Caring for aging seniors can be both rewarding and very difficult. Being a caregiver helps breathe fresh life into infirm seniors and disabled adults all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It's difficult to do it alone, however, and even an experienced senior living caregiver can be forgiven for needing help from time to time. Being willing to reach out for assistance from the community is the mark of a superior caregiver since it brings extra talent and community support in to help the caregiver do his or her job. These 10 Dallas-Fort Worth caregiver support groups and resources do just that for local caregivers, and each has something special to contribute.

Alzheimer's Texas brings together thousands of people with relevant expertise in caring for seniors from all over the state. The organization provides classes and a support group for caregivers, as well as consultations with licensed social workers (LCSWs) and respite care for members who need three or four hours off a week to refresh and recharge.
