Paula Stenner

Facility Manager


Born and raised in South Taranaki, Paula commenced enrolled nursing in 1981 at New Plymouth Hospital. In 1995, she had the opportunity to complete the Registered Nursing bridging course at Taranaki Polytechnic.

She relocated to Melbourne for further work opportunities and this is where she spent 19 years in the aged care sector. When she returned to Taranaki in 2015 to be near family, she was quite sure she wanted to be back working in the aged care industry again where she regards working with the elderly a real privilege.

Paula is passionate about residents having a link with their community to give them self-value and a feeling of contribution.

When she is not working, Paula enjoys attending cultural events, playing the ukulele and piano and walking her Western Highlander along the beautiful coastal walkway.
