Dear Ms. Jackson:

It is with great interest that I submit my resume as an application for the position of Hospice Aide at the Covenant Hospice.

The caregiving positions I have held in the past three years have given me many opportunities to develop the expertise you require including: caring for elderly and patients, a high degree of enthusiasm, meal preparation, supervision of clients, and the ability to work independently. I believe this gives me the ability to excel in the Hospice Aide role at Covenant Hospice.

Some highlights of my qualifications:

• Demonstrated ability to assist patients with personal care such as transferring from bed to chair, hair/skin care, bathing assistance, oral hygiene, feeding, dressing, grooming, and helping with ambulation
• Highly skilled in light housekeeping, making and changing beds, dish washing, and delivering required supplies
• Hands-on experience in planning and preparation of nutritious meals and performing occasional household chores

My resume is enclosed for your review. I would welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss how my experience and skills would be beneficial for Covenant Hospice. I will call you next week to inquire about whether you need any additional information. In the mean time, I can be reached at (000) 999-3333 or via email at alia @ email . com.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
