Testimonials for Coaching for Caregivers

“Yosaif August is the Vince Lombardi of coaching for caregivers.” —Andrew Schorr, two-time cancer patient; Author of The Web-Savvy Patient, Founder, PatientPower.info

“Yosaif August is quite the caregiving coach. His book provides a thorough compilation of resources for our nation’s caregivers. But what makes his book truly tremendous is his focus, not just on how to reach out for help, but on putting caregiver needs first to avoid burnout.” —Hal Chapel, CEO and Co-Founder, Lotsa Helping Hands

“It’s vital to take care of the caregiver! Yosaif does a terrific job of breaking down ways to do just that in a very consumable way.” —Sona Mehring, CaringBridge Founder and CEO

“I have been looking for a book on how to be a caregiver that is practical, accessible, concise and . . . gets them help where they decide they want it and need it. I have found it. This is also an excellent book for professional caregivers who coach family and friends and for the family and friends themselves.” —The Rev. George Handzo, BCC, CSSBB, Senior Consultant for Chaplaincy Care Leadership & Practice, HealthCare Chaplaincy, New York City

“Yosaif sure knows both coaching and caregiving, and his straight-forward and inviting style comes through loud and clear in his new book. The book should also be required reading for professional caregivers like doctors, nurses and hospice personnel.” —Ed Modell, most recent President of the International Coaching Federation

“If you’re ready to show up for practice, Yosaif ’s coaching can help you and your loved one get the love and support you need.” —Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of Love, Medicine and Miracles; co-author with Yosaif, of Help Me to Heal (Hay House, 2003)

“The book encourages the reader to actually “reach out” for the support, wisdom, strength and love they need to continue in the role as caregiver. Written as if the author is speaking directly to you.” —Louise Knight, M.S.W., LCSW-C, OSW-C, Director, Family Patient and Family Services Program, Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins
