The Moneyist: I have driven 2 hours to visit my elderly parents twice a week for 10 years — shouldn’t I receive compensation?

Dear Moneyist,

My mom broke her hip about 10 years ago. At the time, I decided to visit my parents’ house twice a week to help out with shopping, errands and cook dinner, etc. (My sister would visit about once every six weeks.)

Through the years, the visits took a toll on me financially and physically. The round trip commute took two hours and I’d spend about seven hours there during each visit.

After about four years of twice-weekly visits, my sister asked if I could bring our father to a party she was having. I agreed and drove one hour to pick up my father and then another hour to bring him to my sister’s house.
