Proving to a prospective employer that you are worth every penny that will be spent in hiring and training you is a difficult task. However, this is exactly what you have to do as an entry level personal care assistant. When you have no experience in hand, it is difficult to convince hiring manager about your abilities.
When an employer sees that you have provided him with the exact information that he was in actuality looking for, he will jump up at the chance of meeting with you. Here is a cover letter sample that you can use to do this:

Dear Mr. Day:
As an individual who is inherently compassionate and has great respect for life, I pose as an excellent choice to hire at the position of a personal care assistant at Right At Home. Providing bedside and ambulation care is my passion. I am eager to work patiently with people who may not be able to handle their most personal needs such as bathing and toileting on their own.
I believe that the work of a personal care assistant is truly rewarding from all aspects – one gets to do what one likes doing and the reward is pure gratitude. I am aware of the challenges that working as a personal care assistant poses. Having looked after an elderly aunt suffering from dementia, I am somewhat well-versed in living up to the emotional and physical demands this work presents. And I am geared up for it.
As an energetic personal care assistant, I would like to meet with you to discuss your expectations further. I can be reached at (000) 555-5555.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
