Jeff Vandegenachte, co-owner of TruBlue House Care in Southern Wisconsin, is now one of a select group of professionals nationwide to earn the Senior Home Safety Specialist™ designation, identifying him as having obtained the knowledge necessary to help educate older adults and family members on the serious issues of home safety, fall prevention, personal safety and financial exploitation.

“Susan and I are into our third year with TruBlue House Care. We enjoy taking care of families in need. We have great respect for the elderly and it is gratifying when we are able to help them stay safe in their homes. I look forward to helping those endeavoring to age-in-place in the Waukesha and Walworth County areas to make the necessary modifications and preparations they will need to enable them to live safe and secure in their own homes for as long they wish,” Jeff said.

Approximately a third of adults age 65 years or older fall in their home each year, resulting in injury, long-term disability and premature loss of independence. By 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated the cost related to these kinds of injuries to be over $60 Billion a year. In an effort to help reduce and prevent falls and their associated costs, Age Safe America developed this program as a way to help professionals educate older adults and families to make preparations now to ensure ongoing freedom and independence for all.
