Hummingbird Coaching Partners with Leeza's Place to Help Caregivers “Take Your Oxygen First”

Online Coaching Provides Caregiving Needed Resources and Coping Strategies

Cincinnati (PRWEB) May 21, 2009 -- Hummingbird Coaching Services and Leeza’s Place have teamed to provide online coaching for caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease, offering needed resources and coping strategies.

Working on concepts in “Take Your Oxygen First: Protecting Your Health and Happiness While Caring for a Loved One with Memory Loss,” a new book by entertainment broadcaster and Alzheimer’s advocate Leeza Gibbons, Hummingbird’s coaches help caregivers understand the need to first care for themselves as they care for their loved ones.

At no cost, caregivers can log onto the book’s website,, to try out the benefits of coaching for 30 days. They will have unlimited access to a personal coach, who helps them develop strategies to find more personal time and energy.

“There are 50 million people caring for someone with an illness or chronic disease,” said Gibbons in a recent television interview on the Today Show. “Our mantra at Leeza’s Place is that as a caregiver, you really have to nourish yourself first. It's imperative that you take your oxygen first. Otherwise, you’ll be so depleted from the frustration, isolation, stress and fear that you'll be no good to anyone. You realize you can’t do it alone.”

Gibbons founded the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation, and its signature program, Leeza’s Place, to provide caregiver advocacy and support following her mother Jean’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

"I wish I could have had a coach when my grandmother and mother were disappearing from Alzheimer's disease. It was death in slow motion and our entire family began to unravel. A coach who understands caregiving is a powerful way to make sense of the chaos and regain some control over a situation that is so overwhelming."

“Take Your Oxygen First” informs and inspires caregivers to take care of themselves so they might meet the challenges of giving care to another. Gibbons and her family members cared for her mother for more than a decade, and their heartfelt, candid accounts are combined with current medical, nutritional, psychological and spiritual information and advice for caregivers.

Caregivers can receive coaching through a number of communications channels, such as telephone, instant messaging, e-mail and text messaging, as well as mobile devices. The convenience and frequency of communication between coaches and caregivers helps build rapport and trust, leading to lasting behavior change.

Caregivers access through their personal password-protected Member Page and can ask questions or chronicle their experiences in an online journal. They also have access to educational materials and community forums to share ideas, challenges, and support with other caregivers.

Hummingbird Coaching Services has provided one-on-one health coaching since 1997. Their proprietary coaching model and online delivery platform is used by major employers, health plans and pharmaceutical companies to drive behavior change among employees and patients; Visit the caregiver site at
