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.
The Yorktowne 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 a place to catch a continental breakfast if you aren’t an early riser, and enjoy fresh-baked cookies and popcorn daily. A diverse selection of reading material is provided in the library along with daily opportunities to work on a jigsaw puzzle.
Among all residents, the southern hospitality of our wrap-around porch is a favorite, complete with wicker chairs, hanging flower baskets and flowing conversation. Brookdale’s community gives residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another and enjoy each others company.
Residents have a wide variety of options to choose from when it comes to enjoying an active lifestyle. There are many opportunities for events, activities and lots of socializing, or simply enjoying leisure time. We love making day excursions on our 15-passenger, wheelchair-accessible bus, taking scenic drives along the coast to enjoy some of Florida’s finest beaches and State Parks.
Our Life Enrichment Director solicits input from the residents to develop a diverse social program that appeals to everyone. We offer a daily exercise class, Newcomers Social, cooking demonstrations, musical entertainers, lunch and shopping trips. Some favorite attractions include the Ya Habibi Belly Dancers, Spaghetti Bingo Night, Dan the Music Man, baseball games at Jackie Robinson Park, the Museum of Art and Science, and the Daytona Beach Dog Track.
Substantial investments in our culinary program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From Brookdale’s Culinary Arts Training Program for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery options, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining services. Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that offer satisfying entrees while supporting their health and well-being. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our Memory Care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.
As the population ages, more people are discovering assisted senior living and the peace of mind we offer. Our community’s approach focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.
Brookdale Yorktowne offers two levels of care:
We offer Assisted Living care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance. It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents, so we can understand their needs. Then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way.
We partner with our residents, recognizing their individual needs and preferences, and adjust services to meet their changing needs. So whether it’s a unique snack, the celebration of a favorite season or a lifelong interest, we value the privilege of knowing our residents and building relationships with them to create a truly personalized living experience.
With our exclusive personal service system, you can live your life the way you want with the right care at the right time, delivered by the right people. Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our Assisted Living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
Memory Care at Brookdale offers programs and a secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our staff members.

An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
