Savannah Couple Excited to Offer Senior House Care Service with New TruBlue Franchise
Marshall and Rachel Brewer understand the challenges of caring for aging loved ones, especially when you’re trying to make sure the house itself is safe and maintained. Now they’re looking forward to helping seniors throughout the Central Savannah River Area age safely in place with the help of the services available through their new business –TruBlue Total House Care of Augusta.
“When our parents lived with us, we took great care to make sure our homes were safe, but now that we’re Senior Home Safety Assessment Certified, we realize there are things we hadn’t even considered, like swapping door handles or getting rid of area rugs. Most seniors want to stay in their homes for as long as possible and, with some relatively minor adjustments and regular maintenance, it's more feasible than ever,” Rachel said.
While TruBlue offers individual handyman repairs, cleaning services, yard work, seasonal services and minor home renovations, the Brewers are most excited about TruBlue’s suite of senior-focused services, including the ability to do Senior Home Safety Assessments, make age-friendly renovations and offer House Care Plus, a regular service program that can help seniors enjoy the comforts and convenience of owning a home without worrying about the maintenance hassles.
“As we’ve launched this business, we’ve truly enjoyed being able to help older folks. Sure, sometimes you need a bathroom remodeled, but we had a client call because they needed someone to hang curtains. We are here and no job is too small,” Marshall added.
Marshall retired from Austin Industrial after 43 years. Rachel retired from Aiken Augusta Oral Surgery after 19 years. While the two retired from their first careers, they weren’t quite ready to call it quits. Learn more about their encore career and the ways they’re looking forward to serving seniors online.
