ST. BERNARD COUNCIL ON AGING
DRESS CODE AND PERSONAL HYGIENE POLICY

Black-and-White-Night-5-20-2011-030-320x240

DRESS CODE

The St. Bernard Council on Aging has the following rules in regards to proper attire to attend the center and participate in programs and activities offered on a daily basis. 

Men must wear shirt and pants/shorts and shoes.  Tank tops and undershirts are not acceptable due to health and hygiene issues posed from underarm hair.
 
Women must wear blouse/top and pants/shorts/skirt or dress and shoes.  Housecoats/housedresses are not acceptable, as this is a public building. 

No pajamas, nightgowns, robes or slippers are allowed by either men or women. 

PERSONAL HYGIENE

To preserve the health and well being of all clients who attend the COA, clients must be clean and free of offensive odors.
 If a client has health issues that require special maintenance, such as stomach or bowel disorders or urinary tract infections, the client must be sure to bring extra items to insure that if an accident happens they can change and eliminate any odor their accident may have caused.
 
If a client is found to have offensive pet odors or pet hairs on them, they will be asked to eliminate the odor/hairs and will not be allowed to attend the center until this has been done.  Other clients may have pet allergies that could be triggered by strong pet odors or excessive pet hair carried in by the offending client.
 
The Director or Assistant Director will handle any and all complaints lodged against any client in regard to dress code or hygiene violations.  The client will be allowed to correct the problem and return to the center immediately. 


LUNCH POLICY

Clients calling to order lunch call in to the LUNCH LINE.  An automated system will record your order over the telephone.  All orders must be placed before 1 p.m. the weekday before the meals will be served. For Example:  You must order your lunch for Monday on Friday. 

You MUST BE SIGNED IN FOR LUNCH BY 11:35 a.m. to receive your lunch on time each day.  LATE ARRIVALS WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE A MEAL. THEY MUST SIGN THE LATE LUNCH LIST LOCATED AT THE RECEPTION DESK AND MUST WAIT IN THE RECEPTION AREA UNTIL CALLED, WHICH WILL BE AFTER THE FINAL TABLE HAS BEEN CALLED AND SERVED.  ANY CLIENT WHO HASN’T ORDERED A MEAL MAY ALSO SIGN THE LATE LUNCH LIST, MUST WAIT IN THE RECEPTION AREA AND WILL BE ALLOWED A MEAL, PROVIDED FOOD IS STILL AVAILABLE ON THE SERVING TABLE.  Note:  Pre-ordered lunches always have priority.  You must be staying on the premises to receive your lunch chip.

NOTE:
You may place, or someone may place for you, a name cloth on the back of the chair each morning to reserve your seat for lunch.  If you are not in the building by 11:20 a.m., a staff member may remove your cloth, which will make your seat available to any client wishing to sit there. 

REMINDER

All hot or cold foods and milk must be consumed on the premises.
