"I've never seen anything like it. It was so amazing," said Lorraine St. Onge, a resident of Monarch Landing in Naperville. The 89-year old was the first recipient of the My Monarch Moment Award from The Springs at Monarch Landing. The honor is a wish granted to the hardest workers in rehabilitation at the healthcare center. Because of Lorraine's dedicated efforts resulting in her amazing recuperation, Lorraine was taken to Topgolf in Naperville, to try out her post-accident swing. "It was a lot of fun," she reported. A native of the Chicago area, Lorraine had moved to Mississippi 35 years ago and was happy to consider that home. When she had a serious accident early this year, her daughter, who lives in Warrenville, encouraged her to return closer to family for recuperation. "I was at The Springs for about two months," said Lorraine. "I liked it very much. I liked the therapy and all the therapists. They were so helpful. I liked the staff a lot. And I had a large, lovely room."
