How much would you say is a fair amount to gift a friend for showering elderly mother - Mother won't have a carer and will let me do everything except shower her (which I can understand I think I would be the same if roles were reversed) She is willing to let my friend shower her who has done it a couple of times already but feel that I am taking advantage and would like to gift her but I no idea of the going rate Thanks

Perhaps you might suggest to your friend a more formal arrangement. Perhaps you could claim carers allowance & give it to her.
On the other hand, you friend might not want any payment. In which case, buy a gift for say £20? Or even a card, if she won't accept anything.
#2
Thank you for your suggestion bubblegum2910 I have offered to pay her regularly but she has said definitely No
#3
what are her interests? how about flowers or a plant for her garden?
#4
True friends don't want paying, just a heart felt thank you is enough ,it's the fair weather friends that expect something.
#5
How about taking her for a meal occasionally
#6
Carer agencies would normally charge circa £20ph (that's in Sussex anyway), so I would think around £12 to £15 per hour would be a nice way to thank someone for helping your mother. HTH
#7
Your friend might not want paying because they don't want to make a long term commitment to do this.

I think you need to have a proper conversation with them. Maybe you need to sort out a paid carer to do this.
#8
Sounds like your friend is an absolute gem. What a lovely person.
#9
how about taking her for a Butlins weekend or something along the lines
#10
Would love to treat her to a weekend or even a week away but she would insist that I went with her and with my mum being so stubborn about who she will let help her - I can't unfortunately
#11
Maybe bake her a cake?

She can always enjoy it with your mother, or take it home.

It's something kind, caring, thoughtful, and homemade.

A gift card for a supermarket or some shop where she can buy something... 10/15 pounds I'd say.

Would you be able to manage a spa day or half say?
That may be a nice thank you gift and you could go with them?

Or afternoon tea somewhere or a trip for fish and chips as a little thank you?

For me when I do friends favours, I like nothing more than some acknowledgement of such. Perhaps as a thank you, you could cook a meal for said friend. Everyone needs to eat :3
