Is it possible to thrive as a caregiver, and build success while dealing with adversity?
Peter Rosenberger has navigated an unparalleled journey and showed that it is possible to thrive, while being his wife’s sole caregiver for nearly thirty years. Through his knowledge and hands-on experience, he has learned how to handle chronic medical crises, and his passion is to teach other caregivers to do the same. Caregivers carry a stressful load, and Peter has the charm and skill to add humor and fun to the heavy topics of insurance claims and caring for a chronically ill/disabled loved one.
Through the strategies and lessons taught in Peter’s presentations, he teaches how to build personal and business success while navigating difficult times. Audience members learn how to live a calmer, more productive life while caring for their loved one, and they are able to strengthen their communication with the other people involved in the situation. “…One joke away from being a night club act,” Peter combines deep compassion with a contagious humor to bring fresh air into the painful places faced by America’s caregivers.
Over the years, Peter has labored through a medical nightmare while caring for his wife. Her medical conditions mushroomed to 78 operations, the amputation of both her legs, and $9 million in medical bills. The experience and wisdom he has gleaned gives Peter a unique and astonishing understanding of health care issues facing millions of people. But more than that, he has unmatched empathy for the deep heartache that causes even the strongest to falter.
