Meet TruBlue of Southern Wisconsin
Owner Bio: Susan and Jeff Vandegenachte
For most of us, our homes are our largest investment and taking proper care of them can often cut into the time we’d rather be spending with family or doing other fun things. With TruBlue, you can make one call for all of your house care needs. I’m Susan Vandegenachte and I own this business with my husband, Jeff. We live in Elkhorn. Whether you need maid services, handyman help or you have a special project in mind, we can help.
At TruBlue, we offer handyman services, maid and cleaning services, lawn care, emergency repairs, seasonal projects, a home watch program, a senior accessibility program and more. TruBlue is a great option for busy families and seniors who want the comforts of home without worrying about property maintenance as well as homeowners, realtors and rental property owners who need to quickly get homes move-in ready and keep them maintained. We also offer commercial services for business clients.
At TruBlue of Southern WI, we serve people in Big Bend, Mukwonago, Dousman, Eagle, North Prairie, Genesee Depot, Wales, Waukesha, East Troy, Elkhorn, Williams Bay, Fontana, Lake Geneva, Muskego, Wind Lake and the surrounding communities.
I owned a Merry Maids franchise for about 10 years and Jeff has a varied background that has often included working with contractors and building materials. We’d been looking for the right business opportunity for almost five years when we came across TruBlue. We liked that this business allows us to use our backgrounds while making a positive impact on people in our community.
To assist those with ongoing home care needs or who want to take property management off their plates entirely, TruBlue recently rolled out a monthly house care program, which enables our clients to contract with us for regular property maintenance, including seasonally appropriate inspection items, maid services, lawn care and more. While these services are great for anyone, they are especially helpful for seniors who want to age in place in a safe and comfortable home as well as busy families and those caring for older family members. This is a service we are especially excited to offer.
I used to work at a nursing home and I really loved it. We had a rehabilitation center and, I always wondered about the help people had at home after they left our facility. Sure, you can hire a home health agency to help with your physical recovery, but what about getting your home ready and maintaining it? With TruBlue, we can handle everything from building a ramp and putting in hahandrailso the regular maintenance like lawn care, cleaning and handyman repairs. Our services aren’t just for seniors, but I’m especially looking forward to working with seniors and families to help older adults age safely in place.
I am a lifelong resident of Southern Wisconsin and Jeff has lived in the area for about 13 years. Not only do we enjoy volunteering at Lakeland Animal Shelter in Elkhorn, but we are active bowlers and especially enjoy bowling in fundraisers for all sorts of causes. We have four children – Lisa (and Scott), David (and Beth), Kailyn (and Eddie) and Matthew – as well as two grandchildren, Brayden and Kenzie.
