Our Home Care Services Team

Barney and Eileen Freiberg-Dale - Directors Barney and Eileen Freiberg-Dale - Directors

Barney and Eileen Freiberg-Dale have been active in Massachusetts and Newton community affairs for many years. Those who know us well are already aware of what we bring to the field of elder care.

Barney has been a master’s level rehabilitation counselor and administrator since 1978. He was Executive Director of a comprehensive Easter Seal rehabilitation facility for three years, during which time he established an adult day health center for seniors. His work has included services to people of all ages and with all nature of physical, mental and emotional disabilities, in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors.

Eileen has been a clinical social worker in the Boston area since 1967, working with clients of all ages in her private therapeutic practice and in several non-profit agencies. For 20 years she served on the faculty at Simmons College School of Social Work, where she taught and coordinated field placements for graduate students. In that capacity, she became intimately familiar with agencies, hospitals and other human service organizations throughout Eastern Massachusetts. Until recently, she provided psycho-therapy in a private practice.  As an LICSW, Eileen is the on-staff social work consultant for challenging situations that any of our team may encounter.

One of the benefits of our experience is that we are aware of the broad array of services available to help families deal with the challenges of caring for a loved one in the final years of life. Aside from providing non-medical and specialized dementia care to help seniors remain in their own homes, we can connect families as needed to an array of other helpful services: geriatric care managers, community service agencies, elder law attorneys, home-modification companies, financial planners, health-care professionals and adult day health-care programs, to name just a few.

Julie was promoted to Director of Client Services in December, 2016, after working as a case manager with us since 2011.  Though she still carries a caseload, she also is the direct supervisor of the other case managers noted below.  Prior to joining Visiting Angels, she most recently worked at Mystic Valley Elder Services as Case Management Supervisor, from 2002 – 2011, when she joined Visiting Angels. Prior to that, she spent seven years serving disabled individuals as a rehabilitation counselor in various organizations in both Massachusetts and Virginia. Julie’s many years of dealing with the concerns of disabled and elderly individuals has provided her with great background for helping families navigate the difficult decisions in caring for aging relatives.

She brings a holistic orientation and a variety of skills to her work with a purpose of enhancing our clients' quality of life and help maintain their independence. Her insights into family dynamics and ways to maximize the effectiveness of support from family and friends makes her especially effective in handling the many complex issues that arise in elder home care.

Kudos From Our Clients

"They have caring people. They do what they say they will.  First of all, they cared for my father at his home. They were very flexible and worked with my sister. They were also flexible and able to take care of my mother at a nursing home. They gave us the same caregiver who helped my father who worked well with him."  ~Frank H. in Newton, MA

"The caregiver and I are a match made in heaven. She just seems to know exactly what I need without even asking me. I haven't had any problems because Visiting Angels is so efficient. The impact that Visiting Angels has had on my quality of life is tremendous. Visiting Angels does exactly what I wanted. There are things that they do that I didn't even know I wanted!
