caregiver christmas bonus

My mom's caregiver has been with us for 2 years. She is a live-in and does a good job. My mom has had two strokes, can't talk or walk and is bedridden now.
What would you suggest for a Christmas bonus? The caregiver received a nice raise at two years.

I would love to be more generous, but I have lost my job and money isn't plentiful.

She makes $600 a week.

Re: caregiver christmas bonus

My heartfelt empathy to you and your mother.Under the circumstances,I think you must give from the heart.If you are talking strictly a money gift,then you have to
give whatever percentage of the $600 a week,that you can afford.Your love and appreciation has to be your strongest gift this holiday season. I will say a prayer for you. Bill
