What is epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a common neurological condition that temporarily affects the electrical activity within the brain when electrical signals are interrupted or build up, which then causes seizures. Around 1 in 100 people have epilepsy, and it can happen at any age, though more commonly starts in either childhood or in people over 60.

Seizures can present in various ways which impact a person’s daily life, such as staring spells, stiff muscles, temporary confusion, collapsing, or uncontrollable jerking of the arms and legs. There are many different types of epilepsy, and over 40 different types of seizure, not all of which present physically. It is often a lifelong condition, but for many their seizures are manageable with treatment.

What is epilepsy care?

Epilepsy care may involve supporting you or your loved one in several different areas of day-to-day tasks, helping to safeguard your home, assisting with medication administration or the use of treatments such as vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), and helping with other seizure management methods. Your care will be administered following a bespoke care plan provided by your clinical team.
