Sava Senior Care
975 Geiger Street
Lexington, KY 42322
Dear Mr. Maxwell:
By virtue of my education in Sociology and my experience at an assisted living facility, I feel that I am well qualified for the position of a Senior Living Assistant at Sava senior Care. Being part of a winning team which is committed to great social cause is important to me and I would like to offer my services for this position.
In past, I was directly involved in the committee that designed and implemented interactive activities for residents keeping in mind each individual’s physical and mental state. Since I am certified in both CPR and First Aid, I am comfortable with following proper procedures in emergency situations as is eminent in a facility of this type. Owing to the fact that I have looked after my own grandfather for seven years, I understand the need for allowing and encouraging residents to do as much as possible on their own in order to encourage independence.
The enclosed resume highlights my experience and skills in being able to handle this job appropriately. I intend to call your office on Monday so we can decide on a mutually convenient time to meet. I may be contacted at (111) 111-1111 or (email) if you need any more information that my resume does not provide. I look forward to meeting you in person very soon.
Thank you for your consideration.
