Dear Ninan, it is hard to back down a figure to how much to even charge your dad. If you are is Leagl care giver there are some laws some
states follow. since he is living with you and you are giving a place to live I know you can charge a certain amount. If you have accountant that does your taxes you can asked them. Because when you do you income that help falls in that tax return. I was unable to get any help due to moms illness all is going to the assisting living, even through I was taken care of her for years and watching and cleaning her house, and also had to leave my job. My accountant said I made that decision on my own even though I was legal full charge of mom.
