Do you work and care for Seniors? Adult care specialists also need cover letters to apply for jobs at a nursing home or private facilities.
Dear Mr. Andrews,
My name is Thora Harden, and I am interested in the elderly care assistant vacancy at your facility. I am comfortable caring for the elderly and have good experience relating to their daily needs. I took care of a 93 year-old woman, Mrs. Robertson for 5 years, she had Alzheimer's until her unfortunate passing due to complications from her illness. I do have a proper reference from her family if you need such documentation.
I assisted Mrs. Robertson by meeting her day-to-day needs which consisted of cooking, cleaning, physical therapy, personal hygiene, grooming, bathing and dressing. I also help administer her medication (8 types at intervals and on a strict schedule and proper dosage). There also stringent rules on how to go about her personal care and who to first call during a medical emergency. But I made it a point, in her frail state that Mrs. Robertson was always comfortable and warm.
I am the type of person who has a lot of patience and I treat others the way I would want to be treated, so working with a senior citizen or person with disabilities in anyway, comes naturally to me. I find this line of work to be very rewarding because it focuses on helping others, which is my ideal line of work. I am also single, my family lives in another country and I'm available to work as a live-in caregiver as needed.
If my resume interests you, please give me a call. I am available for an interview at your convenience.
