Peter Rosenberger: An exceptional voice of experience—for an unprecedented need.

For more than thirty years, Peter Rosenberger has personally traveled the path of the family caregiver. Through this journey, Peter’s discovered a caregiver cannot only survive, but thrive in oftentimes grim circumstances.

In an unparalleled journey with his wife Gracie, Peter has navigated a medical nightmare that has mushroomed to 80 major operations—including the amputation of both of Gracie’s legs below the knee.  These difficult experiences led Peter to work with more than 80 treating physicians in 12 hospitals, and 7 medical insurance companies, and medical bills soaring to more than $10 millions. All these circumstances resulted in Peter developing a firm grasp of the healthcare issues faced by families with disabilities.

Since 2013, he has carried his message of health and hope for the caregiver to the airwaves, hosting his own weekly show on I Heart Media’s News Channel 1510 WLAC in Nashville, TN.  In September 2017, Peter took his radio show into syndication through the Truth Network.  In addition, his “YOUR CAREGIVER MINUTE” features air on more than 380 stations.

HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER

Peter’s powerful book, HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER, served as the launching point for his national outreach to family caregivers.  Since 2013, he has carried his message of health and hope for the caregiver to the airwaves, hosting his own weekly show called HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER. 

In September 2017, Peter took his radio show into syndication through the Truth Network.  In addition, his “YOUR CAREGIVER MINUTE” features air on more than 380 stations.

 

 

 

The Music

When Words Fail, Music Speaks.  – Hans Christian Andersen

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. With a lengthy list of performances, Peter also is an avid composer and arranger.  Peter recently scored a short-film titled, THE GATE.  Furthermore, he recently released his CD:  Songs for the Caregiver

 

 

In this CD, Peter features not only inspiring arrangements of familiar hymns, but he also includes Gracie’s powerful and passionate voice on numerous songs.  Peter also brings other instrumentalist friends to the project. Featured on this CD is the original tune I CAN ONLY HOLD YOU NOW.  This song, co-written by Peter and veteran song-writer, Buddy Mondlock, continues to deeply move listeners across the country.

His book, HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER (Worthy Inspired) is now in its fifth printing.  In addition to two other books, Peter’s most recent is titled 7 Caregiver Landmines and How You Can Avoid Them

Caregiver Self-Defense

An avid participant in martial arts, Peter recently earned a 2nd degree black-belt in Hap-kido.  When speaking at events, Peter often draws upon self-defense techniques to help caregivers better understand how to defend themselves.  In addition, he refers to the principles of those techniques to help caregivers with emotional self-defense.

“I recently asked a room full of nurses, ‘How many of you have ever been grabbed by a patient?’

Astonishingly, 100 % of the audience raised their hands.

I then asked, ‘How many of you have been choked by a patient?’

Nearly 100% of the audience raised their hands!”

So many caregivers are women taking care of much larger husbands.  Learning how to free themselves of an impaired loved one becomes a necessity, and Peter often demonstrates easy ways for them to do so without hurting themselves or loved one.

Likewise, the same principle applies when dealing with the criticisms and verbal conflicts that arise in caregiving situations.

“All too many caregivers suffer from low self-esteem.  How you can defend yourself if you don’t value yourself?”

Peter provides proven tips and wisdom on caregivers can safely navigate through those challenging emotional and verbal circumstances.  Furthermore, he is on a mission to strengthen the self-esteem of fellow caregivers in order for them to live a calmer, healthier, and even more joyful life.

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.

As she fought for life, independence, and every footstep, others hoped for the best—but many secretly felt a promising career, voice, and life was prematurely shut down by trauma, pain, and disability.

The count so far?

  • 78 Operations
  • 80+ Treating physicians
  • 12 Hospitals
  • 7 Insurance companies
  • $10 million in medical bills

But that’s not the end of the story …by a long shot. Launching a prosthetic limb outreach to her fellow amputees in West Africa, Gracie determined to offer the same hope that she herself depends upon.  She continues to inspire and strenghten others …from the wards of Walter Reed Army Medical Center to some of the biggest stages in the world, Gracie’s voice has resonated and lifted countless hearts and lives.
