Corner Store

The Corner Store is operated by the Helping Hands Volunteers.  The store opens on a varied schedule and carries a variety of items for residents, day program, staff and family.  All proceeds from the store support resident and adult day program social programs.

There is a variety of lounge and program rooms in the Centre.  They are available for you to enjoy social time with family and friends.

Fire Procedures

The Davis Centre is required by legislation to conduct a Fire Drill on each shift every month.  While we do not wish to disrupt our residents or their visitors, the drill is designed to train and test staff’s preparedness in the case of a real fire emergency.

Instructions to Residents in Case of Fire

If you notice fire or smoke in your immediate area:

  1. Remain calm
  2. Leave area immediately
  3. Close door behind you if possible
  4. Call for help by
    • Pulling the fire alarm
    • Shouting for help
    • Using the call bell

If the fire alarm sounds:

  1. Remain calm
  2. Remain in your room with the door closed
  3. Turn off all electrical equipment in your room
  4. Keep telephone lines open
  5. Follow instructions given by staff or the Fire Department
  6. If away from your room, go with staff to a room or another safe location

The P.A system will be used to provide staff and residents with instructions that must be followed. Should the building need to be evacuated, our primary evacuation centre is:

Holy Family Church
Allan Drive,
Bolton, Ontario

General notes

The Davis Centre is well protected in the event of a fire. The entire building has an automatic sprinkler system, all rooms and corridors are monitored constantly by Heat or Smoke detectors. There are Pull Stations to activate the Fire alarm at each exit door throughout the building.

Fundraising & Donations

Fundraising events are held throughout the year with volunteers, staff, residents and day program.  These funds are used to benefit the residents and day program with social programs and community outings.  You can make a tax deductible donation to the Centre and direct the funds to a specific project on the “Wish List”.  Many family members have made memoriam donations and had their family member’s name placed on our “Memory Tree”.  All of these purchased items are considered non-budgetary and are to enhance the life of our clients at the Davis Centre.  We also accept donations “In Kind” valued over $250.00

Our “Wish List” is put together annually from suggestions by residents, adult day program, family, staff and volunteers.

Gift Policy

In keeping with the Region’s policy regarding gift-giving please note our staff is prohibited from accepting any personal gifts.  However, any consumable gifts which can be shared with everyone at the Centre are appropriate.  In addition, donations to a worthy cause would also be very appropriate.  Cards are also appreciated.

Hair Salon

Our hair salon, the “Bolton Beauties”, is open Mondays and Wednesdays for all residents.  Our hairdresser provides hairdressing and barber services on a fee-for-service basis.

Parking

The Davis Centre has limited parking, however, you may use the church lot next to our building, except Saturday after 2 p.m. and Sunday up to 3 p.m.  When using the church lot, please park along the fence only.  If you park on the Davie Centre property it is important that you park in the designated areas.  Please observe the fire route signs at all times as failure to do so is a by-law infraction and a ticket can be issued.

Do not park in the circle at the front entrance at any time.

Smoking

The Davis Centre is a smoke free environment.  Residents are prohibited from smoking within our Centre. 

Visiting Hours

We do not have visiting restrictions however, the main door is opened at 8:30 a.m. and locked at 9:00 p.m. daily.  A door bell is conveniently located at the main entrance for family and friends wishing to visit during the night.
