regenerative care (maintenance)
Explanation:
The term itself sounds unlogical, because maintenance is always from an existing condition onwards. But Ernst has:
Rückbildung f, Regeneration f / regeneration.

Regenerative care might be a possibility, because some agents can for instance regeneraate (restore) plastics or rubber, so that they remain supple or do not crack.
