Franklin, North Carolina — AARP today announced it will broadcast a live online family caregiving event 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,” Thursday, August 25th.

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.
AARP has announced it will give 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.
The webinar, which is part of AARP’s nationwide educational series on family caregiving, will be open to participants nationwide and a simulcast at local sites around the country.
“Humor is a healthy express 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. “
