About Dr. El

Eleanor Feldman Barbera, PhD  (Dr. El)

Dr. El, author of The Savvy Resident’s Guide, is a licensed psychologist who works with long-term care residents and their families to bring dignity and humanity to their shared experience. She has been in the mental health field since she was 19 years old and for the past 20 years she’s specialized in long-term care.

She frequently lectures on subjects related to psychology, aging and nursing homes.
