How to swap caregiving chores
May 22, 2010 4:13 PM Subscribe
Elderly father-in-law is coming to live with us (my husband and me). Sister caring for our elderly mother, lives nearby. Sister is fabulous cook, and likes to cook. I hate cooking, and always eat out. Elderly father-in-law's presence will end that. Sister and I want to swap chores, doing for each other what we're good at and like to do. How in the world can I compensate her for cooking for us? Besides buying the food. I can do the shopping, and even pay for the food, but what else? My only talents are hand sewing, crocheting, making quilts. Has anyone done this community type of thing? Any suggestions?
