Dear Ms. Tammy Silva,
I am very interested in the position of Elderly Caregiver at Right at Home, Inc.
I am a certified nurse with experience working part-time with the elderly in an assisted-living facility very similar to yours. During this time, I learned a lot about the special needs of the elderly and I have the ability to provide professional but courteous service.
I have nursing skills to provide the basic health care services such as checking vitals and I know what signs to look for that could indicate a problem. I can lay out the medication for the patients and check to make sure they are taking it correctly. I also have the stamina to assist the individuals by helping them in and out of bed, getting dressed, bathing and with their meals.
I have the flexibility to work within your facility or to travel to the patient’s homes. In addition to helping patients with their daily activities, I also have the ability to perform light housekeeping duties such as vacuuming, washing dishes, doing laundry, changing bedding, preparing healthy meals and monitoring the patients to ensure they are eating their meals.
I have outstanding time management skills with the ability to multi-task to take care of all required duties. I also have a valid driver’s license, so I can run errands, shop and take the patients to and from doctor visit. I have lots of patience and I enjoy talking with and providing companionship for these patients.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon.
