In Celebrating its 33rd Birthday, NAHC Asks Congress to Express Support for Home Care and Hospice
NAHC reflects on achievements, invites U.S. House members to make one-minute speeches on the House floor highlighting home care and hospice

Today, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) celebrates its 33rd Birthday by reflecting on its achievements and rededicating itself to the cause of advancing quality and cost-effective care.  As part of this occasion, NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris sent a letter this week to all 435 members of the U.S. House inviting them to use a rule allowing members to make one minute speeches on the House floor in order to express support for home care and hospice workers.

“We invite you to help us celebrate, not only our birthday, but the 30th anniversary of our meeting Mother Teresa on June 12th of this year. We are honoring her as our ideal role model.  We gave her our first Lifetime Achievement Award and, with her permission, named it after her,” wrote President Halamandaris in a letter to the U.S. House members.  “The purpose of this letter is to invite you to use the one minute rule to make a statement about your support of home care and hospice caregivers and the importance of the work they do.”

Happy Birthday, Lillian Wald!
NAHC celebrates the remarkable life of one of the pioneering nurses of home care and public health advocate

On March 10, 1867 Lillian Wald was born in Cincinnati, OH. Born to a prominent Jewish family in the community, Wald would eventually move to New York and become a powerful force in the burgeoning public health movement, as well as lay the cornerstone for the movement to provide high quality care to patients right in their homes. For all of her accomplishments, NAHC honors one of the founders and guiding forces of the home care and hospice movement that was very much created through her inspiration.

One of the most influential and respected social reformers of the 20th century, and founder of the Henry Street Settlement in New York City, Lillian Wald was a tireless and accomplished humanitarian. At age 22 Wald moved to Manhattan to attend the New York Hospital School of Nursing. It was a move that would forever change the facing of nursing, and the care of the sick, infirm, elderly and disabled from all walks of life.
