TruBlue Total House Care, the professional full-service house care franchise, is excited to announce that the company has been recognized with Age Safe® America’s 100% Commitment Award. The award – which is the Age Safe America’s highest honor – salutes TruBlue’s franchise-wide commitment to obtain the Senior Home Safety Specialist™ certification.
As part of TruBlue’s commitment, all new franchisees will be required to complete the Age Safe America, Senior Home Safety Specialist training and certification as part of their onboarding training. Other TruBlue franchisees also will be encouraged to participate. With this certification and training, franchisees will not only be able to perform a comprehensive home safety assessment, but also be able complete the necessary modifications to ensure that homeowners remain safe and confident in their homes.
“We worked with Age Safe America to incorporate the Senior Home Safety Specialist certification into our franchisee training programs because we saw an opportunity for TruBlue to meet a major need. As people look to safely age in place – or even be allowed to return home after rehabilitation – they need not only someone to evaluate the safety of their home, but also complete any required work. By training our franchisees, we can meet that need, which is a benefit for our clients, our communities and our franchisees,” TruBlue President Sean Fitzgerald said.
The Senior Home Safety Specialist course empowers professionals with actionable ways to better help educate clients, older adults and their family members on the serious issues of home safety, fall prevention, crime prevention, financial exploitation and personal safety. TruBlue’s focus on seniors goes well beyond assessments – the company also offers House Care Plus, a regularly-scheduled maintenance program designed for older adults and busy families. With this program, clients can work with TruBlue to maintain all aspects of their home, including performing regular maintenance, making handyman repairs, making assessment modifications, performing lawn care, offering cleaning services and more. The one-call-does-it-all solution can help seniors age safely and comfortably in their own homes.
