Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) recently released a video wishing Senator Bob Dole a happy 90th birthday. Mr. Dole served his state of Kansas as a Senator from 1969 – 1996 where he became the longest-serving Republican leader during his tenure. Mr. Dole has also been both the Republican vice-presidential and presidential nominee during his illustrious career.
Since his retirement, Senator Dole has remained active in politics and policy – having been appointed by President George W. Bush in 2007 to co-chair a commission looking into problems at Walter Reed Medical Center as well as continuing to be a tireless advocate for home care and hospice. He also serves as the Chairman of the Board of the Caring Institute.
When asked what caring means to him, Mr. Dole stated that, “to me it’s pretty obvious. It’s looking out for somebody else… If people didn’t care, what a society we’d have. It doesn’t take much effort… It’s so easy to care for somebody else, and most Americans do it.”
Senator Dole is, “one of the greatest human beings that I have ever met,” said NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris. “He has been a fierce advocate for home care.”
