cover common issues such as rotator cuff and biceps tendon problems, shoulder arthritis, and frozen shoulder. Dr. Almekinders will include common symptoms and basic initial treatment as well as some discussion of surgical treatment.

Dr. Almekinders is a native of the Netherlands who completed a residency in Orthopaedic Surgery and a research fellowship at Duke University Medical Center. In 1989 he joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In the ensuing 14 years, he worked as a team physician for the varsity athletic teams and became a tenured, full professor. In 2003 he moved back to Duke University to start the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic and is currently a professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

Program Description:

This program will introduce SKY (Sudarshan Kriya Yoga) Breath Meditation, a set of breathing techniques that can help foster serenity. Every emotion has a specific breathing pattern, so learning to focus on and control the breath can help us manage our mind and emotions. The rhythmic breathing patterns of SKY Breath Meditation can lead the practitioner toward a state of deep meditative relaxation; reducing anxiety, anger, insomnia, and depression. 

Lee Farrow, based in Mountain View, CA, and the daughter of a Fearrington resident, will lead the program. She will offer demonstration and coaching as well as findings from scientific research related to the technique’s effectiveness. Lee became a certified instructor for The Art of Living Foundation in 1997. She currently supports caregivers, military families, and her local community by teaching meditation and SKY Breathing for Kaiser Permanente and Project Welcome Home Troops.
