Training focused on meeting needs and reducing distress
Maybo training develops carers' understanding of dementia and changing behaviours with a focus on specific models of communication and de-escalation for people with cognitive impairment.
We focus on positive approaches, communication and safer ways of doing common tasks such as providing personal care.
Our human rights-based approach to training aims to ensure people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as ensuring their individual and unique needs are understood and being met, helping to prevent distress and improve quality of life.
In some more challenging contexts, we provide unique low arousal physical support skills that are consistent with positive care values. It builds confidence and reduces risk for all involved.
Our focus is not simply on teaching safer methods, it is on reducing restrictive practices and aligns to the Australian Aged Care Quality Standards.
