Missouri State Senator Karla Eslinger visited Licking on Monday. Among her stops was Hickory Manor, where she toured the facility and visited with some of the residents and employees.

“I have a special place in my heart for our most vulnerable citizens, the elderly, the young and our veterans,” said Eslinger. “I am doing what I can to help support them and those who care for them.” Special concerns resulting from COVID-19, healthcare staff burnout and care worker shortages are prevalent all across the country.
