Individuals working to look after the elderly people need to be experienced in handling problems associated with age. This may include both health and psychological problems prevalent at this age.
However, some people just have it in them to be able to look after people of advanced age even without the benefit of experience.
The following letter can be used as a sample if you are applying for a position in aged care. Have a look!

Dear Mr. Hopegood:
Looking after people who have left their best years decades behind can be a difficult job for most people. As for me, I revel in looking after the aged with a passion that comes from knowing that life is at its most delicate and requires looking after with compassion. I am interested in applying for a position as an Aged Care Worker with Sava Senior Care as I truly believe in my ability to work well in this regard.
As a fresh and enthusiastic high school graduate, I am quite excited at the possibility of working at this position in a professional capacity. Working to serve the aged is not just a duty for me; it is a passion that is derived from years of looking after my ailing grandparents and the satisfaction that came with it is enough for me to want to do this for a lifetime.
As required, I have a considerable knowledge of managing both personal grooming needs for the elderly and assisting them with daily activities and even healthcare. Furthermore, I was somewhat trained in creating and implementing activities for them that will help them both physically and psychologically.
My resume is enclosed with this letter for your review. I would like to meet you in person so I can discuss my aspirations with you and the possibility of contributing to your mission. I can be reached at (002) 222-2222 if you need any further information from me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
