Sloane Wendell grew up in the Texas Hill Country and graduated from Texas A&M University. Sloane, provided home care for her grandmother. It came to a point that she and her husband could no longer take care of her in their house, they never thought to have an outside provider come into their house as they didn’t know such options existed, had they, this would have been the choose path they would have taken with Sloane’s grandmother. It broke Sloane’s heart and her spirit to not be able to take care of her grandmother in her end days. Fast forward several years and Sloane and her husband, Jim, were faced with with end of life family care again as they managed Jim’s mom’s fight with colon cancer. This situation was even more difficult than Sloane’s grandmother as Jim’s mom lived 8 hours away and she was adamant that she “stay” in her home.
Through these two very personal experiences, a passion was planted in Sloane’s heart to want to help other families so that they would not have to go through the same pain and suffering. The demands of caring for aging parents and loved ones is extreme. Sloane’s experiences, have allowed her to witness the longevity of health as well as happiness that staying at home brings to individuals. Sloane’s desire to help families care for loved ones, led her to owning Right at Home San Antonio. She wants to share compassion, comfort and love to those that need it in San Antonio. Her mission is to make a positive impact on the community with Right at Home.
