Occupational Therapy at Home

About Us

Max Health and Wellness provides at-home therapy solutions to promote health and create wellness and self-care experiences for our clients.

Who We Are - And What We're Not

We believe that there are many therapeutic services that everyone could benefit from and which we can provide to you in the comfort of your own home. These allied health and  wellness services – many of which are paid for through insurance (Medicare or private) – are a way of receiving holistic care and benefit from the experience, all while in the comfort of your own home.

For example:

  • Imagine a facial and therapeutic massage being provided to a person with dementia, all while they are listening to meditation music.

  • Think of how convenient it would be to have one of our licensed professionals come to your home at your convenience and provide physical therapy or prepare your nutritious and delicious meals. Wouldn’t that make your life easier and better?

Lead Staff

Beth Sholom

Beth Sholom is the Founder and CEO of Max Health and Wellness. She has a long history of caring about and for the elderly community because of her experiences with her mother working for 35 years as an assistant to the director of a nursing home in Brooklyn, as well as having both of her grandparents living in a nursing home.

Beth’s grandparents inspired her to always desire great care for seniors and has been working and advocating for seniors since 1988. She earned a degree in Special Education from the Pennsylvania State University and a juris doctorate from Hofstra University. Beth became an elder care attorney to advocate for both the elderly and people living with handicaps before starting a home care agency in 2003.

Her passion has always been to ensure that her clients receive better care than her grandparents had, and she works tirelessly to make sure that happens. Her motto and belief has always been and will always be that she (and her staff) will care for your family as we would our own!

For years, Beth has “thought outside the box” and imagined a company that could supplement the in-home care that many seniors need. In-home care provides assistance with the activities of daily living, but many seniors are homebound for a variety of reasons: their physical condition, not being able to drive, mobility concerns, or because they believe that being at home (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic) was the safest place to be.

During the pandemic, Beth made the decision to launch Max Health and Wellness. She envisioned the need to provide additional in-home services to those who need them, specifically therapeutic solutions to create wellness and self-care experiences for seniors and others. These services will range from clinical therapy services such as physical, occupational and speech therapy, mental health counselling, non-medical massage therapy and reflexology, nutritional counseling, and at-home salon/spa services such as therapeutic facial and hair styling.

Beth’s goal is that all of the health and wellness services offered by Max Health and Wellness will MAXIMIZE the quality of life and well-being of seniors throughout the state of New Jersey. She looks forward to having you experience our concierge therapeutic services and treatments.
