Barbara Farrell, RN
Geriatric Care Manager
Barbara always knew she wanted to become a Registered Nurse. As a senior in high school, Barbara went to evening classes to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). This allowed her the opportunity to work as a CNA in a local Skilled Nursing Facility while she attended nursing school. Barbara loved working with geriatric patients and spent several years caring for them. As a Registered Nurse, Barbara had a wonderful opportunity to work in Case Management with complex pediatric patients. Barbara was quickly appointed Director of Case Management and Patient Access, ensuring the department of Nurse Care Managers provided high quality and empathetic care. In 2017, Barbara relocated to Atlanta where she accepted the position of Director, Care Coordination for a prestige academic medical center. Barbara was entrusted to lead a team of Social Workers and Nurse Case Managers who serve our most vulnerable geriatric patients, ensuring effective transitions of care, care coordination, and high-quality outcomes.
Barbara's true passion is navigating complex situations while keeping the client and family at the heart of it all. She loves having the ability to connect with clients and families, and build strong trusting relationships. Barbara's soft and gentle approach paired with her innate ability to problem solve and take action is what sets her apart. Her many years of experience working in Care Management coupled with her knowledge and passion for seniors and the aging process has made her a great match for the countless lives she has been able to touch along her journey.
Barbara was born and raised in East Hampton, CT. While she is a CT native, she is enjoying her life in the south with her husband, Mark and their two daughters, Mackenzie and Madison. Barbara loves the beach, to travel, and to spend time with her family!
