"Texas Caregiver Support Services" was founded in 2014 by Mr. Brian Mertz. 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."

Brian has become a Texas caregiver advocate and encourages paid caregiver employment as a solution to the quietly increasing family caregiver crisis.
