NASHVILLE, Tennessee, November 23, 2012 - With 65 million Americans serving as a volunteer caregiver for a chronically ill, disabled, or elderly loved one, the need is now greater than ever for experienced individuals to provide leadership and offer practical counsel to those caring for society’s most vulnerable members. The new book, WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES - Surviving and Thriving as a Caregiver, provides a sensible path to a healthier life for caregivers, in order to equip them to more effectively care for the ones they love.
With a focus on "those who push the wheelchair," author/speaker and caregiver, Peter W. Rosenberger, draws upon more than twenty-six years as a caregiver through a medical catastrophe involving 73 operations, multiple amputations, 55 physicians, 12 hospitals, 6 insurance companies, and $9 million in health costs - to share practical tips, Biblical principles, and a smattering of his outrageous humor, in order to equip others to survive and thrive as caregivers.
Practical, compassionate, and reflective of the vast experience Peter brings to this issue. As baby-boomers rush to senior status, the challenges of caregiving will only increase. Peter’s voice is one of leadership, wisdom, and understanding of this critical topic that will eventually affect all of us.
