Dear Mr/Ms/Mx [Contact Person’s Name],
I am writing to express my interest in the Care Assistant vacancy at Hamberly Residences. With proven experience providing medical assistance, companionship, and general living support to senior residents at a reputable care home, I would be an invaluable addition to your team.
For the past year, I’ve been working as a care assistant at West Lindsey Hospice, where I provide care and companionship to 30+ elderly residents, many of whom have become dear friends. In addition to providing a helping hand with meals, medication, personal hygiene, and recreation, I also coordinate visits and keep stock of medications and other inventory.
My ability to balance the administrative and care functions of this job attest to my excellent multitasking skills, which would be an asset to a larger care centre such as your own.
Here are some other reasons I would be an excellent fit for this role:
- Experience caring for patients with dementia and physically debilitative conditions
- Comfortable working nights and weekends
- Excellent telephone and front desk manner, receiving consistent positive feedback from staff and visitors
Furthermore, my natural empathy, patience, and strong work ethic allow me to form lasting bonds with residents, and I’m eager to make a difference in elderly people’s lives.
At your convenience, I would be delighted to further discuss how I can contribute to your team with an in-person interview. You can reach me at 07123 456 654 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
