KNX Sandwich Generation Expo in Burbank (October 2016)
Thank you to all the caregivers who came to hear Jony talk on the Caregiver Burnout panel at the KNX Sandwich Generation Expo. Jony’s props helped bring home the message that caregivers are often “putting out fires” and need to have tools of self-care so they can burn bright without burning out!

Individual Consultations

COMING SOON! Jony will soon be available for individual caregiver consultations by phone. Jony is often sought out by caregivers (and their friends and family) to provide expert advice and a compassionate and non-judgmental listening ear, for stressed-out caregivers. She provides a place for caregivers to share their thoughts and feelings about the caregiver journey and to have someone with lived-experience help them come up with a plan and next steps. Jony is not a therapist, but as a health educator, and experienced long distance caregiver she understands first hand what caregivers are going through! Whether a caregiver just wants someone to listen to them and cheer them on, or a helping hand to come up with a strategy for their loved ones care, Jony is ready to jump in and ensure that the caregiving plan also includes self-care for the well-deserving caregiver.

Please keep an eye on this website in 2022 for updates on when the Individual Consultations services will be available!

“Jony Weiss is a treasure trove of information when it comes to caregiving, not only for the person needing care but the caregiver as well. My 95-year-old mother lives 2,000 miles away. I travel there several times a year to help with her care. Jony’s sharing her own experiences and insights in caring for her parents has been invaluable in making my caregiving time as productive and as pleasant as possible. Caregiving on a consistent basis can be challenging and frustrating. She emphasizes the importance of taking care of yourself with suggestions for doing things that are rejuvenating. Jony cuts to the heart of so many issues from her first-hand knowledge, that you will feel like she is a lifeline.” -Lee K., Temple City, California

“Jony Weiss helped my friend so much through her husband’s hospitalization. Jony’s advice and counsel helped my friend deal with the complexities and nuances of the medical system. Jony congratulated my friend on doing so many things right, which gave my friend great peace of mind. Also, Jony has helped me tremendously in dealing with my elderly mom’s hip fracture and all the ways I need to be prepared for next steps. I can’t thank her enough.”
