Along with Logan, we are a husband, wife, and son-in-law team whose personal life experiences and commitment to family have shaped and guided us to where we are today. As advocates for the elderly, it is our desire to come alongside you and your family as you navigate the maze of senior home care options.

We look forward to getting to know you more. In the meantime, here is a little about our stories and journey into senior home care:

Scott Risley

My name is Scott and my journey into home care begins with the experience I had with my own family. I was born in a small town in the midwest, surrounded by my extended family including my grandparents and great-grandparents.

My first encounter with senior health was when my great-grandmother broke her hip and was taken to a long-term care facility, away from our family and the place she called home. My second experience was with my grandparents who were fortunate to have my mother to care for them in the home they owned since the 1940s. The difference in the quality of life of my great-grandmother and grandparents in those last stages was immense. Life’s final stages are a time to be treasured and should be spent at home, surrounded by family and loved ones.

It is our personal and professional experiences that led us to where we are today. After owning a business and consulting for three decades, my wife Tina and I finally made the decision to pursue our passions and start a career in-home care as owners of Preferred Care at Home of Greater Huntsville and Birmingham. We consider it a privilege to come alongside the families in our community to provide quality home care services in the comfort and security of home.

Tina Risley

My name is Tina and, like Scott, it is my personal life experiences that have led me to senior care. My story is centered around family and begins in Upstate New York. I was raised with seven older brothers and along with our immediate family size often, my grandfather, great grandfather, and great grandmother lived with us. As they aged and needed more care and support, my parents did not want to take them to a nursing home, away from the support of our family. As I reflect on my childhood, I have a deep respect for my parents. They both dedicated their entire lives to taking care of all of us and ensuring my grandfather and great-grandparents lived a wonderful life, all the way through their final days.

Years passed and my mother became ill and was diagnosed with COPD and Emphysema at the age of 64. It was my turn to take care of her the same way she took care of our family. I quit my full-time job to dedicate my time to my mother. She declined very quickly. Her wishes were to pass in hospice because my father was still living in their farmhouse at the time. I am beyond grateful I was able to make her wishes come true and to be by her side during those last stages.

Two years later my father became very ill. He was diagnosed with Leukemia and his organs started to fail. Willingly, I quit my job again to take care of him the same way I took care of my mother. His wishes were to die in the farmhouse where he had fond memories of our family. I will be forever thankful for the at-home care team that made that possible.

While these experiences were very difficult, at the center of each story is a commitment to love and family. It is that commitment that has motivated me to become an owner of Preferred Care at Home, where I am able to dedicate my life to helping families through life’s final stages.

Logan Lutz

My name is Logan and I have always had a passion for helping others, and it began with my experience with my grandparents. Growing up, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to spend every day with my grandparents and formed an incredible bond with them. As years passed, I witnessed first-hand the physical decline of my grandmother and the emotional turmoil it caused my grandfather. After watching them grow older and enter the late stages of life, I knew my purpose was to have a positive impact on others’ lives.

My professional career began at a Children’s Hospital as a radiologic technologist in the medical field. After a few years, my career path took a change and I started working in financial services, assisting families with estate and long-term care planning.

After meeting my wife and building our family in Huntsville, AL, I partnered with my in-laws, Scott and Tina, and finally followed my dream of helping the elderly community. As a family member of Preferred Care at Home, I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to provide a much-needed service in our local community and to make a difference in other people’s lives.
