About Barbara

A life-long resident of Morris County, New Jersey, Barbara spent more than 25 years as a solution sales professional providing software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based workforce management solutions to mid-sized companies, prior to joining A Place for Mom. She also worked in the publishing industry selling print and internet advertising. These backgrounds have equipped her with the transferrable skills of conducting thorough consultative needs analyses; partnering and providing solutions that meet the needs and provide value to the client. Her personal experience with helping to secure quality memory care within her family has given her a passion, and compassion, to help families do the same for their loved ones.

What I'm passionate about:

She is passionate about her family, her faith, movies (she should have been a movie critic), walking, fresh cut flowers and ensuring that people have the information and resources they need to make sound decisions that meet their needs.

A Note From Barbara

“Before joining the senior living industry, and the existence of A Place for Mom, I personally experienced the challenges and heartbreak of watching my beloved grandmother progress through all stages of Alzheimer’s disease. How I wish we had had, such a valuable partner as A Place for Mom to anchor us and help us navigate the sea of senior care options. Joining A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisor team is an honor and privilege I humbly accept in loving memory of my 'Nana.'”

Reviews and Testimonials

"Barbara Farrington was excellent! I can’t tell you how helpful she was. She would send me emails of families stories, that were really nice to see it’s difficult for everyone not just us. She was so patient, and she helped me look not only in NY where we moved, but also helped me compare what was in IL where I live as well. She was fabulous!"
