Meet Our Home Care Team

Andrea S

Andrea Sussman, MSW, Owner & Executive Director

Andrea is a licensed social worker with extensive experience in the senior health care field. Her previous positions include Director of the Special Care Unit at Waterview Nursing and Rehab Center, and Director of the Geriatric Care Coordination Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Ms. Sussman received her Master's Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Gerontology from New York University.

Andrea founded the Morris County office of Home Instead in April of 2000. Through her work experiences, she saw the huge need for seniors to secure services such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders and safety supervision so that they could remain independent in their own homes. Once Andrea learned about the franchise opportunity with Home Instead, she was off and running in building her business.

Andrea​ is a hands-on owner who brings her rich knowledge of senior care issues, together with her compassionate approach to business, to the office each day. Her strong and dedicated leadership results in the wonderful customer experience that our clients have enjoyed for over 20 years.

Andrea co-owns and directs Home Instead of Morris County with her husband, Steve Sussman. Together they raised their four children, who are all now adults. They enjoy family time as well as reading, boating, going to live music concerts, and relaxing on the beach.

Steve is an enthusiastic and committed franchise owner who is always eager to provide solutions to our clients, their families and prospective clients as well. He works hard every day to keep Home Instead as the leader in senior home care services in Morris County.
