Owner & President, Sharon Muenster
Sharon received a BS degree in Business Administration and began working in banking and various financial institutions before opening her first home care agency in 2002. After living through watching her mother take care of her grandmother and great aunt, in her home, with the help of a caregiver, Sharon saw the need for this service. She researched all the options available to people and then decided to open her own company so she could not only provide caregivers to families but also be a resource for families in the same situation her family was in.
Upon starting Key Home Care, Sharon fully immersed herself in the Senior Community, in her home town of Metuchen, NJ. She became the President of the Senior Commission and President of Metuchen Seniors Inc. in 2016. She was also on the Accessibility Commission for 2 years and a member of the Metuchen Chamber of Commerce, until it closed in 2021. At this current time, Sharon is President of Metuchen Seniors Inc., which is the fund raising side of the Metuchen Senior Center.
Sharon grew up in Perth Amboy, NJ with her parents, two sisters and one brother, and moved to Metuchen in 1999.
Sharon has learned a lot about the needs of seniors and their families. Everyone's situation is unique and needs to be handled individually. Sharon likes to get to know her clients by communicating with them and finding out what would make their difficult situation a little more pleasant.
In her free time, Sharon has two children that keep her busy and enjoys playing tennis whenever she can.

Why Choose Key Home Care?
We think of your family as though they were our family. We are an independently owned company, not a franchise. So we feel that there is more of a personal feeling you get with our services. We pride ourselves in acting quickly when someone needs help right away.
Our 20 years of experience has taught us a lot about what works well for families and has given us the knowledge to make suggestions that you may not have thought of. We offer affordable rates and flexible schedules. All of our aides are our employees and have background checks, reference checks and are insured and bonded. We try to send you an aide that is the right fit for your loved one. If for some reason it is not, then we find out why and either work with the aide to make it right or get you a new aide. You are never obligated to keep someone you are not happy with.
We are more than just a Home Care Agency. We are a resource of information, whether it be for other services available or products you may need or maybe how to handle a situation with your loved one. We can either help you or steer you in the right direction. We all want the same outcome and that is for your loved one to be as happy and safe as possible, while living with dignity.
If you have Long Term Care Insurance, we will handle all the paperwork in the billing process so that you do not have to do anything.
