Leeza Gibbons Speaks from Experience

When television host Leeza Gibbons’ mother Jean began to battle Alzheimer’s, her struggle challenged the whole family. Just as Jean had with her own mother, Leeza stepped in to help care for Jean -- and discovered, not without difficulty, the physical and emotional strength required to support someone living with progressive dementia. In Take Your Oxygen First, Gibbons gives frank advice about the necessity of taking care of yourself first, so you can be a good caregiver to your loved one.
