Last month, Whispering Winds Village recognized maintenance worker Joe Betteridge for his 10 years of service at the Pincher Creek retirement community. Known for his compassion and kindness toward residents and staff alike, Joe is invariably keen on helping wherever he can.
“He just means everything to us, and we are very lucky to have him as part of our team,” says Eileen Woolf, community manager at Whispering Winds.
Joe is the village’s Swiss army knife, capable of fixing just about any mechanical issue staff or residents are facing, whether it’s a broken vacuum, a faulty fridge, or really any other appliance. According to Eileen, Joe is the kind of person who is hard-pressed to say no when someone needs help, even if this gets him in trouble from time to time.
His dedication to supporting the retirement community does not go unnoticed, and is part of the reason Eileen feels the village has the best staff amongst Golden Life retirement communities.
“He’s a ‘MacGyver.’ He can fix things that I would normally have to call someone in to fix. He’s so well rounded, great with staff and with residents, and we can’t thank him enough for everything he does,” she says.
Whispering Winds extends its gratitude to Joe and thanks him for his service. Congratulations, Joe!
