Living with Epilepsy

Live your life

Epilepsy can affect your life in many ways, but with effective strategies and medication it is possible to lead a full and active life. At MREA, we want to help to inform and empower you, so that you can control your epilepsy, and not let it control you.

Parents with Epilepsy

Parental advice

All parents who have epilepsy will know how important safety measures are in the home.  The presence of babies and young children, however, means that further precautions may have to be taken to ensure that they are safe during a seizure.

Parents who have warnings of seizures, or know what time they are likely to occur, will have less of a problem than those whose attacks are irregular and without prior warning.
