I am writing in response to the position you have posted. I have over 27 years' experience as a social worker in the field of child protective services. I worked as a social worker for 12 years in Mass. and over the last 15 years for the State of Connecticut's Department of Children & Families child protective services agency. The care, safety and well-being of others, especially children is and always has been my passion.
Now that I no longer work as a social worker, I have asked myself over and over again, what it is that I really love and that working with people.
I have also been an Administrative Assistant and I also hold a license in Real Estate and function as a Justice of the Peace. Most importantly, I am a widow and the mother of adults twins, who I raised alone along with being the grandmother to a toddler. I have maintained a household doing all tasks for many years; therefore, cleaning, childcare, laundry, etc. has been part of my daily life for many years and I believe if I am going to do something, I need to do it to the best of my ability. It would be my pleasure to work with a senior citizen because I love the gifts that they possess; which is their wonderful wisdom and knowledge that one cannot attain from any book that has been written.
Now that I am retired from social work, I am looking for a new position dealing with people in any other field that does not deal with abuse and neglect.
I believe that working with you or your loved one would bring a refreshing and rewarding experience that I so desire.
I do not drink, use drugs, smoke and I am a U. S. citizen. I am 53, and told I have a good sense of humor. I am honest and trustworthy and have never been arrested and cleared by the FBI. I also have a valid driver's license and a clean driving record. I am willing to submit to criminal background checks and drug testing randomly if you would like.
I can do some light housekeeping and follow recipes (I don't think you want me to cook without them) and I am great when it comes to organization and leadership. As a live-in, I am looking to earn approximately $900 per week (full time) but that is negotiable and I would like to work Monday-Friday, if possible.
I look forward to discussing this vacancy with you and thank you in advance for your time. Please feel free to email or call me on my home phone or cell phone if you think that you might be interested in utilizing my services so that we can meet.
