About Our Community
Daytona Beach Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care
Brookdale Yorktowne, formerly Emeritus at Port Orange, is a Daytona Beach Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s care community for seniors. It is perfectly situated between businesses and residences giving us a small-town feel with the conveniences of a metropolitan area. The dining and shopping choices are abundant with many within walking distance. Also, the Halifax Hospital group has a fine medical facility within 5 miles of our community. The property is located only 2 miles from the heart of Port Orange, close to Interstate 95 and State Road 415, making it far enough away to be out of the bustle and noise, yet close enough for convenience.
Our resident excursions on our 15-passenger, wheelchair-accessible bus include scenic drives along the coast to enjoy some of Florida’s finest beaches and State Parks. And with Daytona Beach only a 15 minute drive from Brookdale Yorktowne, our residents can easily access the Museum of Art and Science, the Daytona Beach Dog Track, the News Journal Entertainment Center and much more.
A Wonderful Selection
We offer a variety of senior apartments to choose from, including friendship suites or private apartments depending on your needs. All 85 apartments have wall-to-wall carpeting and window treatments. A majority of the apartments have views of our lush landscaping with mature trees, flowering hedges and pond. Additionally, all apartments are individually climate controlled and completely maintenance free.
Our community has ample common space for all residents to enjoy. Many entertainers set up in our cozy living room to share their talents and often use our baby grand piano. Our Port Orange Cafe is the place to catch a continental breakfast if you aren’t an early riser and to enjoy fresh-baked cookies and popcorn daily. And our library offers a diverse selection of reading material along with daily opportunities to work on a jigsaw puzzle. A favorite among all residents is the southern hospitality of our wrap-around porch, complete with wicker chairs, hanging flower baskets and flowing conversation. Our community gives residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another and enjoy each other’s company.
Brookdale Yorktowne is without a doubt one of the true flagship assisted living communities in Port Orange. We are very proud of our reputation for delivering excellence in care for both the assisted living and memory care neighborhoods. The key to our success comes from our staff members, who serve as extended family to each resident.

As we age, we don’t lose our taste for good food. And, retirement dining has never been so good.
