"Dear Family" Letter:
What profession did you choose and why did you do so? I enjoy working in the health care field, specifically as support staff for individuals with special needs. I previously worked as a House manager and direct support staff for adults with special needs with diagnoses ranging from autism, Down Syndrome, Aspergers, physically disabled, and/or low/high functioning. I have become an advocate and want to continue breaking the stigma that people with special needs have. I think people with special needs deserve to be understood because they are creative, unique, and smart. Ultimately, I decided on this career because I have family members with special needs and that is how I became interested in learning more about different disabilities. Why did you decide to work as a live-in caregiver? I have decided to become a live-in caregiver because I hope to one day have my own business that provides services for individuals with developmental disabilities. This would be a great opportunity for me to learn and grow at a personal and professional level. I also have the required background experience and would easily fit into the role. Why are you the best fit for a family and what are your special skills when working with children? I am the best fit for a family because I am respectful and I will be there to meet your family's needs and wishes. Although I will be there to assist with your child, I will also become a part of your family. We will have shared and common goals to meet. Additionally, I have positive feedback from not only my managers but also complete strangers! I love taking my clients to the mall, and whenever strangers see me with my clients interact I usually get random people to comment how wonderful and attentive I am with my clients. I also recently had a teen join our home and his parents confessed they were hesitant at first until they met me. After meeting with me, they told me they felt comfortable with their choice of me caring for their child. How do you like to spend your free time? I used to play sports when I was younger, but now I usually just watch sports on T.V. or attend games. I do enjoy spending my time watching football and basketball. Also, I am an Eagles fan! How would you describe your driving skills? I have been driving for 20 years now. I am a careful and responsible driver. I have experience providing transportation to my clients. I like to quickly learn and familiarize myself with the roads and surrounding areas. What else should a family know about you? Dear host family, for starters I am family-oriented and easy-going, easy to get along with. I will do anything for your family and I am a team player. I will always respect you, I believe in being my authentic self, and I truly want to make a positive impact.
