Modern Senior Living In the Heart of Merritt, BC

Our mission to preserve the principles of independence, privacy, dignity, choice and home are key to the success of this community. We strive to provide the highest quality of service for seniors while never forgetting that each resident is a person, a person with individual and changing needs. Our independent living program offers assistance with the activities of daily living. Our friendly and professional staff members are available to make residents stay enjoyable. Our residents stay physically and mentally fit with regular wellness, walking, balance and exercise classes.

The Florentine was meticulously designed with my family in mind, and it is my sincerest hope that our beloved visitors will find just as much joy and comfort in this exquisite facility.
