Vacation help

My family and I are going to be going on vacation to Florida for a week pretty soon. Someone will come to feed the other animals, but I don't know them, so I don't want them to mess with my fish (because it's more complicated than "Leave X amount for the cats each day"). I'll feed them before I leave and I think they'll do okay.

The problem is Merlin.

I know 1fish2fish did a great job nursing him back to health and he's been doing great, but I'm afraid he'll get sick again if the water isn't cleaned. I've been changing his water 100% every other day. We have to leave by 4:30 A.M. (!!!) to make the plane, so I can't do it the day we leave. Am I worrying over nothing? Is there anything I can do?

You could clean it a few hours before you leave?

3 gallon, uncycled, with a filter. I was planning on changing the water the day before I left. I don't think I know anyone in my area that knows how to take care of bettas, though.
