ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
I am MaryAnn Ciambriello and have been involved in the healthcare industry for nearly 35 years. My career as an RN in diverse venues led me to a commitment in geriatric caregiving. Help at Home of CT was founded upon the concept that all caregivers would receive specialty training to meet the unique needs of the Alzheimer’s/dementia population. I observed that many healthcare practitioners viewed this occupation as a business, not a personalized service. Above all else, compassion was lacking as well as the expertise to effectively fulfill the requirements of this occupation. During the agency’s three-to-four year tenure, I have only employed highly qualified caregivers to represent the agency. In doing so, my vision of empathetic caregiving and operating a home care agency were both successfully realized. These unique concepts in this field gave birth to CNA Academy of CT.
