Harvey Dix
Harvey Dix, Executive Director

Harvey and his wife Gail have called the York/Simcoe region home for most of their lives. Meeting on the job many years ago, marrying, and raising a family in this unique, small town environment has been a joy for Harvey and Gail. As volunteers and participants in many family activities throughout the years, the Dix family knows exactly what makes this community special.

Several years ago, Harvey and Gail experienced a loss when an elder family member grew ill and passed away. This first-hand experience with end of life care made it clear to the Dix’s that families are often at a loss when trying to manage such a difficult situation. They have continued to gather more information and work towards the dream of helping other families navigate elder care with the proper expertise and compassion.

Harvey has spent over two decades in automotive design, development engineering, and program management. His dedication to building long lasting relationships and helping others is evident throughout his career.

Gail began her career as a customer service representative before making the choice to stay at home and raise a family. Gail’s commitment to caring for people has always extended beyond the three children she has at home. Now that her children are in their teens, she is excited to reach out and bring that same compassion and kindness to others.

The Dix’s are proud to join the Retire-At-Home family and are focused on building a team of local caregivers committed to caring for those in their local region with the values and dedication Retire-At-Home offers.

Company History

Founded in 1994, Retire-At-Home has offered Personal Home Care services to individuals managing a wide variety of health concerns that affect the independent lifestyle they value. Our mission has always been to give individuals the opportunity to remain in their own homes and stay independent for as long as they choose.

We are proud Canadians and have a strong commitment to understanding how the Canadian health care system works. We are accredited by Accreditation Canada, which means that our Personal Home Care Services meet all national standards. Our goal is to go above and beyond in everything we do, which is evidenced by the many business ethics, quality of service, and community leadership awards our Retire-At-Home owners have won over the years.

Originally founded in Ottawa, Ontario by Irene Martin, RN, Retire-At-Home has worked to provide a full range of Personal Care Services for our clients.

Mrs. Martin founded the company with the understanding that individuals need comprehensive care in order to feel truly healthy. Healing takes time, but when both the physical and emotional needs of a patient are met, it speeds the path to wellness. Our main goal is to give our clients and their families a sense of peace once they turn their care over to us. We take the time to customize a holistic approach to wellness that is specific to the needs and concerns of those affected. Our aim is to establish long-lasting relationships, and we are committed to a compassionate and family-centered approach to care.

Our professionalism and dedication to Personal Home Care Services is clear, and we’ve spent the last 15 years building Retire-At-Home’s reputation so that every client knows we will give them our very best.
