Case Study


In June 2023, Myxa Care had a participant come to them in need of High Intensity Support with a crucial quick turn-around time.

Due to the complexity of their behaviour, their previous provided could no longer provide the tailored support they needed.

Within 2 weeks, Myxa Care were able to find a suitable property in their location of choice in regional Victoria, create a team of support workers to provide care 336 hours a week, undertake suitable training tailored to the individual for the support workers, and have the participant comfortable in their new home with their new supports.

6 months later, the individual is flourishing in their new environment. When they first came to Myxa Care they were non-verbal with complex behaviour. Small tasks such as going out into the community, shopping or public transport seemed like impossible mountains. With support from Myxa Care, this individual is now able to go to shopping centres with their family, catch public transport on the daily and go to cafes and order their own meal.

These achievements are due to consistent routine implementation, stable support workers routine and working in-line with therapist recommendations and strategies.
