The Florentine

Enjoy independent community living in the heart of the Nicola Valley!

Levels Of Care

Our goal is to provide exceptional care and support while nurturing the spirit of each individual allowing one to age in one place with dignity.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living is for seniors who no longer feel comfortable or safe living alone, but do not need the kind of 24-hour nursing and medical care provided by nursing facilities. Assisted Living provides a combination of housing, personal services, and health care to individuals who can not or choose not to live alone and who need help with typical daily activities.

Health Services

The Florentine provides supervision/assistance with activities of daily living to ensure each resident's health and well being. This may include management of medications or personal care services (dressing, bathing, grooming, etc.).


What is Complex Care

Complex care is for seniors who require the safety of a secure unit with 24 hour staffing to assist those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia that need protection from wandering. The Florentine provides this service without providing an institutional setting. We strive to provide the residents with the most comfortable environment possible, so that they can age with dignity.

What is Respite Care

Respite care is also available to provide short-term care that helps the family take a break from the daily routine and stress that accompanies taking care of a loved one. Since not all families have the same needs, our respite care is flexible and geared towards each families needs.

Maintaining Quality Of Life

With Palliative Care

Receiving the news that a serious illness is incurable can be very jarring and life-altering. As such, The Florentine is here to provide the relief and specialized attention you desire with our palliative care in Merritt. With round-the-clock care, our team will provide a support system for you and your family, including such options as bereavement counselling and the management of distressing clinical complications.
