Live Aug. 25 AARP online family caregiving event to feature Tennessee author Peter Rosenberger

AARP has announced it will broadcast a live online family caregiving event on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016, from Nashville featuring author and speaker Peter Rosenberger.

Rosenberger, founder of Caregivers With Hope, will be featured in a free interactive webinar titled Unstuck: Lightening the Heart of the Family Caregiver with Humor, starting at 6 p.m. CDT.

The webinar, which is part of AARP’s nationwide educational series on family caregiving, will be open to participants nationwide and simulcast at AARP state offices around the country. The online event can be viewed by registering at http://goo.gl/G8rkiG or by attending a live simulcast at one of three locations:

AARP Arkansas State Office, 1701 Centerview Drive, Suite 205, Redding Building, Little Rock. Register online at https://aarp.cvent.com/d/pvqmpn/1Q or call (501) 217-1628.

Hempstead Hall Auditorium, University of Arkansas Community College at Hope campus, Arkansas Highway 29 South. Register at https://aarp.cvent.com/d/9vqmp8/1Q

Participants will learn how to lighten their heart, rediscover their identity and find a safe emotional path—with a healthy dose of Peter’s outrageous humor and candor.

“After more than 30 years on the path as a family caregiver for my wife Gracie – including 78 operations, the amputation of both her legs, 60 doctors in 12 hospitals and $9 million medical bills – I’ve learned: it’s okay to laugh,” Rosenberg said.

Everyone who registers for the webinar will receive an electronic copy of Peter’s book, Seven Landmines for Caregivers & How You Can Avoid Them. Those who attend an in-person watch party will have the chance to win a copy of Peter’s book.

“Humor is a healthy expression of a healthy heart – not a defense mechanism,” said Rosenberger, founding of Caregivers with Hope. “I’ve learned that family caregivers cannot only survive, but thrive in the midst of oftentimes grim circumstances. “
