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."

After his five-year caregiver journey, Brian decided to dedicate his life to "publicizing caregiver information, promoting caregiver products & services and encouraging paid caregiver employment" for ALL caregivers."​
