What is the going salary for an "in home care giver"?
I am now providing in home care for an elderly woman with altimers (sp). I am receiving free room and board and food but I would like to know what if any salary should be included. I do all the house work, cooking, laundry and day to day care for this woman.

You don't say where you live, but in the UK this work is really badly paid. The National minimum wage set by law is about £5.50 per hour, less a deduction for room and food. You should negotiate with your patient's relatives for a better deal. Find other people in the same line of work locally and compare notes.
