MEMBER HEALTH POLICY

Members of the Jenks Senior Citizens (JSC) must be able to take care of their own personal and health needs.  Caregivers are welcome to accompany members and will be solely responsible for the health and well-being of that member.  The Board reserves the right to terminate a JSC membership after three incidents that involve emergency personnel, or the incidents interfere with the daily activities of the membership or the Coordinator, or if the incidents create an unsafe situation for the membership.
