Galloway Ridge in Fearrington is a life plan community that encompasses all that senior living should be. Our approach to senior care is different here. We are where southern hospitality meets cosmopolitan culture.

Our prime location in the North Carolina Triangle offers our residents plenty to explore in this growing art, music, and culinary scene. Located just down the road from Chapel Hill, Galloway Ridge offers our residents the perfect blend of small-town charm and urbane culture, with world-class healthcare, top-notch amenities, inspiring programs, and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Galloway Ridge won the 2019 ICAA NuStep Beacon Award, which recognizes and honors the Top 25 ‘Best in Wellness’ senior-living communities in North America. Galloway Ridge is among those recognized as best-in-class for successfully fostering a wellness-centered environment to benefit all who live and work in their community. The award was created as a joint effort between the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) and NuStep, LLC, a major manufacturer of recumbent cross-trainers used in healthcare, senior-living, and fitness.


At this luxury senior living community, you will never be short of things to do! To enrich everyone’s lifestyle, our talented and hard-working Resident Enrichment team puts together an extraordinary program of events for you to participate in, should you desire. All our activities cover the eight dimensions of wellness, to help you achieve a stimulating and well-balanced lifestyle. Get ready to have a wonderful time!

There are trips to the symphony available — or chamber music, if that’s more your style. There are evening outings to wonderful local restaurants and museums, fun shopping trips to local malls, and world class theaters with Broadway musicals, concert performances and ballet to delight you. You can even explore the night sky at the Chapel Hill Planetarium! If you prefer to stay home, we have enough in-house events to fill every day of your week.

You can take a computer class, a history lecture, hear a travelogue from one of our fascinating, well-traveled residents or join one of our several book clubs. If none of that sounds interesting, maybe you’d like to learn all about wine, take in a movie at our very own 49 seat cinema, or learn to make some beautiful jewelry. There are photography classes, a comedy open-mic night, karaoke night, or lessons in Chinese calligraphy. Maybe an outing to a Durham Bulls baseball game? We also have plenty of spiritual offerings, including worship and thoughtful, lively discussions in which to participate.

A truly life-changing

We know how important it is to have friendly faces greeting you at the door or smiling nurses who provide exemplary care for your loved ones.
