Nicole McMonigle Knight

Certified Dementia Practitioner 

Founder / Care Consultant

 

As a former family caregiver, Nicole understands firsthand the complexity involved in navigating care options and resources. It can be overwhelming and oftentimes, families need guidance and support each step of the way. 

 

Nicole has over 18 years of experience working in healthcare, including 11 years in the field of aging and 8 years directly in dementia care in memory care communities throughout the D.C. metro area. Prior to transitioning into memory care, she worked in hospice, pharmacy care and completed a field study in physical therapy. 

 

As a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Nicole is extremely passionate about dementia care and brings extensive expertise on dementia, strategies for behavior management, community resources and support services for families. Her approach focuses on family support, education, advocating for a loved one's quality of life as well as their own and empowering families with proper tools, resources and support so they can make the best choices.

 

Nicole serves on the community action teams for Dementia Friendly America Herndon and Dementia Friendly Alexandria. She is also a Fairfax Area Agency on Aging 50+ Community Ambassador, Alexandria Senior Ambassador, support group facilitator for the Alzheimer's Association, and facilitator for two Memory Cafés in Northern Virginia.
