Our Commitment to Seniors

Meet the Owner

  • TruBlue of Vienna owner Carmen Hendricks.

    Carmen Hendricks

    I’m Carmen Hendricks and my husband, Chad Akers, and I are the local owners of TruBlue of Vienna. Thank you for considering working with us! TruBlue of Vienna is a full-service house care business. We provide professional handyman services and a helping hand around the home, both inside and out. We can also help with home maintenance, improvements, and seasonal projects. Our services are perfect for busy families, seniors and anyone who want the comforts of their own home without worrying about critical property maintenance. Chad and I learned about TruBlue in our quest to find a franchise that helps seniors looking to age in place. We learned first-hand through helping my mother, who lives in a different state, how challenging it can be for seniors to keep up with home maintenance and repairs, which got us thinking… was there a better way? Trying to coordinate repairs from a distance or paying higher-than-market rate for repairs because we needed them done quickly while visiting was just not acceptable. There was definitely a need for a holistic, reasonably-priced approach to exterior and interior home maintenance that would help seniors stay in their homes longer. We also knew this type of service would be great for busy professionals like ourselves who want to spend less time working on their own homes and more time with family and friends. Chad and I often joke that we eat, live and breathe real estate. We have spent the bulk of our careers in the field and love it. I spent the first 20 years of my career in mortgage banking and the last five years as firm administrator of a local accounting firm, which just happened to be located upstairs from my husband’s real estate appraisal company. My husband has been a real estate appraiser for more than 20 years and specializes in new construction. What free time we have had in recent years has been spent working on our own fixer-upper home in Oakton. We are also the proud parents of a Border Collie mix, who admittedly has us wrapped around her finger – oops, paw! We both love this area, but have never felt like we’ve gotten to know the community or the people who live here, other than those we have met through work. We are excited that TruBlue gives us the opportunity to get more involved and put down roots. We want to be the neighbor you can trust with all of your house care needs. Contact us today and let’s talk about how TruBlue can help you get your weekends back!

Multilocation Comfort Keepers Owner Opens His First TruBlue!
Last year TruBlue became the Comfort Keepers preferred provider of handyman services and senior home modifications. This is a mutually beneficial partnership sharing one goal; to keep elderly adults out of assisted living facilities and keep them aging in their homes. Since the partnership launched there was one multi-location of Comfort Keepers who saw huge value in not only partnering with TruBlue, but owning a TruBlue himself. Vince Maffeo owns 10 Comfort Keepers in California and is adding his first TruBlue into the mix this year. “I knew it would be more beneficial to own a TruBlue location and more convenient for our clients,” said Maffeo. “Buying a TruBlue means that my Comfort Keepers locations won’t have to refer out the handyman and home services as we’ve done in the past. It’s now a one-stop shop. Comfort Keepers provides care for the individual, and TruBlue provides maintenance to the home.”
Durable Remodeling Projects to Reduce Maintenance
Maintenance is one of the most time-consuming parts of owning a home. Not only does it take up a lot of your weekends and evenings, but it can cost a lot of money to keep up with updating and correcting issues that pop up throughout the property. Fortunately, there are ways to cut down on how much maintenance your property needs! These are some of the most durable remodeling projects anyone should try, and why they matter! Updating Floors to Something Reliable Your floors are the part of your home that takes the most use, and yet many people overlook this update until it's too late. If your floor is old wood or cracked tile, you may spend a lot of time having to repair it, updating it, or keeping it safe when you should be able to rely on this part of your home to last. To get better flooring, consider updating to a more resilient flooring that can handle anything you can throw at it. This is especially important for rentals or properties that see a lot of wear and tear. Getting Gutters That Will Protect Your Home One of the largest projects many homeowners deal with every year is fighting against leaves falling on their property. The worst part is having to climb up a ladder to clear them or paying someone to remove all of the leaves from your roof. It can feel risky and takes up an incredible amount of time, yet it is necessary to protect your gutters. Thankfully, there is a way around this! Instead of having to climb up every couple of weeks, put in heavy-duty aluminum gutters with high-quality gutter guards. These will divert all water away from your home while also stopping themselves from being cluttered with leaves. Upgrading Your Siding Your siding decides how people describe your home, protects it from outdoor elements, and insulates, so you're able to stay comfortable inside: as long as it's in good condition. The average home's siding lasts for twenty to forty years, depending on the brand, materials, and where you are. If your siding is aging out, you could be seeing issues with temperature control. You can tell if the siding is too old by looking for signs like cracking, warping, or discoloration or if you notice that it's lifting away from your home. This might mean it's allowing moisture underneath it, which can quickly lead to mold and rot. Updating, even with manufactured stone panels, is to be completed as soon as you realize it's necessary, so make sure to keep an eye on your siding. Installing New Windows and Doors If any of your windows or doors are leaking air, you could be wasting tons of money every year on your heating and cooling bills. Leaky windows and doors can also add moisture to the air, allow insect life through, and are generally a giant nuisance. To test which parts of your property are leaking air, close all of your doors and windows, and walk near them with a lit candle. If the flame flickers when you pass any of these entrances, this means you have an air leak. You can seal a door and add weather stripping, but if you want increased security, replacing it entirely can be a great choice. If only one or two of your windows are leaking, it might be a better idea to seek out a partial window replacement rather than updating all of them to save a little money. This update can add a lot of value and curb appeal to your home! Giving Your Garage New Life Nobody wants their garage to be lackluster, but upgrading it is so much more than just making it look pretty. When you update your garage, you're building in value and increasing how safe your items are within it. To start with, you should replace your garage door if it's older than 20 years. Not only do garage doors wear out increasingly fast, but the moment you replace them, you're building in a lot of value. Replacing a garage door has a higher return on investment than any other home update and increases your property's curb appeal if your garage is front-facing. Another update for this space that many forget about is finishing the floors. Garage floors are hit by everything from leaks from your car to spilled cleaning supplies, so it's vital that you get a base that can handle all of that and more! Putting in epoxy-painted concrete floors will give you a chance to update your property to something fantastic. Not only do these look great, but they protect your flooring and last for an incredibly long time. There’s Nothing Like Remodeling to Reduce Work! Although remodeling may require an incredible amount of work upfront, in the long run, it will save you countless hours of maintenance and work. If you have your eye on the long-term, consider some of these updates!

TruBlue Teams Up with CarePatrol
TruBlue Total House Care forms a partnership with CarePatrol. CarePatrol is an industry leader that provides care advisory services. With over 150 locations throughout the United States, many of their offices overlap with our TruBlue offices. Because both companies are franchises, there's high flexibility with the partnership. Together, local owners can team up and form a plan that best serves their communities. CarePatrol knows that families who are looking for care options often need more than a housing change or a skilled caregiver. That’s where TruBlue comes in. TruBlue will offer CarePatrol’s customers the ability to remain independent, with home safety modifications. "A TruBlue franchisee may have clients on a monthly subscription program, and those seniors or their families may ask for a referral to a local senior housing or care provider, or a CarePatrol client may ask for home modification when moving," said Coumbs. "The local TruBlue franchisee can now refer to their local CarePatrol strategic partner as a reliable advisor to come in and provide a no-cost educational program for seniors and help them choose a new community. The CarePatrol franchisee can also now lean on a nearby TruBlue operation as a trusted provider of home assessment, modification, and maintenance."
