Dear Mr. John:
I am writing to apply for Home Care Worker position at Sava Care. Providing high quality personal care is a challenge! I am eager to take this challenge by providing personal care to your clients. Comprehending the need to maintain clients’ dignity at all times, I take special care in managing their personal chores in a confidential manner which has made me popular with most of my employers.
As required, I am highly skilled in:
• Providing personal care and hygiene to clients
• Maintaining records relating to the service
• Promoting independence of clients
• Identifying and reporting incidents and risks
• Provide personal care; bathing, washing, shaving, oral hygiene etc
My competencies lie in my ability to chart-out specialized care plans for my wards and to employ these plans with the best of care and consideration. I have some medical background which helps me in administering medication and IVs when needed. Previously working in a facility that catered to people with physical disabilities, I am conversant with assisting with physical therapy and exercises as well.
With my ability to organize resources and time based on the individual needs, I consider myself an excellent choice for the position of a Home Care Worker at Sava Care. I’ll call your office next week to ask for a time when we can meet and discuss how I can be a positive addition to your facility.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
