What to pay for respite care?

Postby juliem65 » Fri Apr 01, 2016 8:28 pm

We will be taking a weekend trip and leaving our 17 year old with a caregiver.
He has a diagnosis of autism.
He is familiar with the person that will be coming to our home and we are comfortable with leaving our child with this person.

I would like to pay her fairly for her time.
She will be in our home from Friday, 3:30 pm - Sunday, 6:30 pm.
I have no idea the cost of respite care as we never leave him.
Can anyone help with this?
Thank you in advance.
