Katie Paine-Santos, registered nurse coordinator for Lakewood Care Center’s Memory Care Unit in Staples, was recently named Nurse-Caregiver of the Year by Care Providers of Minnesota.

Paine-Santos was nominated by Dan Donahue, Lakewood’s vice president of senior services, along with care center and memory care staff and patient family members.
