I am writing about the generous services provided to older low income city residents and the lack of similar services for everyone else. Certainly we need to care for low income people. But when you get old you need more help even if you have more income. I have lived in Alexandria since 1969 along with my husband and have paid endless taxes. I am now largely homebound with Parkinson's disease. My elderly husband is my caregiver right now. But if he gets sick too we may both need some of the services that low income residents receive. We possibly could pay for these services on a sliding income scale but not if the services are too expensive. Does anyone in the various senior agencies discuss this topic? I hope that some attention will be given to this gap in services for longtime Alexandria residents who have supported the city through our taxes throughout our lives.
