    Tyler Pittenger

    We all have a punch list of home maintenance projects and, no matter how much you get done, there always seems to be more to do. I’m Tyler Pittenger, the local owner, and operator of TruBlue Total House Care of Lakewood, and I want to help. My dependable, high-quality team does handyman repairs, yard work, seasonal services, and minor home renovations. We also work with homeowners, realtors, and rental property owners who need to get homes move-in ready quickly and keep them maintained as well as business clients. There are a lot of active families in our community and, especially if your children play sports, you do a lot of traveling on the weekends. Between work, school, sports, traveling, and just wanting to spend time together, finding the time to take care of house projects gets tough. If you’re valuing your time, it’s easy to see how TruBlue can make a difference. We can come in, knock out those punch list items and let you get back to doing the things you enjoy. Additionally, TruBlue offers a suite of family-friendly and senior-focused services, including the ability to do Senior Home Safety Assessments and make age-friendly renovations. Our monthly/quarterly program, House Care Plus, can help seniors and busy families enjoy the comforts and convenience of owning a home without worrying about the maintenance hassles. I grew up in rural northeast Montana and, like many small towns, our seniors were always at the center of our lives. Having spent time with a lot of older people, I have huge respect for their journeys and I understand the challenges they face. My grandmother will be 90 and, while she’s still active and spry, I know TruBlue could make a difference for her, both in the regular maintenance of her home and taking on projects to make it safer and more liveable along the way. At our core, we want to help people love their homes and get their weekends back with our one-call-does-it all handyman, cleaning, and house care management services. We are a locally owned and operated company with the support and systems of a national company. Our team works through Lakewood the surrounding areas. We are looking forward to helping you with your next project!

TruBlue Total House Care forms partnership with Comfort Keepers is an in-home care company that gives seniors and adults the ability to continue to live independently, regardless of any chronic conditions, mobility limitations or any other age related limiters. Comfort Keepers has over 650 locations that operate in 12 different countries providing service to those in need with the goal of providing their clients with the highest quality of life that is achievable. Through this partnership, TruBlue has become the preferred provider of handyman services and senior home modifications for Comfort Keepers Nationwide. Just like TruBlue, Comfort Keepers franchisees are also independently owned and operated. This allows the two companies' franchisee owners to network in their markets and create a strong referral partnership together. “The booming senior care industry faces many challenges centered around ensuring the home is safe and well-maintained,” said Fitzgerald. “Senior care companies provide a much-needed service, but it is focused on the individual, and they understand that we provide an equally-needed service focused on the home environment. Now, as we continue to grow, our alliance with Comfort Keepers will help educate families and seniors on how to age in place successfully, especially as both companies become a greater advocate for aging seniors.” Read about the full partnership here: TruBlue Total House Care Announces Strategic Partnership with Comfort Keepers to Help Seniors Age in Place Safely
Carmen Hendricks, Owner of TruBlue of Vienna stands with three of her TruPro Handymen.
TruBlue Total House Care’s mission of becoming America’s most trusted and respected handyman company is something other handyman companies can’t relate to.   Most handymen companies have earned a reputation for unprofessionalism, leaving the client’s job site dirty, showing up late, or even not at all. Most of these handymen are usually treated as disposable, which is the opposite of what we try to provide here at TruBlue.  TruBlue goes above and beyond with our handyman care and produces owners and employees that truly foster a sense of belonging on the job site and in the company. 1. One of the key differences that helps put us above the “chuck-in-a-truck” handyman companies is that we pride ourselves on having professional and highly qualified handymen there for you when you need them most.  TruBlue’s handymen are not the average handymen that you call in back of your local phonebook, our handymen are held to a much higher standard than any other handyman.  We make sure they are background checked, bonded, and insured, and provide our customers with a level of professionalism that only TruBlue can provide. 2. Another one of the great reasons to choose TruBlue is our dedication to the senior market and serving them as best as possible.  TruBlue is partnered with many large brands in the senior home care industry such as, Right at Home, The Helper Bees, Honor, Comfort Keepers and Senior Home Services, other brands highly dedicated to senior home care and the overall well-being of seniors.  These alliances help show the passion that we have for making sure our clients, especially those looking to age-in-place have someone truly dedicated to them. 3. At TruBlue we aim to make our employees feel just as welcomed at work as they make our clients feel at each of our different jobs. TruBlue sets a higher standard in work culture that each of our locations to go about instilling.  A positive work culture is something almost all handyman businesses never come close to, creating an incredibly negative work environment.  With a good work culture we can ensure employee morale stays high and creates the perfect environment for everyone at TruBlue to do their absolute best.  This also creates the sort of family type atmosphere that helps make TruBlue’s TruPro handymen a step above all the others. 4. Lastly, choosing TruBlue means you can have first hand access to our monthly or quarterly handyman subscription service, House Care Plus, the fully tailored full service house care model that allows you to pick out chores and things you need done on a repeat basis.  This service offers our customers an efficient, affordable way of making sure that their household tasks, to-do list chores, and monthly maintenance don’t get left undone. Overall, TruBlue has so much to offer, and we truly pride ourselves in the many different ways we set ourselves apart from your average “chuck-in-a-truck”, no matter if that is done by our dedication to being your total house care manager or being your one-stop shop for senior home modifications.
TruBlue Total House Care Announces Carrie Coumbs as New Senior Strategic Advisor
The senior care veteran, whose career mission has been about trying to perfect the space of aging, brings over two decades of experience in all areas of the industry, from elder law to home health. TruBlue Total House Care, the franchise that provides subscription-based home maintenance and handyman services for seniors and families, looks to become an integral part of helping people live in worry-free homes. Now, with the senior population growing and the demand for home services skyrocketing post-COVID, TruBlue Total House Care is continuing to recruit qualified professionals onto the leadership team to help steer the brand in the right direction. The most recent addition, in a consultative role, is Carrie Coumbs, TruBlue’s new Senior Strategic Advisor. Coumbs brings an extensive and impressive background in the senior care space. For the last two decades, she has been a specialist in all areas of aging, working for some of the largest organizations within the senior care continuum. “My entire career has really been about trying to perfect the space of aging,” said Coumbs. “It is through that mission that I started to embrace connections with peripheral market supporters, whether it be rideshare companies, meal companies or, in the case of TruBlue, handyman companies. As a strategist in aging, it isn’t about what I can do, but about how I can make connections within the industry to better serve seniors.” Within the past year, Coumbs was able to connect TruBlue with The Helper Bees, bringing forth another strategic partnership in the Medicare Advantage space. That connection stuck with the TruBlue leadership and made Coumbs a “first call” when looking to add to the growth strategy ahead. “Sean Fitzgerald, the founder of TruBlue, reached out to me and asked if I knew anyone who would be interested in helping make the TruBlue brand more integral to the space of aging,” said Coumbs. “I said, ‘yes, tell me more, this really intrigues me personally.’” Right away, Coumbs says she could tell TruBlue was on the cutting-edge of an important change in the senior care industry. “The idea of home modification is not new; it is just new to aging,” she said. “It has been around for decades — childproofing the home, for example. When you are expecting a new child, you go through your home and try to make it a safer place for that child's development. Now, we are flipping it on its head and saying: how about all those aging seniors who need a safe and comfortable space? That is where TruBlue shines, as an opportunity not only for the franchisee that looks to serve this amazing generation but also an answer to all of the seniors worried about what is next for them.” Coumbs officially joined the TruBlue team as a Senior Strategic Advisor, in a consultative role, in July 2022 and says, moving forward, her mission with the company is three-tiered. “First, the majority of my skill-set is within post-acute care strategy and collaboration, engaging in new partnerships with senior care industry providers,” said Coumbs. “There are several providers that would benefit from partnering with TruBlue. TruBlue has been partnering with several senior care providers recently, and I want to continue that momentum, as well as bring forth new opportunities in the payer space, within seniors housing and much more.” Second, Coumbs says she hopes to ultimately support the TruBlue franchisees in areas that may have been obstacles previously. “From the very core, I too am an entrepreneur — I love the idea of franchise owners being in business for themselves while in the service of others,” she said. “Additionally, to have that entrepreneurial spirit wrapped around the space of aging just brings a smile to my face.” Lastly, Coumbs says she hopes to develop a better understanding of TruBlue’s core clientele and collect data that supports the plan for aging in place. “The beauty of TruBlue is that it recognizes that the senior has a vision for what they want: improving the home and making it supportive to aging in place, ultimately allowing for a better living experience.” Now, as awareness around the importance of aging in place continues to increase, TruBlue is set for massive growth. Since the start of 2022, TruBlue has added 10 new franchise locations, keeping the brand on pace to reach its goal of 100-plus locations by year’s end. Coumbs says she is excited to support the team and will help with additional expansion in every way possible. “I saw that TruBlue recently signed a franchise owner in the Gig Harbor, Washington market, which is where I have aging family members,” said Coumbs. “I can’t wait to put them to work for my family. As a busy professional in the space of aging, it is so great to know that they are just a phone call away and that my loved ones will be taken care of. If there are entrepreneurs on the fence, I would say: this is one of the most important franchise growth decisions out there right now. This is going to change the landscape of aging as we embrace seniors in their existing homes and help them stay there longer. I am excited to see what the future holds.” The initial investment to start a TruBlue Total House Care ranges from $65,000 to $91,000, and interested owners can visit www.trubluefranchise.com to learn more about franchise opportunities.
