The first thing that prospective employers notice about cover letters is how well-structured they are.
If your cover letter has the right amount of white space, and the information in it is not too much, there’s a great chance that the hiring manager will be encouraged to read it.
Once you have sorted out the format, it is time to determine what you need to put into a cover letter. Cover letters are notoriously difficult to write, only because we are unaware of how things are supposed to roll in them.
Typically, cover letters hold information of an individual’s abilities and qualifications for a job. This information needs to be built upon in a cover letter so that hiring managers can obtain a favorable view of your professional existence.
To see what you can write (and how to structure the format) a cover letter for a hospice caregiver position, have a look at the following sample:

Human Resource Manager

Rapid City, SD 28344
Dear Mr. Garcia:
Perhaps ones of the most difficult thing in life is to see a loved one in pain, knowing that they may make their final journey soon. As someone who understands this only too well, I offer my services in the role of a Hospice Caregiver. Knowing perfectly well how to handle patients who may be at the end of their lives, is my unique strength, having worked in this capacity for over six years now. For further details on my experience, I request you to go through the accompanying resume.
As an experienced hospice caregiver, I am sure that I will be a welcome addition to your team. Over the last few years, I have been actively assisting in creating and implementing care plans, to meet the individual requirements of assigned patients. Providing both physical and emotional care to distressed individuals is my niche – I am often called upon for assistance with complex cases, where patients’ emotional balance is not at par. The ability to reach out to patients to provide them with exceptionally well-placed assistance to ensure that end of life care is properly executed is probably my best strength. And at this point, I would like your facility to benefit from it
Comprehending that you are a busy individual, I will contact you over the phone to set up a convenient time for us to meet. In the interim, you may call me for any further information that you might need.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
