Letter to the family

Good afternoon,

My name is Sandra and I'm a 48 years old hard-working woman.
A few years back my husband past away and me and my two young adult children were left alone. This gave as a strenght that most families don't have, so we are all very strong and hardworking.
My dream job was alway to take care of the elderly, make them smile and give them a confortable life in the last years they are among us.
I really enjoy the company of the elderly because we still have so much to learn from them, and be thankfull to all these people contributed for our society.
I'm a very clean and respectful person, polite, funny and attentive and I honestly believe your loved ones will have a great time with me because they will never feel alone or neglected for a day in their lifes.
My adult children don't need me anymore, as I proudly say that they have their own lifes, which means I can adventure to go abroad to pursuit my dream.

Thank you very much for your time while reading this.
Hope we meet soon!

Experience

My experience in caregiving is more personal than professional. As my husband got sicker, I had to give him a bath, feed him, dress him, clean his teeth, everithing he couldn't do alone, but not for a second I felt any bad with myself, on the opposite, it only gave me more strenght to now write to you applying for this type of jobs. I honestly belive that this is my mission on earth
The same experience happend with my father, only this time we had a nurse that showed me how to properly work the body of an incapacitated person, for example, how to change sheets, dress them, feed them, give them a bath, and how should i move my body in order for me not to get hurt.

Besides the pratical experience, I believe a caregiver is more than cleaning and cooking.
I'll always do the extra mile in everithing I do in life, so I want to read, wach tv together, sing songs, exchange histories from our pasts, and provide a good time with these people.
