Caregivers With Hope Offers Help to Thrive – Not Just Survive.

“I have learned that healthy caregivers make better caregivers, and that we can live a calmer, healthier, and more joyful life in the midst of some very difficult and trying circumstances. Caregivers with Hope is committed to making that possible.”
Peter Rosenberger, Founder Caregivers with Hope

CaregiversWithHope_Logo.jpgEndless and skyrocketing medical costs. Loneliness. Stress. Hopelessness. These are just a few of the calling cards received by over 65 million Americans that serve as family caregivers – unpaid friends and family who are providing care for someone who is ill, disabled or aged. In many instances, they are on call 24/7 and face challenges that have a far-reaching impact within the religious, medical, and social service communities, as well as the workplace. The emotional and financial stress that inevitably comes with the territory is having a catastrophic effect on the family unit with almost 90% of marriages with a disabled family member ending in divorce. The murder/suicide rates are on the rise among caregivers and their loved ones and are expected to continue to escalate.

Caregivers with Hope, founded by Peter Rosenberger, offers clear, proven strategies to guide caregivers towards a healthier lifestyle in every facet of their life. Peter is ‘the Caregivers Caregiver’ bringing diverse talent and outrageous humor and candor to encourage others. “The goal is not just making family caregivers feel better, but offering them the tools and empowerment to be better” says Rosenberger.

Through an unparalleled journey with his wife Gracie, Peter has navigated through a medical nightmare for the past three decades that has included 78 operations and the amputation of both of Gracie’s legs. In the process, he has learned that a caregiver cannot only survive, but thrive in the midst of oftentimes grim circumstances. A most ardent champion for the cause of family caregivers for years as a speaker, author and radio host of his own weekly show on News Radio WLAC 1510 in Nashville (also on iHeart Radio), he is also an accomplished pianist and black belt in Hapkido.

In addition to directly strengthening the caregiver, Caregivers with Hope provides invaluable resources to counselors, clergy, and medical practitioners. With an estimated 47% of caregivers still in the workforce, it also offers valuable tips to employers to help them better understand the needs of their employees who also serve as caregivers. Caregivers with Hope offers guidance to businesses who provide products and services to the caregiver on how they can better understand their customer and meet their needs in the best way possible.

Peter’s lengthy media credits include USA Today, Today, The Today Show, Fox news, Guideposts, AARP, BBC World News, among others, and he offers practical help in his latest book, Hope for the Caregiver – Encouraging Words to Strengthen Your Spirit (Worthy Inspired, September 2014), heartily endorsed by comedian, author, and television host Jeff Foxworthy.

“In a world hung up on trying to make sense out of hard times, Peter drives the point home that we don’t have to understand—God understands, and that’s enough. This is THE book for caregivers, written by one with scars and immense credibility.”

Q & A with Wayne E. Nance

Author of The 3-Minute Difference:

ALTER Your Health, Money, and Relationships without Changing Who You Are

Q: In your book,you say that we can ALTER our core beliefs and attitudes by following five proven steps. What are those five steps?

A: Based upon the research I have done, I am convinced that if you alter an attitude, then you can change behavior. Attitudes are altered and behaviors are changed. Attitudes are developed by the age of six years. Attitudes are the combination of God’s hard wiring and the soft wiring that results from parental and other social influences during the first six years of life.

The five steps are related to the acronym A-L-T-E-R:

A = Awareness. Become aware of your attitude – the natural, inborn hardwiring and soft wiring that drives your beliefs and behavior.

L = Learn. Learn as much as you can about the wiring which is at the core of your attitude, and how it impacts your beliefs and ultimately, life choices.

T = Tactical plan.  Customize a specific plan that will address the issues that you need to work on in your life. One size does not fit all.

E = Execute the plan. Execute and start working now on a daily plan of action for 91 days to improve your life. Stop talking about it, stop thinking about it and just walk the walk.

R = Re-evaluate.  Every 91 days for one year, reevaluate your progress and adjust your goals to continue on your journey to self-improvement. As Wayne says, “Don’t eat the elephant in one bite.”

Q: You are the founder and CEO of a company called Real Life Management, Inc. What is the goal of your company? What are you ultimately trying to achieve?

A: My favorite statement is that our goal is to provide education that we did not learn at home, school or at church. Financial, relationship, and health issues are the biggest areas of struggle that families throughout the world must overcome. We must put a stop to the devastation in these areas. Consider these alarming statistics.

  • 56% of our families divorce
  • 85% of Americans are broke by retirement age
  • 67% of adults and children are obese

We know why these issues are so devastating to families, and we will show them what to do about it. If we can correct destructive life choices, these stats will improve and families will be empowered to take control of their lives. The key is for individuals to decide they are sick and tired of being sick and tired of being sick and tired. Then, progress starts.

Q & A with Wayne E. Nance

Author of The 3-Minute Difference:

ALTER Your Health, Money, and Relationships without Changing Who You Are

Q: In The 3-Minute Difference, you talk about your life being out of control which ultimately led to this book. Please tell us briefly how your life was out of control and what “woke you up to reality.”

A: At age twenty-nine, I was 305 pounds, smoking incessantly, crippled with $40,000 in credit card debt and facing divorce. I was a card-carrying workaholic, sacrificing my family for fortune in the name of “providing for my family.” My cardiologist said I would likely never see forty. Still, I was in denial and didn’t really believe it. Then one day my tailor called me a “fat slob”, and that stunned me into reality.

Q: So what is your life like today Wayne? How is it different than before?

A: By following the principles I’ve learned through research about nutrition, finances and relationships, I’ve lost more than one hundred pounds, quit smoking, eliminated my credit card debt, put some balance into my work life, and rescued my marriage and family. I’ve been married thirty-eight years to my beautiful wife and have three wonderful daughters. I’m like everyone else who reads this book or sees me on an interview. My life has its turns and twists almost every day. I work every day to be the best I can be.

Q: According to The 3-Minute Difference, you have done more than twenty-five years of extensive research into the areas of health, money, and relationships and have now created a tool to help other people do the same thing. Tell us about the 3-Minute Survey and how it can help us.

A: The 3-Minute Survey is a quick and easy online survey that assesses a person’s core attitudes. It only requires about three minutes to complete. It has proven to be 88% accurate and extremely insightful for people. The results of the survey are provided immediately to those who take it online. Then if they wish, there are more in-depth evaluations that are available.

The amazing thing about this simple survey and what you learn about yourself is that it teaches you how to understand and communicate so much better with your spouse, family, friends, business associates and others. It’s a bit like learning French so that you can speak to people when you travel to Paris. If you don’t speak their language (meet their needs), it’s incredibly hard to communicate, much less build a meaningful relationship with them. In the same way, if we want to communicate well with those who are important to us, we must figure out what language they speak and learn to speak it as well. It’s a simple concept, but one that’s often overlooked.

Q: What would you say is the primary difference in the 3-Minute Survey and personality tests in the market today?

A: For one thing, it only requires about 3 minutes to complete the survey, and it is not a test or a personality test. Based on my research, I don’t believe in personality tests. The results of our survey are more than 88% accurate and provide real insight for people into the core attitudes that undergird their beliefs and choices. Understanding our core attitudes gives us the power to alter them and thus the ability to improve our lives.

The results of the 3 minute survey can literally help save marriages, rebuild damaged relationships, improve financial management and strengthen business communications. It can greatly facilitate networking opportunities, create bridges with potential clients more quickly, and glue your family and relationships together in new and exciting ways. Believe me, it’s the real deal, and it really works.
