Dear Mr. Gates:
Your mission statement ‘to accord our clients to the dignity their longevity demands’ inspired me as I visited your website yesterday while viewing your vacant positions for caregivers. Consequently, I am writing this letter to apply for a Caregiver position at Home Instead.
My profile is finely tuned with your mentioned job requirements:
|Experienced in providing personal care to clients with dignity.
|4+ years of hands on experience in providing personal care to clients including bathing/feeding assistance and maintenance of personal hygiene ensuring dignity.
|Efficient in transporting and accompanying clients to outside home locations.
|Track record of transporting clients safely to directed locations and accompanying them during hospital visits, communicating effectively with the doctor.
|Effective rapport building, social involvement and interpersonal skills.
|Demonstrated ability to build rapport, provide high quality companionship and involve clients in various community based social activities.
Considering the percentage of non English speaking clients and staff members at Home Instead, I believe my multilingual ability will also prove to be a great asset in the said role. Skilled in housekeeping tasks, adept at medicine administration as per chart, able to carry out laundry and prepare meals, I believe your clients will find my services highly satisfactory.
I look forward to having an interview with you in order to further elaborate the relevance of my competencies in terms of job requirements. I shall call you within a week to implore possibility of the same.
