Re: Caregiver, advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Smith:

As a dedicated caregiver to elderly residents of assisted living and memory care communities, I am an excellent match to the caregiver opening posted on Monster.

Since 2014 I have worked as a caregiver for DEF Company, where I assist residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease with daily living needs. I work under the guidance of a PA and RN to help implement and support resident-care plans, which include providing services to aid in memory care, physical care and psycho-emotional care optimizing residents’ quality of life.

Deeply committed to treating my elderly clients with dignity and respect, my goal is to win their trust and alleviate any embarrassment or anxiety they may feel when needing assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming or other personal care.

I also excel at planning creative activities customized to resident needs and physical/mental abilities. Examples include pet visits from a nearby animal shelter, game nights, outdoor concerts, card tournaments, art and yoga classes, spa days and makeover sessions.

It can be challenging at times, but I truly enjoy working with elderly residents. Though I strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the residents, the ongoing lessons I have learned from them have in return made a lasting impact in my life.

If ABC Company agrees that my positive, balanced approach to elder care would add value to your program, please contact me to set up a meeting. Thank you.
