What is a proper amount to pay a private care giver for a Christmas/holiday bonus?
I know this is a different type question, and a little early, but I am very new to this and only recently started having in caregivers for my Mother. The one has been coming since the beginning of September for 2 hours at lunch and gets $18/hr. She has the harder time of getting Mother out of bed and dressed and she does some house work. The other only started this month, November, and comes for 2 hours in the evening for dinner and bed. She gets $15/hr.
I know it would be more if they had worked the whole year, but I have absolutely no idea what might be a proper amount for a bonus since neither has been with us for long. Can someone with experience give me some insight? Thank you
