De Paul Manor Estate
Completed in 2010, De Paul Manor Estate is a retirement community on the Gold Coast that is owned and operated by Ozcare and is part of a broader ready-made community along Edmund Rice Drive that encompasses the Mary Immaculate Church, primary and secondary schools, child care and the award winning De Paul Villa Aged Care facility. There is a focus on positive relationships and networks that offer many opportunities for interaction, activities and social times within the Community. Although De Paul Manor Estate is located within a Christian environment there is no requirement for intending residents to have any particular religious affiliation.
Founded on a spirit of friendship and belonging our vision at De Paul Manor Estate is “taking care of retirement” and in doing so we offer lifestyle, companionship and security for people 65 years and over in a unique, caring community. With a multi denominational demographic, De Paul Manor Estate allows residents on the Gold Coast, should they choose, to seek enhanced pastoral and spiritual opportunities within the wider context of the parish and local community.
The friendly team at De Paul Manor Estate take pride in being part of a caring and dynamic group who are dedicated to the continued happiness and well being of their residents. Along with the daily management of the village, the team assists residents in organising events, social occasions and generally making life easier for them in their retirement years. Experienced nursing and catering staff from De Paul Villa are also on hand to assist – when necessary – and residents can seek pastoral support from within the Parish community if required.
