Our Administrative Team

Patricia Kiely

Patricia Kiely, Director and Gerontologist

I hold a Masters degree in Gerontology from University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford CT and a BA from University of Connecticut. After an over twenty year banking career, in both lending and management, I decided to embark in a second career in older adult advocacy. My job search brought me to JFS Care at Home, where I have been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to take a vital position in growing our home care agency to the quality and caring program we offer today. With the support of our Care at Home team, I find tremendous joy and satisfaction in helping older adults and their families.

Susan Byars

Scheduling Coordinator

Before I joined JFS Care at Home, for ten years I had owned and operated a business focusing on identifying and developing staff to work with pre-school children. I felt very passionate about finding the best possible match. A few years ago my elderly mother became ill and I quickly became an advocate for her which included finding quality home care. With this experience I found a new passion, working with seniors! My position at JFS Care at Home gives me the opportunity to help provide experienced and caring caregivers, who contribute to our client’s quality of life.
