Event Details

A lot of “senior moments” may in fact be seizures.

About 50,000 new cases of epilepsy occur in people aged 60 and above each year, and a significant number of additional cases are undiagnosed. Epilepsy is a medical condition. It is not contagious & can be treated.  A Training Program for Organizations Serving Seniors

Training Purpose: This training is designed to train staff in senior serving agencies to deliver training content at their agency. Training focuses on understanding the needs of older adults with or at risk for epilepsy. It provides basic, straightforward information about epilepsy. This program has been designed with multiple caregiving settings in mind.  Since epilepsy is commonly underdiagnosed in older adults, this training also raises awareness of the clues and symptoms that may lead to an epilepsy diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
