Maintenance Therapy

Maintenance Thearpy

Fostering independence.

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.
