The F.J. Davey Home, located at 733 Third Line East, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, is a three level 374 bed long-term care nursing home. The Home is designed to care for its residents in a homelike environment within 12 Resident Home Areas (RHA’s). Ten of the RHA’s accommodate 32 residents each and two of them are home to 27 residents each. Each RHA is designed so that when you enter through the "front door" you find yourself in the living room. The dining room and dedicated activity room are adjacent to this area. The resident’s bedrooms are found down two corridors with access to the Spa area from either hallway. The Charting Centre found on each RHA provides easy access to nursing staff by residents and their families.

Names for the Resident Home Areas were chosen by the residents and are depicted at the main entrance to each RHA and throughout by way of room identification and way finding signage. On each level you will find: Apple Orchard, Birch Lane, Cedar Grove and Driftwood Beach.

Each adjacent pair of RHA’s share a food service area, medication room, treatment room and are joined by a staff corridor.
