Seniors and Seizures: Training for Long-term Caregivers
Unfortunately, having epilepsy later in life poses additional problems in treatment because of age-related issues and use of other medications. It also increases the risk of falls, broken bones and a loss of independence.
Those who care for seniors in long term care and assisted living facilities need training about epilepsy, seniors and seizure first aid. For this program, our educator will come to your site to offer free education to your staff.
Seizure Training for Daycare Workers
Just as in schools for children age K-12, daycare workers need to be able to provide a safe environment for a child who has seizures or epilepsy.
Seizure Training for Police and EMS
Police and EMS are faced with difficult situations every day. Add to this that complex partial seizures may be erroneously perceived as combativeness and that seizures cause involuntary and unconscious actions. Following a seizure, a person typically is fatigued and dazed. We also know that restraint of persons soon after a seizure may exacerbate or precipitate combativeness. These symptoms may include screaming, running, flailing or unnatural looking movements of the arms or legs, spitting, shouting and abusive statements. Again, all of these are involuntary and unconscious manifestations of seizures.
We offer specialized training for police and EMS about how to recognize seizures and how to appropriately respond to them in a sway that protects the community and the person who has epilepsy. Again, this training is free and offered at your site.
General Seizure Training
We offer basic seizure training to any group, including employers, civic groups, congregations, etc. free of charge at your location.
