17/10/2017 To whom it may concern: It is my pleasure to recommend Houssai Ghalib for the position of a caregiver. As her employer, I confirm her suitability and ability to work well in personal care capacities. Houssai is an honest and diligent young woman who is passionate to help others. Throughout the casual time (weekends) she was working within my family providing personal care for my mom and dad, both elderly, she demonstrated keen desire to give them a reason to live actively each day. Houssai is extremely compassionate, well-organized and has a habit of completing all tasks efficiently. Houssai assisted my aging mom and dad with bathing, dressing, preparing and feeding meals and administering medications. She took them both or individually for walks around the neighborhood every day, weather permitting. I believe that she will be an asset anywhere she will work and wish her the best of luck for her future endeavours. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further queries if any. Sincerely, Barmak 
Dear Prospective Employer: It was my pleasure to have Houssai as a babysitter for my two children from January 2014 to July 2014 at which time she worked 15 to 20 hours per week. She is a neighbor and I have known Houssai and her family since I moved into the community. As a mother, it has been wonderful to have a dependable individual to help me care for my children. If you would like to discuss Houssai's qualifications and job performance further, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Helai
