Two current scams — (1) Many people in the area are currently receiving phone calls with a live person on the other end claiming to be calling from Medicare asking if you have received your new Medicare ID card. The caller also asks for your Social Security. Be aware that Medicare NEVER places such calls to anyone. It is a SCAM. Just hang up without engaging in ANY sort of conversation; do not try to engage the caller in by challenging what you are told.  (2) Also, a recent Social Security phone scam makes you out to be the criminal. How to avoid falling for it. See the details here.
Two New Potential Support Groups Forming—(1) Currently, we are prepared to begin an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) group. Any individuals interested in participating in a weekly group here in Fearrington should call the Center (919-542-6877, no name required) so we can determine our next steps. It is our policy that none of our support groups record attendee’s names. (2) Also, LGBTQ Allies. There are many issues facing the LGBTQ community, especially right here in North Carolina. If a number of individuals are interested, Fearrington Cares will provide a regular opportunity to meet. For more information, email Vicky or Rhoda.
Volunteers Always Needed and Welcome! Fearrington Cares can always use more volunteer drivers, handy people, computer jocks, and Fearrington Friends. If you have any interest in or questions about volunteering, please call the Center (919-542-6877).
REMEMBER THAT FLU SHOT: Flu season is in full swing and it’s not too late to get a flu shot; many local options are available, including pharmacies and grocery stores. If you or someone you know is homebound due to medical or physical disabilities and would like to receive the vaccine, please contact Bonnie Dukeman, RN, at the Chatham County Public Health Department (919-742-5641).
Fearrington Cares volunteers are delivering dinner once a month to resident family caregivers and their partners in February, March, and April. Please call the Center (919-542-6877) to be added to the roster of “All-Star Caregivers” living in Fearrington.
