Betty Jordan
Receptionist - Water's Edge of Lake Wales


 My name is Betty Jordon. I’m a young lady at the age of 67 years old. I’m a mail carrier, receptionist, caregiver, etc. I’ve been a caregiver all my life but it truly showed when I started working at Water’s Edge of Lake Wales in 2009. I started and remain a part time receptionist but I find myself there at least 16 hours a day. I met so many residents and I grew to love them very much. I assist over 30 residents aged 68-95 with daily needs including personal hygiene, bathing, dressing. I also take care of household activities such as grocery shopping, preparing meals, cleaning, and managing finances. I help them in every possible way I can. You might ask, why? I am a compassionate and empathetic person by nature, and have no problem connecting with people from all walks of life. I really enjoy helping others and making a difference in other people’s lives. The most rewarding and fulfilling thing for me is when I am able to make another person’s life easier or more pleasant, and I hope to continue that in my role as a caregiver!
