Dear Mr. Hiccup —

What got my interested in being a Resident Assistant for a nursing home was watching my grandfather go through the aging process. He actually didn't have a very good care system behind him. And it was something that really affected my family and me. It made me realize I wanted to change this. That for nursing homes and communities who care for elders, I want to provide world-class experiences. Here is what I've been able to accomplish:

Programmed more than 18 different activities for the elderly within a nursing community.
Created a "doorstop" mentality within the nursing home where we were always checking in on our residents.
Worked closely to develop relationships with all nursing home residents and ensured staff were treating our customers with excellence.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
