Whether just examining homecare jobs or you’re in the process of applying for homecare jobs, writing a caregiver cover letter is a great way to show an employer why you want this job and why you are qualified for the position. Plus, many applicants don’t write a caregiver cover letter, so this simple little task will set you apart from the competition instantly!

1. State why you want to work as a caregiver

This is the most important part of your caregiver cover letter. Be sure to tell the employer why you want to work as a caregiver and why you want to work at their senior home care agency. Hiring managers look for caregivers, like you, who have a big heart and are passionate about helping others.

2. Don’t just regurgitate your caregiver resume

This is a common pitfall when writing a caregiver cover letter. Rather than restating your resume, use your cover letter to fill in the gaps of your resume. It’s ok to review your past experience, but include a short story or example from a past caregiver job that illustrates why you are the right applicant for the job. If you don’t have any caregiver training, consider taking a caregiver training program – courses are available in just a few hours online each week and they are very low cost.

3. Proofread and spellcheck

This is key! With the spellcheck tool, you don’t need to be a spelling bee champ to avoid typos. As for checking grammar and reviewing the overall flow of your caregiver cover letter, have a trusted friend or family member read over it. Don’t hesitate to ask for help; a fresh eye can catch errors that you might have missed. A well written, professional cover letter can give you a leg up in getting hired, but one with typos and errors can hurt your chances of landing that homecare job.
