Since mid-August, the attentive commuters in northeast Indiana, may have noticed bright, lime green Ford Fiestas wrapped with People TrueCare logos criss-crossing the area.
“People TrueCare is a new, state-licensed personal services agency. We provide customized care to individuals and families throughout every stage of their lives, from newborns to seniors,” Jami VandeVelde, CEO of the Auburn-based company, says, “Our professionals use our People True Care Cars to provide in-home, hands-on assistance or can also be seen running errands for clients.”

Founded in 2013, People TrueCare has three divisions, Baby TrueCare, Personal TrueCare and Senior TrueCare. “We were formerly known as Concierge for You,” VandeVelde explains, “we’ve been in business since 2011 but needed to expand.”
The full-service agency grew out of an increased demand
for a wider array of personal services and the need to provide them in a more specialized manner.
“For instance, with Senior TrueCare our services allow individuals to live independently longer in their own homes and continue with their daily routines,” she says, “Our home care professionals are a great asset for our seniors.”
Senior TrueCare provides customized, independent living to individuals. While the services are defined by each client, social media testimonials gush that the care givers attentions go beyond expectations. Along with prolonging seniors’ autonomy, such custom arrangements have the added benefit of allowing heads of families to maintain their traditional roles and relationships with family members.
Senior TrueCare’s careful hiring practices, mean senior care-givers are personable, close-in-age, veterans in their field, have a lifetime of experience, make common-sense decisions and are trained to assist with an individual’s evolving needs.
“We carefully select our team members through an extensive interview process and background check,” the CEO says of her professional and experienced care-givers.
“But the real difference is that our people have a calling. A lot of it has to do with their can-do attitudes, they see themselves as problem solvers and have a deep-set and personal desire to make a difference in individuals’ lives,” says VandeVelde.
Now, when Northeast Indiana residents see the People TrueCare Cars, they’ll know it’s a good thing. They’re on the road to provide a helping hand to someone in the community.
