To Whom It May Concern,
I am interested in applying for the Personal Support Worker position with your facility. My extensive experience with the position and similar hospitals as well as my communication skills make me an excellent candidate for the position.
I am currently employed as a Personal Support Worker with Angels with Wings Group Home. I have been with this facility for fourteen years, and am fluent with the day-to-day care taking duties of a PSW. Some of the highlights of my experience here include creating HCP's for clients, implementing physiotherapy exercises for a client while working with an OT and creating a case conference package.
I pride myself on my communication skills and making sure that reporting between myself, the nurses, doctors, OT's and BT's is seamless and up-to-date. I thrive off my strong work ethic and keeping busy and I strive to ensure a quality experience for each individual client.
My passion is to provide excellent service and to demonstrate compassion in every duty and with every client I care for.
I would love the opportunity to discuss how my skills, experiences and interests make me an ideal fit for the position. I can be contacted by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (905) 123-4567.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
