With impressive museums, forward-thinking parks, and its historic Stockyards District, Fort Worth has a uniquely Texan identity that sets it apart from the rest of the Dallas-Arlington area.
Home care, or in-home care, is a service which offers compassion and help to seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and wish to remain in their homes. Levels of care vary according to need, and can include companionship, meal prep, cleaning, transportation, and help with ADLs like bathing and dressing. Home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of senior care but generally aren’t licensed to provide medical services.
The median monthly cost of a home-health aide is about $4,200 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and around $4,000 in the state of Texas, according to Genworth.

Although it’s often grouped into the larger metro area including Dallas and Arlington, Fort Worth has a rich history and distinctive culture of its own. Railroads built in the late 1800s connected the country to the American West and turned Fort Worth into a substantial livestock hub. Today, that truly Texan tradition continues in the Fort Worth Stockyards District, where visitors can walk the brick streets and explore the area’s many old-fashioned saloons, restaurants, and country music venues.
Over the years, Fort Worth has also become known for its many art museums, including the Kimbell Art Museum for its collection of international works, as well as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which mostly features exhibits of 20th century pieces. In Sundance Square, a popular shopping and entertainment district in downtown Fort Worth, the Sid Richardson Museum focuses on paintings depicting the American West.
Two of the city’s truly unique attractions combine the natural world with distinctively man-made touches. In the downtown area, the Fort Worth Water Gardens is an urban park designed in 1974 featuring layers of descending waterfalls, pools, and benches, where visitors are free to roam and cool down from the Texas heat. On the northwestern edge of town is Airfield Falls Conservation Park, a network of hiking and biking trails along a branch of the Trinity River that’s home to many natural waterfalls. The park gets its name from the neighboring naval air base and the sections of jet aircraft installed in the ground at the park’s entrance.
Public transportation in Fort Worth includes Trinity Metro — a network of buses, carpools, and vanpools in Fort Worth and other cities in Tarrant County — as well as ACCESS paratransit service, which offers door-to-door transportation for anyone with limited mobility, and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE), a commuter rail service connecting downtown Fort Worth to downtown Dallas.
