NAHC President Val J. Halamandaris Has Passed Away

Posted: July 27, 2017

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice, of which the Home Care Association of Colorado is an affiliate member, announced the passing of its president, Val J. Halamandaris. HCAC recognizes and honors Halamandaris' long service to our profession and sends its sympathies to NAHC and the Halamandaris family. 


It is with great sadness that the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) announces the passing of its president, Val J. Halamandaris.

Often referred to as the “leader of the last great civil rights movement”, Val worked tirelessly for 50 years to improve the lives and secure the rights of America’s elderly and infirm. A self-described “small-town boy who came to Washington, D.C. many years ago, full of ideals,” Val responded to President John F. Kennedy’s call to public service by joining the staff of Senator Frank E. Moss (D-UT) and enrolling in George Washington University and then Catholic University Law School.

Val was quickly drawn to the issues facing senior citizens with the U.S. Senate Committee on Aging and was instrumental in crafting the landmark Medicare and Medicaid programs, including the home health benefit. In 1967, Val and Senator Moss created the “Moss Amendments,” which set minimum federal standards for nursing homes.
