Donate to Culpepper Garden
Our residents were once middle-income professionals — teachers, government workers, librarians. They are our friends and our neighbors — the kind of people who make Arlington such a special place to live. But rising costs in the Washington, DC, area and longer lifespans have undermined their resources.
With an average monthly income of $1,486, many independent living residents often have little or no money each month to pay for medical services, toiletries and other basic necessities.
The situation is even more severe for our assisted living residents. Costs for supportive services, such as help with eating, bathing, walking, dressing and administration of medications, currently average $1,928 per month. Additionally, rent for a one bedroom apartment is $256 and meals are $539 per month. These costs alone exceed, by $769, our resident’s average monthly income of $1,954. These monthly expenses have not even taken into account their individual dental and medical care needs, premiums, co-pays, deductibles, prescription drugs nor personal care items.
Culpepper Garden — and You — Bridge the Gap
Culpepper Garden established the Tom Floyd Aging with Dignity Fund in 1993 to help make up the difference between the cost of care and available funds. When residents cannot afford rent and other basic needs, even with government subsidies, additional financial support from companies, foundations and individuals ensures that our seniors have a safe, secure place to live and are not forced to move away from their family and friends.
With your help, we can make sure that no resident will ever have to leave his or her home in Culpepper Garden because of lack of funds.
