Honoring Nelson Mandela who Taught the Value of Freedom From the First Day of Life Until the Last

Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice joined millions of people across the globe in lamenting the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

“All of us mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela, who was a singular human being and one of the finest examples of God’s work,” said Halamandaris. “While we grieve this loss which impoverishes the entire human race, it is equally appropriate that we express our gratitude for the gift of his life, which was lived for others.”

“President Barack Obama aptly compared Mandela with Abraham Lincoln, our most respected heroic figure, by saying, ‘Now he belongs to the ages.’ I myself would paraphrase what Dr. Albert Einstein said on hearing of the death of Mahatma Gandhi: ‘Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.’”

NAHC Vice Chair Lucy Andrews Emphasizes the Impact that the Companionship Rule will Have on Public Programs such as Medicare and Medicaid During Capitol Hill Testimony

On November 20, Lucy Andrews, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), testified before the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, in a hearing titled “Redefining Companion Care: Jeopardizing Access to Affordable Care for Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities.”

In her testimony, she expressed NAHC’s opposition to the new Department of Labor rule (The Rule) eliminating the companionship services exemption of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The Rule essentially eliminates home care services from being exempt from requiring overtime compensation. To see the full text of the Rule, click here.
