38 Ouboet Oberholzer Crescent, Orchards Ext 24 Pretoria North, South Africa Dear Family, My name is Memory Tukuta . I am a 34 year-old female and a mother of one, to a beautiful girl named Brielle who is 3 years old. I currently live in Pretoria, South Africa with my husband and daughter, but I am originally from Zimbabwe, I came to South Africa to study, but with the turmoil in Zimbabwe I never went back home. Most of my siblings are scattered all over the world, in UAE, Australia and South Africa. I would like to be considered for the Live-In Caregiver position offered by you at your home. My compassionate nature combined with my bachelors degree and three years of hands on experience in personal care makes me a perfect candidate for this position. I have the potential to become a vital member of your family. The decision to go on a Live-in program has been difficult but necessary since we are a closely knit family as we look to and depend on each other for both physical and emotional support. Jobs in South Africa are scarce especially when you are a foreigner, your chances of getting full time employment are very slim and the crime rate is very scary especially xenophobia ,things have been a bit strange but we get by on a day to day basis. While I pursue my dream of working in Canada, Brielle will be with my Husband Brian the only other personb she knows and loves and my aunt will come to live with them, so that she continues to experience motherly love and nurturing.Due to my present job as a caregiver, I am away from home a lot and I am hoping that this is Providences way of taking care of things should I need to leave her on her own for a longer period of time. As a Caregiver at the Dube's residence and I have had the opportunity to learn greatly from this position. As part of my present job, I provide direct patient care to the clients and I am confident that I do my job well. Since I lived with grandparents ans siblings as a child, I know just what it entails to look after the elderly employing compassion, understanding and patience. Since I am the eldest in the family, my training in providing care to children and adults started at a very early age. I chose to take this further when I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Accounting in 2006 and have worked in this capacity ever since. Working with people to ensure that they lead a dignified life is now my lifes purpose. I am presently looking for a live in arrangement with a host family in Canada with whom I can work for a minimum of 2 years. I am comfortable looking after children between the ages of six months and ten years and the elderly as well. When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book. I am enthusiastic about the Live-In Caregiver position and to work with your family I will be happy to speak with you and answer any questions that you may have about me personally or my care-giving experiences.
