Senior Care in the Fort Worth region

As the population of Fort Worth’s and neighboring communities continues to age, Chris and Lee strongly believe that the majority of seniors want to age happier in their homes. The mission of Nurse Next Door is to provide comprehensive care that enables seniors to stay in their homes for as long as they wish and to experience joy in their lives through Nurse Next Door’s core purpose of Making Lives Better™.

With our backgrounds in health care, we have observed a huge dilemma facing seniors and elder care services today. Seniors want to stay in their homes, they want to do activities they enjoy and they want to be happy. Nurse Next Door addresses this dilemma by providing the care seniors need, by relieving the pressure on families, and by focusing on enriching the lives of the clients we serve.

We’re an elder care agency with heart. These four core values guide everything we do, every day: Admire People, WOW Customer Experience, Find a Better and Passionate About Making a Difference.

By partnering with Nurse Next Door, you’ll have the peace of mind and knowledge that the team is here to make seniors’ lives better while ensuring they retain their dignity. Nurse Next Door Fort Worth goes beyond providing tasks. On top of offering a wide range of services from light housekeeping to personal care, we also focus on Happier Aging™ – a truly unique experience dedicated to help seniors get back to doing what they love.

Perfect Match Guarantee

Nurse Next Door Fort Worth clients are not just assigned a caregiver. We match clients and caregivers based on skill, needs, and interests. We believe in building relationships beyond care.

Consistency in Care

We believe that in order for caregivers to deliver Happier Aging and deliver care that goes beyond simply performing tasks, consistency in care is crucial. Unlike other home care agencies, we make sure to send the same caregivers to clients so they learn their routine and their specificities.
