Barbara Green, MSW

Barbara provides Care Consultations to families and individuals who have questions and concerns about the changes that occur as adults grow older. Please visit the Care Consultations page for further information.

I participated in Barbara’s Roundtable Discussions for many years.  It is her special genius that she was able to bring together committed experts in the field of aging, investigate and disseminate literature on pertinent topics and then facilitate a monthly in-depth discussion using the literature as a jumping off point.  The readings kept me current in the field; the conversations enhanced my ability to do my work and the relationships that she fostered help create a community within the field of aging.
