    Caregiver Job Application Cover Letter

    How to Write a Caregiver Cover Letter

    Write a Cover Letter to Share Your Experiences as a Caregiver

    What information should a Caregiver Cover Letter Include:

    • Share why you were attracted to working as a caregiver (Did you first care for a family member? Were you injured or sick and required a caregiver for yourself?)
    • Address any issues which might be “red flags” in your job application or resume and provide the reason behind them (gaps in employment, your most recent job was in Florida but you now live in California, no professional work experience in caregiving).
    • Highlight any awards or professional achievements
    • Keep it short: 2 to 3 paragraphs maximum, fitting on one page
    • Connect for the future employer how your skills will directly benefit their company
    • Attach any certifications or training documentation

    Remember, a good cover letter just politely introduces your skills to your future employer and lets them know you are very interested in working for their company.  Be sure to share anything unique you know about their company and if a friend had told you about the job opening, mention their name.  Sometimes caregivers will ask the family members of previous seniors they have provided care for to write a testimonial which you can include in your cover letter.
