Meet Owners Troy Turner and Sandra Martinez-Turner
Right at Home Merrillville is owned by Troy and Sandra Turner. Troy & Sandra are both involved in the business and work tirelessly to maintain a wonderful team of caregivers and office staff.
Troy served in the U.S. Navy & U.S. Marine Corps for ten years which he followed with a career, leading marketing and sales teams. Some years ago, Troy lost his first wife, Stephanie, following an extended battle with cancer. Caring for Stephanie and her subsequent death, provided a unique perspective, which eventually led Troy to Sandra and them both to Right at Home. Troy learned the short-term and long-term challenges associated with being a caregiver, while also juggling a career and raising three teenagers. He also learned the importance of living life to its fullest. While caring for Stephanie, Troy relied on support from other family members and friends because at the time, he was unaware of home care agencies, like Right at Home. Troy understands the importance of the Right at Home mission because he lived it then and he lives it today. He brings the passion from his personal experiences to every aspect of caring for others.
Sandra spent her professional career with industry leading logistics and transportation companies. Like Troy, Sandra, brings outstanding professionalism and leadership skills, combined with her personal experience. Her professional and personal experiences fuel her passion for helping others. Sandra’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and she has witnessed her Mother’s cognitive skills and overall health decline. She’s seen the toll her Mother’s illness has taken on her Father and the entire family. The heartache of watching someone she loves declining is always present. While this is difficult, Sandra understands how valuable this time is. She wants to be able to help families be families and do some of the heavy lifting for them. Right at Home can do some of the hard work so families can take advantage of this precious time with their loved ones. She spends considerable time educating others about the challenges of managing through this debilitating disease. Compassionate care is something that comes naturally to Sandra, not only with her mother, but with every family and caregiver at Right at Home.
Troy & Sandra have four adult children, one grandchild and three playful dogs. They like to spend as much time as possible staying active outdoors and traveling across multiple states to visit family.
Troy & Sandra’s unique backgrounds have instilled core principles that they bring to work and every interaction:
- There is nothing more rewarding than caring for others
- Great service begins with great people and great teamwork
- Treat clients & caregivers with the same kindness and respect you desire
- Never stop working to make things better for clients, employees and their community
