Rona is the pastry chef here and she is amazing!! Everything we have eaten that she has made has been wonderful. In the photo is an example…her homemade chocolate chip cookies. I don’t think you can find any that are better than this!

Discovery village is the best. They take good care of my grandma really well. They go above and beyond attending her needs. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to retire. 🏼🏼🏼

We visited Discovery Village at Deerwood for the Festival of Wreaths event and were impressed with their community, friendly staff and abundance of amenities! If you're looking for 55+ Independent Living, this is the place you need to check out!

My father is in memory care at Discovery. As has been mentioned, there have been many changes in administration. Hopefully, that will change. The new executive director is doing a great job. There are many activities available to engage the residents. Caring for dementia patients, is a very difficult job. The CNA’s employed do a great job. They treat the residents as family. There is genuine concern for the residents.The food at Discovery looks very good. MyFather enjoys it.Like any other place, I wish therewere more employees to lighten the workers load. I highly recommend this facility forthose with needed care.

My father has been in memory care for about a year at Discovery Village at Deerwood. They went through a lot of staff changes in the course of a year (and we've had our ups and downs), but I am happy to report the new Executive Director and Memory Care Director are excellent. The MC director has recently started implementing monthly family gatherings. They just hosted a "Santa and Hot Coco" event that was adorable. The staff and residents had a blast dancing to Christmas music and meeting Santa. There are also many excellent caregivers that never complain and have a great attitude about their work (which is a very difficult job). It was one of the hardest decisions of my life to place dad in a facility, but I can rest assured that he is safe and well cared for. Thank you Discovery!

As a community partner working in senior living in Jacksonville, I enjoy referring Discovery Village at Deerwood Assisted Living & Memory Support. Having a resource and team I trust recommending to families allows our greater Jacksonville community to have multiple options that meets their personal needs.

This facility is lovely. Our tour was conducted by Sondra Sharp. She is very knowledgeable and helpful to us! The apartments were beautiful.

Sondra Sharp did an amazing job preparing me and my mother for the move to memory care. Discovery Village is a great neighborhood and Sondra could not have done a more complete and better job to guide us through this hard time. Thank you to her and the staff.

I had the pleasure of attending the fun “Shamrocked” event yesterday and was very impressed! It’s so important our loved ones have a joyful social life as well as top quality physical & mental care! I was invited out by Sondra, so naturally I sought her out upon arrival. She kindly provided an informative tour of your lovely clean community. I must say Sondra’s passion & enthusiasm for excellent elderly care is clear; which I’m sure comes from her first hand knowledge with her own mother. It’s so nice to talk with someone who can really relate! I will definitely consider this community when the time comes and will refer to my family & friends to Sondra as well!
23:05 23 Mar 23
I have know Sondra Sharp for a long time and dropped in to see her sweet mama. Sondra has been at this a long time and is the most amazing and loving person who truly cares for the residents. She showed me around the facility and I was very impressed!

We really enjoyed the tour of Discovery Village at Deerwood. Sondra Sharpe was so nice, allowed us to take our time, and answered all our questions. A couple of days later, they hosted my mother and sister for lunch and a tour for my mother. Mom said the food was good and everyone there was very friendly.

What a little hidden gem in the Deerwood area. I met with Deborah Northrup, Senior Lifestyle Counselor, to take a tour of this facility and what a beautiful place! Deborah was very knowledgeable of the entire process of helping out with placement of our senior loved ones.

It’s very stressful, moving to an independent living or assisted living community as an octogenarian. After having an unpleasant experience at another facility, my mother-in-law opted to move to Discovery At Deerwood. On her move-in date January 3 she was welcomed by the entire Discovery staff.All were very welcoming, including residents , who made an effort to make her feel accepted. That’s very telling of how the occupants feel about their community. Day 1 she felt this was home.Particular mention should be paid to Miranda the lifestyle coordinator who greeted us on arrival, who literally, and figuratively, held my mother-in-law by the hand, and remained with her for the majority of that day. She patiently answered every question regardless of how trivial.Thank you all for your kindness and commitment to the community.Robert Lalli

A friend of mine, Sondra, is a Senior Lifestyle Counselor at Discovery Village at Deerwood. I popped in to say hello and Sondra showed me around. I must say I was very impressed with the building and the amenities. The staff and residents seemed very happy. My mother is 86 years old and based on my visit, I would choose Discovery for her hands down!

This Thanksgiving one of the things I’m thankful for is that God blessed our family in guiding our decision to choose Discovery Village at Deerwood for my father’s new home. Just to be clear, making a decision on where your parent is going to live and who’s going to take care of them is very stressful. To give you background, my father suffered 2 strokes on 7/31. He went from the hospital to a rehab hospital and then a skilled nursing facility. With each move it became clear that dad would not be able to return to his home and live independently as he had. The main reason for that was the regimen of meds that he needed and for the first time in his life that included insulin shots four times a day. My search for a place for dad started with 7 pages of facilities on the First Coast of Florida. Can you say overwhelming! A friend of the family who had to place their mother in a facility recommended a local consultant, Mike Saffy with SilverLink Consulting, who was another blessing that I’m thankful for. I had narrowed the list to 10 facilities and he helped me narrow that to 5. After researching them I chose 3 to personally visit. Ironically, Discovery was the first of the 3 I visited and the next two, while nice, didn’t meet the bar that Discovery set. Not that cost should be the most important factor in choosing a place since as the saying goes “you get what you pay for”, we were pleasantly surprised that the cost was actually the lowest of the three to get the level of care we needed for dad. As with most tours in the world you expect everyone presenting to be on their best behavior and game. I can tell you that Discovery was, but more importantly that same level of professionalism has been maintained since we moved in to the facility. Whether you need to speak to the executive director, the head chef or the the director of maintenance, they all make themselves available and handle your needs. The medical staff has made sure on numerous occasions to track down dad and make sure he’s getting his meds. It’s been almost 3 months since dad moved in and I’ve lost track of the number of times he’s thanked me for finding such a great place to live. His days are filled with as many activities as he wants to participate in and he’s made a bunch of new friends, both residents and staff. Nothing in life is perfect, but I believe Discovery Village strives to be as close to that as they can. Right after dad moved in they started having problems with the cleaning crew doing the job to the level they and the residents expected. They replaced them and it’s been excellent since that time. I could go on praising Discovery, I think from what I’ve already said, I’m thankful for them and would recommend them to anyone who asks.

As the America Legion Riders Director for Mandarin Post 372. We did a benefit ride for Priject Vet Relief. Discovery Village was our first stop. Here we replace two US flags. One was folded with honor including a bugle. This flag was presented to the oldest vet in the the aacitiy. It was such a great honor to be there .We had to come back for a longer stay a really meet the residents. This will not be the last time we schedule a time.
