Mr. Brian Mertz is the creator of both the "World Caregiver Network" and "Texas Caregiver Support Services." Brian first became involved with caregiver issues after his father was diagnosed with Dementia in 2013. Two years later, Brian's mother (who was also her husband's primary caregiver) was diagnosed with Brain Cancer and passed away in June 2015. In September 2018, Brian's father passed away from, "Senile Degeneration of the Brain."
During his five-year caregiver journey, Brian created both organizations to, "publicize caregiver information, promote caregiver products & services and encourage paid caregiver employment" for ALL caregivers.
