Stavros Options Counselors will work with anyone who wants to get out of a nursing home or stay in their own home by helping to find home care (including PCA services), equipment, and supports.
Stavros is a member of the Pioneer Valley Aging and Disability Resource Consortium which consists of WestMass Elder Care, Greater Springfield Senior Services, Highland Valley Elder Service Center, and Franklin County Home Care Corporation. The PVADRC is part of a statewide initiative dedicated to giving people with disabilities and the elderly information to make informed decisions about where they want to live and receive services.
Stavros helps families stay together by providing the needed support to remain independent and living at home.
Children with Disabilities should have the same opportunities to play and learn as other kids. Stavros helps parents make that dream come true.
Teenagers with disabilities should be thinking about their futures. Our Transition to Adulthood program can help them achieve their goals.
We are proud to announce that we have joined the Residual Fundraising Program with Viridian Energy, a socially responsible retail energy company that supplies competitively priced green energy in your area.

The top changes include:
Between now and January 1, 2017, any MassHealth member whose current PCA(s) work more than 40 hours (PCA overtime) will be allowed to continue use of PCA overtime.
Between now and October 22, 2016, every PCA consumer using overtime must submit the PCA Overtime Request Form. If you have already submitted a form, you do not need to do anything else at this time.
If your PCA(s) works more than 40 hours per week, and you have not yet submitted a form, please do so by October 22, 2016. This is important in order for MassHealth to get good information about your particular situation. MassHealth will send letters to all members who submit a PCA Overtime Request form confirming approval through at least December 31, 2016. The letter will provide a specific expiration date.
