Our story

Maudcare is a tribute to the memory of our mother, Maud Steenbeek, who passed away in 2020. She was our teacher and mentor, an expat from the Netherlands, and a free spirit at heart who was always connected to the ocean, sailing, and exploring the farmlands as a child.

When she moved to Australia, she raised us in Warrandyte, a small town at the time, and instilled in us a deep connection to the land. As children, we spent countless hours climbing trees, exploring the surrounding national park, and observing the many different animals that inhabited our property. Maud taught us the value of patience and the importance of understanding how integral our natural world is. We learned that we can gain a multitude of life skills simply by sitting and observing the flora and fauna that surrounds us.

Maud was a true empath, always willing to help anyone in need. Her values and understanding of the natural world flowed into us. We learned the importance of connecting with the land, developing positive relationships with animals and plants, and understanding the magic of nature and its many benefits for our mental, physical, and overall wellbeing.

We are two brothers, Luke and Adam, and we want to deliver support differently. Our approach is holistic and fun, with a deep understanding of the benefits that nature and animals can provide. We have knowledge of produce and health, and we promote positive relationships with our bodies. We believe in harnessing an active lifestyle and its many benefits.

At the core of our work is the importance of connection – with each other, the community, and a deeper awareness of overall well-being and inclusion. We are committed to providing a supportive and engaging environment where individuals can thrive, develop new skills, and enjoy fulfilling social connections.

At Maudcare, we strive to honour our mother’s memory by creating a positive impact on the lives of the individuals we support, and we are dedicated to continuing this important work into the future.

Thank you for reading a little about our story.
