An exceptional voice of experience—for an unprecedented need.
Peter Rosenberger is the founder of Caregivers With Hope. For the past 30 years, radio host, author, speaker, accomplished pianist, and black-belt in Hapkido, Peter has personally traveled the path of the family caregiver. In the process, he has learned that a caregiver cannot only survive, but thrive in the midst of oftentimes grim circumstances. In an unparalleled journey with his wife Gracie, he has navigated a medical nightmare that has mushroomed to 78 operations, the amputation of both of Gracie’s legs, treatment by more than 75 doctors in 12 hospitals, 7 medical insurance companies, and $10 million in medical bills.
This experience unquestionably qualifies him as an expert as a caregiver and has made him a most ardent champion for the family caregiver, providing him with an astonishing understanding of health care issues and a deep compassion for others. His outrageous humor and candor brings freshness, hope and laughter into the painful places of caregiving. He regularly speaks on a wide range of topics that include healthcare and finances, caregivers in the workplace, facing adversity, thriving as a caregiver, and family relationships.
Earning a Bachelor of Music from Belmont University, Peter is an accomplished pianist and often incorporates his expressive style of music into his presentations as he entertains, inspires, and challenges audiences from all walks of life.
Since 2013, he has carried his message of health and hope for the caregiver to the airwaves, hosting his own weekly show on WLAC 1510 in Nashville. His latest book, Hope for the Caregiver provides practical tools and encouragement for the caregiver.
Targeting America’s 65+ million family caregivers, Peter founded Caregivers with Hope, with the goal of not just making family caregivers feel better, but offering them the tools and empowerment to be better. Drawing upon Peter’s decades as a caregiver, Caregivers with Hope offers clear, proven, strategies and tools to guide caregivers towards a healthier lifestyle in every facet of their life. In addition, Caregivers with Hope provides invaluable tools to counselors, clergy, medical practitioners, employers and businesses faced with addressing the needs of the caregiver.
Gracie and Peter also founded Standing with Hope Inc., a nonprofit evangelical prosthetic limb outreach to amputees in West Africa.
As a caregiver, Peter has few peers. As a voice of leadership and authority on the heart of a caregiver …he stands as a leading voice of authority on how to help strengthen the family caregiver.
Through his radio show, his stirring music, his goofy humor, extensive media interviews, books, and live appearances,
Often calling himself the “Crash-test Dummy of Caregivers,” Peter Rosenberger continues to inspire, entertain, challenge, and lift the hearts of his fellow caregivers.
More than thirty years ago, a young woman struggled to wrap her mind around a hateful new reality following the horrific car accident she endured. Gracie Parker was only 17 years old when her wreck occurred.
