I'm an RN and I have been offered an opportunity to fly as a companion with an elderly resident. His family is transferring him to a LTC center out of state and asked me to fly with along with him. He is stable and there are no apparent acute health issues to be concerned with.
His family will be paying for my round trip flight. My heart tells me not to charge for my time--after all, they're paying enough for both tickets! However, they insist to pay me for my time.
From the time I leave my house to the time I return home, it should be just over 14 hours in all.
Has anyone had experience with this? Any suggestions on how much I should charge?
Any help is appreciated.
