Do any of you have experience with live-in housekeepers? I'm trying to figure out what a fair price per week would be. My elderly parents (small town in the South) temporarily have their housekeeper living in. My dad recently had a major surgery and they need a little extra help, including over night. Their housekeeper has worked for them for several years, just a few mornings per week, but was willing to do more for awhile. My problem? She's reluctant to name a number, just wants me to pick a number out of the blue to pay her. She's a gem, and I certainly don't want to offend her by offering too little, but I also don't want to overpay. I live 1000 miles away and don't have a lot of contacts in my hometown anymore. Any suggestions?
