Dear Ms. White:

I am writing to submit my resume for the position of Resident Assistant which was advertised on your website yesterday. The job description you provided in the advertisement is fairly compatible with my experience, compassionate nature and temperament. Along with my zeal and keenness to work for elderly and demonstrated ability to communicate effectively with residents, families and staff, I am certain in my ability to become a key member of your organization.

As a Resident Assistant with Brightview Senior Living Inc, I worked closely with nursing personnel to assist residents in their day by day activities and upheld the standards of quality. Particularly, I am highly skilled in assisting elderly and disabled persons with everyday activities such as bathing, dressing, positioning, grooming, and mobility. In addition, I am very expert in keeping appropriate care records, reporting any changes in resident’s conditions, offering dining services support and interacting with guests in a specialized way at the same time as ensuring resident safety and pleasure.

I look forward to contributing to an energetic, growing organization like Emeritus Senior Living. I will call you within the next week to answer any questions you may have and talk about the position in more detail. If you need any additional information in the interim, I can be reached at [Contact #].

Thank you for your time and consideration.
