Our Facility Management Team


Susan and Maja


Clinical Manager

As Clinical Manager of Aberleigh, Susan Villacorta has the privilege of leading the registered nursing team.  She immigrated to New Zealand in 2005 and came to work with Dementia Care NZ.  Susan loves her role at Aberleigh, looking after residents and leading her registered nursing team. She is committed to continuing to improve the services we provide to our residents, their families and the community of Blenheim.

Her main priority is to ensure that wonderful care is achieved for our residents.


Operations Manager

Maja Yu studied a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Commerce in Management in the Philippines before coming to work at Aberleigh as a caregiver in 2009 and became Operations Coordinator in 2012.

The most appealing thing for Maja in her present position of Operations Manager is seeing our vision and values become part of the way each staff member relates to residents and family members. Maja believes that by working in this way we all have the residents’ very best interests at heart and will achieve the best possible outcomes.
