I Visited This Facility

Camellia was excellent. It's a new building, but it's crowded and in a very congested area, which I didn't like. It was expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for. There's an outdoor pool and quite a few activities. I had lunch and it was good. The staff seemed very pleasant and very friendly.

Camellia at Deerwood gave the impression of a vacation resort. Everything's very shiny, very neat, and very polished. The rooms were almost like suites, instead of apartments. They had a huge swimming pool and a little library that had books, puzzle tables, computers, and there were residents playing cards.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I am very happy here at Camellia at Deerwood. It is a fantastic place. The dining area is very big with lots of tables, but I haven’t eaten there yet. They offer lots of physical activities and brain activities. We have sing-along at 3 o'clock. The residents are very friendly, and I love it here.

Description of Camellia at Deerwood


An active retirement community for seniors, Camellia at Deerwood provides all the services and amenities one could desire for a luxurious retirement lifestyle. In addition to all of our premium features, we are located just minutes away from shopping at St. Johns Town Center, medical services at Baptist Medical Center or St. Vincent's Medical Center, golf at the Jacksonville Golf & Country Club and even continuing education classes at the University of North Florida.

Camellia at Deerwood is managed by Leisure Care. A company that has been a leader in senior living for over 30 years, Leisure Care has become legendary for its commitment to quality services.

Featured Amenities

Residents of our community enjoy their stay in either a studio, one- or two-bedroom apartment, each outfitted with full kitchens, individually controlled heating and air-conditioning, and even basic cable TV service. We are a pet-friendly community, so residents are welcome to have their furry loved ones come along with them.

True restaurant dining is enjoyed each day in our elegant community dining room, while snacks and other treats are found in the bistro. To stay in shape, seniors can participate in a fitness program, enjoy strolling through our community grounds and take advantage of our PrimeFit gym. When looking to work on a personal project, our Creative Gallery is ideal for finding your inner artist.

Available Services

When a resident needs to go off site, we offer the added convenience of scheduled transportation via luxury town car or air-conditioned shuttle bus. To help guarantee a relaxing retirement experience, we provide all accommodations with weekly housekeeping services.

Although Camellia at Deerwood caters to Jacksonville's active, independent seniors, we know that everyone needs some help now and again. Rest assured, when the time comes, our Five-Star Assisted Living Services are available. We believe that assistance with these daily tasks is just one part of attending to a person's overall health and wellness. We also offer specialized memory care in a brand-new memory care neighborhood for residents with Alzheimer's and dementia.

Camellia at Deerwood takes all the hassle out of retirement and provides the ideal place to enjoy senior living at its best.
