We are a "SCENT FREE" environment

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.

2024 UPDATES (Feb 20th)

Families and Visitors

We have had some challenges over the last 10 days, with COVID outbreaks increasing across a number of Resident Home Areas. At this time we have 7 units in outbreak. We would strongly encourage you to call the unit you are visiting to see what their status is.

As well, we would remind all persons to please NOT come to the home if you have any symptoms of a respiratory tract infection, scratchy throat, malaise, runny nose, or just not feeling yourself.

For those persons who are not essential visitors we ask that you consider delaying your visit by 5 or 6 days. This will be helpful in stopping infection transmission across resident home areas.

We encourage everyone to diligently practice hand hygiene and to ensure their mask if fully covering their nose and mouth while moving through the building. If you can likewise encourage your loved one to actively clean their hands prior to and after touching anything it would be very helpful.


Masking: Caregivers and Visitors

• With winter upon us, we have seen an increase in all respiratory infections (Influenza, RSV, Parainfluenza, Covid). Accordingly, Masks are required in all areas of the home at all times unless you are dining with your loved one or in the resident room with the resident.

• If you are not feeling well, or have any new symptoms of a cough, runny nose, stomach upset, headache or fever; please do not come to the home until your symptoms have been absent for 48 hours

• In outbreak situations, or if a resident is on additional precautions, all individuals are required to comply with masking and other personal protective equipment requirements (PPE) as directed by the outbreak management team and the local public health unit.
