My name is Gwen S. My dad (Bill S.) was a resident at Millennium in Ocean for three weeks. I just wanted to tell you how wonderful Rayna and the other staff members were while he was there. I never wanted my dad to leave his home, and the decision to move him was heartbreaking. The people at Millennium were incredibly kind, compassionate and attentive. They gave me a level of comfort that I did not think was possible. They are truly special people and I wanted you to know how much I appreciated them. Thank you so much.
My husband, Jimmy Mule’ had a very good almost three year stay at Millennium Memory Care @ Monroe, NJ. I realized that it was the best facility for dementia and alzheimer disease. I felt he was well loved and grew to feel that it was his home with good friends and good people taking care of him. The home was designed very well for this illness. With good management the place excels.
Sara, the manager, was excellent. She was compassionate and caring to the residents. She had all the staff working at their fullest. She had the facility clean and orderly. Some of the staff that I saw the most, Laura, Ester, Theresa, abas, Sam, Mo, Lorena, Michell and others were caring and did their work well.
I feel that Sara and the staff handled the behavior problems that come with alzheimer disease very well. I did not worry about my husband while he was there.
My prayers are with the residents and their families that are there now and others that come to Millennium Memory Care.

I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful care and love you and your staff showed for my dad. I am forever grateful for Millennium Memory Care. You provided a “home” for my dad like no other. He was so comfortable and content because of the warm, caring atmosphere. You kept him healthy for the two years he spent with you! That was such a blessing. I know in my heart he was in the best place possible. Love…
My family and I would like to thank you. We know Cosmo was well taken care of at Millennium Memory Care. The staff was very kind and caring and in the future I will recommend Millennium to anyone I know who may be in need of your services. Thank you.
A great option for people with behaviors. I spoke with Dorothy and she shared that she was so happy to find you! Thanks for being such a great option!!!
Thank you very much for your undivided attention and running a well managed Memory Care Home. God Bless you in all that you do as I know you are a compassionate person.

My dad spent 2 months being shuffled around to various facilities and hospitals because no one seemed equipped to handle Alzheimer’s patients. Instead of working with my dad to understand his needs, these facilities would overmedicate for the convenience of the staff and he would be a zombie most of the time, missing meals and unable to walk or communicate. When I visited Millennium I knew right away it was different from other facilities. There are staff and volunteers always present and tending to the needs of the residents as well as engaging them in activities. Galina explained their holistic approach of medication, diet and care and within the first week of my father moving in he was back to feeding himself and assisted walking. Galina and Millennium Memory Care have been a lifesaver!
Galina is an extraordinary example of devotion to her vocation as a Millennium Memory Care home director. She has been of great assistance to my family and to providing excellent care for my father.
On behalf of the family of Shirley, we would like to thank Galina and Millennium Memory Care for the great care they provide. Shirley did have behavioral problems associated with her dementia which made living at home an unsafe situation. We placed her in Millennium Memory Care about 1 year ago and they do have the ability to keep her safe.
But we must say, we did switch her to a much bigger facility in the area which we had contacted before going to MMC, for a period of three months, however they were unable to keep her safe and she had many falls and trips to the hospital. It was like a big hotel and they could not handle her behavior and they wanted to send her to a psychiatric hospital.
We called Galina and asked if she could help and she said “Don’t send her to a psychiatric hospital. We can take care of her.”
She found her a room and she has been receiving wonderful care ever since. The staff at MMC offers continuous activities to help keep her mind going, such as singing, bingo, and games and Shirley is singing all the time. She appears to very happy there. Of course, she has her good days and her bad days, but everyone at MMC knows what to do and how to handle her.
We do not think we could have found this type of care anywhere else or at a larger facility. The care is wonderful. The people are wonderful. And our whole family is happy with the care Shirley is receiving.

Thank you Galina. I really appreciate everything you all did for my dad. I recommended Millennium to a few people telling them how wonderful and caring your staff was towards my dad. You all were so good to my dad and welcomed him when no one else wanted him. I will be forever grateful for the kindness you and your staff showed my family. God bless you all
Dear Galina-Your amazing staff took such good care of my Mom. My Mom was only at Millennium 3 months. But the love and caring was incredible. If you ever need a recommendation feel free to give my name and number. Thank You.
Dad looks wonderful and is doing the best I have seen him in months. Thank you to you and your’ staff!!!
OMG thank you, thank you, thank you! I love it so much I have tears!!!!! Galina, you are like, giving us an unimaginable gift!!!!
I want to thank you for presenting at our AARP Meeting today. The attendees liked your topic & the way you presented it. I believe they learned quite a bit about memory loss & dementia. You are doing a great job & keep up all your good work.

“Just a note to thank you and your staff for their caring and hard work to see that my husband, Al, and the other residents at Millennium Memory Care are so well taken care of. Al had been at another long term care center for three years since he had a stroke with cognitive damage and dementia. He is out of touch with his own reality and physical condition. But he never lost his ability to speak, confused as he is! So when he tells us that he is pleased to be where he is – it matters. I am also happy that he has his own bedroom and doesn’t have to share with a roommate who is living on a machine. It was getting so crowded where he had been, that he wasn’t allowed to walk because they didn’t have the time to help him in that regard. No sooner had he arrived at Millennium, that he was on a walker and getting around with help! Like most patients with dementia, he gripes about his condition – but I do not. Because I know that Al is getting good care, good food and good living conditions.”
“My husband of 59 years has dementia and I am unable to provide the care that he needs. So I found a great home called Millennium Memory Care located at 310 Buckelew Ave, Monroe, NJ 08831. Should you have a loved person who needs Alzheimer’s or Dementia care, get in touch with Millennium and you will be happy you did. When the residents get up, dressed, have a great breakfast. They are ready for a great day with the staff, getting involved in activities, watching big screen TV, sitting in front of a fireplace listening to soft music, relaxing, napping and the staff member will read, show family photos, massage their hands, and give them individual attention. I have seen it all.
The staff is the most caring and well trained that I have seen. Their eyes are always on the residents. One of their priorities is safety. The person operating Millennium Memory Care, her name is Galina Markovich, Executive Director ANP, RN, CDP. From her office she has full view of the residents and staff. She is totally aware of what is going on. When I leave after visiting with my husband, I leave with total peace of mind knowing that my husband is well cared for night and day. I ask God to bless his new home.”
