Lifestyle Team Leader
Cover Letter 18th February, 2018
I present myself as an experienced and ethical person with a good depth of experience working frontline with the elderly and people living with dementia and disabilities. In this area of work I have achieved a strong track record of delivering positive outcomes within the confines of budgetary common sense.
Integrity, honesty and compassion are important qualities I offer and seek in others. I enjoy being in roles that promote the delivery of good care to clients, thus helping them to maintain a meaningful and purposeful life.
I have worked in coordination roles as a team leader for many years, overseeing the daily management of therapy/activities teams, managing staff and volunteers within multidisciplinary environments. I find working with the residents and their families, enjoyable. I am people focused and building good rapport with others is important to me and I often do this though humour as I have found it to be a useful way to communicate with others; breaking the ice; helping others to feel at ease; lightening a sometimes tense. To be of service in ways that improve, or add value and quality to lives of our residents is reward in itself.
I believe my CV supports that my current and past work roles, have equipped me with a comprehensive range of skills. HoweverI feel my interest and passions are best suited to roles that promote the wellbeing of people.
