HealthStar Home Health’s maintenance therapy program allows seniors to age in place and minimize their rate of decline. Maintenance therapy seeks to help patients maintain their current level of function as well as to remain independent as long as possible.
Aging in Place.
Striving to foster independence and prevent decline, Maintenance therapy helps patients age in place through Occupational Therapy, which emphasizes instructions on ADLs, and Physical Therapy, which emphasizes ambulation and mobility.
An initial course of maintenance therapy typically includes six to nine months of treatments spread out over a 60-day period.
HealthStar Home Health and it’s therapy partners offer in-home therapies to help keep you safe and active in your home. Our team of therapists will work with you to create individualized goals to get you on the road to recovery.
Patients who have a history of falls, or have a history of physical decline, but who are in stable condition are candidates for maintenance therapy.
Other patients who are at risk for function decline, including, but not limited to, neuromuscular diseases, progressive respiratory diseases, and dementia also benefit from maintenance therapy.
