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 Senior Care 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 Senior Care, she was off and running in building her business! Andrea and her husband Steve opened the Passaic County office of Home Instead Senior Care in 2007 after realizing the huge need for services for seniors in that area as well.
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 the past 20 years.
Andrea co-owns and directs Home Instead Senior Care of Morris & Passaic Counties with her husband, Steve Sussman. Together they raise their four children who range in age from teenagers to 20-somethings . They enjoy family time as well as reading, boating, going to live music concerts, and relaxing on the beach.
