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!
