Staff Profile

  • Susanne Harzer

    Business and Care Manager

    Susanne has been with Oceania in various management roles for the last six years.

    She qualified as RN in 1996 and has worked in aged care for most of her career. At present she is studying towards a MBA. Susanne believes that a care facility can be an extended family.
    “One of the misconceptions about aged care is that our residents live isolated lives, away from their loved ones and stuck in a place out of sight for the community. The reality at Wharema is very different. We are proud to engage families and friends in all aspects of our day-to-day life at the facility. Our staff is part of the Whareama family, working with the residents not for them, therefore encouraging independence and dignity at all times.”
