Just booked OH in for 2 weeks respite. It's £850 a week, and we are not in anywhere particularly expensive. Daily respite is over £15/ hr, so your £50 would get 3hrs care! If someone would look after OH for £50 per week I would snap their hand off! I think you need to set a higher, realistic price. I understand OH is at a later stage, but I'm on second carer breakdown. As has been said, if anyone complains, hand her over.
