Get to know us, Part 2

Here at Retire At Home, we are very fortunate to have a dedicated staff who looks after our clients.

At the head of our nursing staff, we have Sr Maricel Potgieter, the Nursing Director at Retire at Home.


Maricel Potgieter completed her degree in Nursing at Tshwane University of Technology in 2010. Her Community service year was done in the oncology ward at Tshwane Hospital. After that, she began working back her bursary to Life health care at the Wilgers hospital, starting in the Oncology ward. After six months she moved to theatre and soon developed a passion for assisting there.


After having two children, the long hours that accompany theatre nursing prompted a move to a more informal nursing environment - Pick 'n Pay Primary Health clinics- that would allow for more time to spend with her family. It is during her time there that she met Neil and Jo in 2019 and was introduced to Retire at Home. A career at Retire At Home provided an exciting opportunity to apply her passion for people and her experience in the Nursing field, to the business world.


Her absolute passion for her job is evident in her relationships with her patients and her staff, and the way she fulfils her role as Nursing director.


We are grateful to have Sr Maricel as part of our team here at Retire At Home.
