Tips for Professional Communication

Tips for Professional Communication Advice for care providers for how to best communicate with members. 

If a member reaches out to you directly – always respond – even if you cannot meet their needs.

Example responses:

  • “Hi, John! I am interested in providing care for (name), but I cannot fill all of your needs. Are you open to me providing care some of the days?”

or

  • “Hi, John! Thank you so much for reaching out. Unfortunately, I do not think I can meet your needs at this time. I wish you all the best of luck finding someone who can!”

If you are applying directly to a member through the Job Board – Introduce yourself:

  • “Hi, my name is Ashley. I am very interested in working with you, John! I see that you need support on Monday and Tuesday from 2 PM - 6 PM. I would love to learn more about your care needs and see if we would be a good fit.”
