Our Story

In 1970, Alex and Roberta “Bobbie” Jarlette purchased a long-term care home and moved their young family to Midland, Ontario. The conscientious couple, having always set high standards for themselves, imparted their own values and vision into the home, which would become the touchstone for commitment and care in the local community. Alex and Bobbie had begun a family journey that now spans over 50 years and continues to cultivate a standard of care that is compassionate and family-oriented in a warm and inviting atmosphere.

This approach, coupled with the family’s unwavering pursuit of excellence, impressed members of their new community. Their small long-term care home steadily attracted more and more Residents until expansion was inevitable. They never looked back, yet have never forgotten their vision, and have continued to strive to make an outstanding difference in the lives of others.

Bobbie and Alex's children have grown, with families of their own, and now also uphold the model their parents set in caring for the elderly. Together, with more than 2,000 employees, the Jarlette Family implements this attentive and compassionate standard, caring for over 1,600 Residents at their fourteen long-term care homes and eight retirement lodges.

At Jarlette Health Services we continue to proactively strive to make an outstanding difference in the lives of our Residents, their Family Members, Team Members and the communities that surround us.

"It was much more than a business to Bobbie and I; it became something of a family legacy. Two [now three!] generations of our family all play a critical part in continuing the work that we started in 1970. Our core philosophy of caring has extended our culture all the way to our vendors, partners and employees, and is one of the keys for our continued success."- Alex Jarlette, Founder
