MMC Director Galina Markovich
Galina Markovich, a certified Adult Nurse Practitioner, co-founded Millennium Memory Care (MMC) in 2014. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Long Island University (LIU) in 1996. As a registered nurse, she worked in hospitals, assisted living facilities, and in the areas of urgent care and home care. In 2004 she received her master’s degree from New York University (NYU) and was certified as an Adult Nurse Practitioner (ANP). As an ANP she had opportunities to work in various settings such as nursing homes, urgent care, and home care where she acquired a wealth of experience managing and treating behavioral dementia cases.
Shortly thereafter, she co-founded MMC and has applied her experience from over 20 years in behavioral geriatric nursing to building a successful model of behavioral dementia care.
Galina is also a Certified Dementia Practitioner and provides counseling and support groups for caregivers of those suffering from behavioral dementia. She enjoys working collaboratively with caregivers to help them offer the best care possible for their loved ones or patients.

MMC Regional Manager Devin Milano
In May of 2021, I became the Regional Nurse manager of Millennium Memory care. Being a part of this company, being trained by MMC Director Markovich , being a part of a team that includes the entire staff in all five locations, is being a part of a family where we all belong. This current position has brought out and continues to bring out the best version of me as a nurse. I proudly care for all residents under my license.
I have 16 years’ experience in the medical field, including 4 years as a certified nursing assistant, before beginning my licensed practical nursing career. I intend to continue to advance my medical licensing and credentials as I go forward. I completed an internship at Staten Island University Hospital in Staten Island, N.Y, and was awarded “Volunteer of the year in 2008.” My mentor described my work ethic and determination by saying “She hits the ground running”. The care I put into my work shows my pride and dedication to servicing others. In these complex times, my motto is “If there is a problem, there is a solution”. Being a residents’ advocate and being their voice when they can’t speak for themselves makes my job more rewarding.
I am a strong patient advocate and I work to ensure continuity of care at the highest level, under any circumstance, in any facility, at any given time. I provide a compassionate hand for residents to hold, and a soft tone to re- direct when nothing else seems right. For the families I offer a constant, positive reassurance that their loved ones are in the right hands. Outside of Millennium, I come from a traditional large Italian family, raising two beautiful children with my husband, and embracing every moment of life that is available to us.
