Founder and Director
Matthew Long is the Founder and President of Husky Senior Care. During college, Matt served as a caregiver for a senior with Parkinson's disease and as a night manager for a Sunrise Senior Living community in Seattle. After graduating from the University of Washington, Matt worked in the senior housing industry for twelve years as a Marketing Director, Administrator, and Executive. In these positions, Matt was a trusted advisor to thousands of seniors who were at the crossroads of either staying home with help or moving into retirement or assisted living. He observed that seniors lacked a credible stay home alternative to counterbalance the forces that pull seniors out of their homes. Matt founded Husky Senior Care to provide a muscular ally for seniors who want to stay home.
Matt has both a Bachelor's Degree and a Master’s Degrees from the University of Washington. As a graduate student, he taught at UW for three years.

Victoria Long was the first Care Manager and Assistant Care Supervisor for Husky Senior Care when the company was founded in 2009. During college, while studying early childhood learning, Victoria served as the primary caregiver for her aged mother who was a stroke victim. After college, Victoria worked at Ryther Child Center in the field of social work. Victoria then applied her social work background to senior living communities, working as an Activity Director and Assistant Administrator for five years. During this time she gained more insight into the challenges that seniors face and the fact that their desires often vary from the solutions provided in the marketplace. She also met Matt and they were married in 2005! She is an integral part of the vision and ongoing mission of Husky Senior Care.

Liz joined Husky Senior Care in August 2014.
Hello, my name is Elisabeth Schreck and I am one of the schedulers at Husky Senior Care. Husky Senior Care is like my home away from home. When I started working here I was pleasantly surprised with the exceptional family dynamic of working for this growing company. I love working with and providing a valuable service to seniors! Husky Senior Care really understands the value in keeping the office staff, caregivers and clients happy. A large part of my job is ensuring that everyone’s needs are met with the right match between client and their caregiver. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error, but with some helpful feedback, taking into consideration interests, personality and demographic, we are able to send a wonderful caregiver who will cater to the senior’s needs. The relationship between caregiver and client is so important. The right caregiver can be a strong advocate, source of security and great companion to an elderly person, as I have worked as a Caregiver prior to accepting the scheduling role for Husky Senior Care. I have found that I really enjoy working in the senior care industry. It is our duty to take care of those who have taken care of us. It is my way of giving back. From our family to yours, thank you for being a part of Husky Senior Care!
