Letter to the family

Hi there! Allow me to introduce myself— My name is Isabella and I am a Canadian with Italian citizenship seeking an opportunity as an au pair or caregiver for older adults. My passion for nurturing others and my diverse background and skill set make me an ideal person for you!

Firstly, I am drawn to the role of an au pair and caregiver because of my innate love for providing care and support to those who need a little extra support. Growing up in a multicultural household instilled a deep appreciation for fostering relationships and creating meaningful connections. My background in communications, marketing, and gerontology equips me with a unique blend of skills and knowledge that I believe are essential.

I have a soft spot for cooking, which later on led to my passion for exploring new cuisines. I find joy in preparing wholesome meals and creating a warm, inviting atmosphere within the home. I live an active lifestyle, which includes activities such as walking, running, yoga, and Pilates.

What sets me apart as a candidate is my genuine compassion, patience, and optimism. These qualities enable me to approach each day with a positive outlook, even in the face of challenges. My experience working with children at a summer camp during university has honed my ability to connect with young minds and provide them with a nurturing environment to thrive. I have a huge passion for travel and wanting to learn new to me cultures.

However, my deep-seated passion for gerontology—the study of aging—and my genuine affection for older adults truly motivate me to pursue this opportunity. I believe that every individual deserves to age with dignity and respect, and I am committed to providing compassionate care that enriches the lives of those under my charge.

5. Active Lifestyle: My engagement in activities such as walking, running, yoga, and pilates ensures that I have the energy and stamina required to keep up with the demands of caregiving. In addition, working with children aged 5-12 in a summer camp created an opportunity to live an outdoor and active lifestyle.

6. Organization: I enjoy being organized, which allows me to manage schedules, activities, and household tasks efficiently, ensuring a smooth-running environment for those under my care.

7. Adaptability: My background in marketing and gerontology demonstrates my ability to adapt to diverse environments and situations, enabling me to navigate the complexities of caregiving easily.
