AARP IL and the Bond County Senior Center 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 at 6 p.m.
A live simulcast of the event will be held at the Bond County Senior Center, 1001 East Harris Ave., Greeneville, IL 62246. Doors for the event will open at 5pm. A light dinner will be served. Participants are asked to register by calling the senior center (618)664-1465. Please register by Friday, August 19th.
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.
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 simulcast at AARP state offices 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. “
