Cards Make It Easier to Eat Out or Use a Public Restroom

 

Restaurant Card

Tired of explaining why you are not ordering a full meal at a restaurant? With help from Ambassador Rose Hoelle, Oley developed a Restaurant Card to make your task easier. The cards are small enough to fit in your wallet and are intended to be shared with wait staff.

The front of the cards have the Oley logo and address, an illustration of a person infusing by tube and IV, and the words “For people fed by tube or IV.” There are two choices for the wording on the back of the cards:

“I have a serious digestive disorder which limits my ability to eat. Most of my nutrition is infused through a tube or IV catheter. Please allow me to order a smaller portion, share a plate or order from the children’s menu. Thank you for your consideration, Oley Foundation Member.”

 

Or

 

“I have a swallowing disorder which limits my ability to eat. Most of my nutrition is infused through a tube or IV catheter. Please allow me to order a smaller portion, share a plate or order from the children’s menu. Thank you for your consideration, Oley Foundation Member”

 

Bathroom Access Card

We’ve also developed a card to help Oley members gain access to a public restroom in a quiet, private manner. The cards are small enough to fit in your wallet and are intended to be shared with employees at stores, gas stations, office buildings, etc.

The front of the cards have the Oley logo and address, a restroom graphic, and the words “Bathroom Access Card” and “For people fed by tube or IV.” The back of the cards read: “I have a digestive disorder that means sometimes I need the bathroom urgently. Please allow me to use your facilities. Thank you, Oley Foundation Member”
