The Epilepsy Warriors Foundation

My Name is Susan I formed and started the Epilepsy Warriors please join us in our cause to Spread and Raise Awareness for our Children and families that have been diagnosed with Epilepsy! Would you know what to do if someone was having a Seizure?

  • First remain calm and ask others around to do the same. People who are having a seizure can often hear what is happening around them. It can be comforting to hear that  they are ok, and that they are not alone.
  • Look for any identification tags such as an ID bracelet or necklace showing you whether the person has Epilepsy. If they don’t have one and you are not aware that the individual has Epilepsy, call 911.
  • Do not restrain the person, and never put anything inside their mouth. This can actually do more harm than good.
  • Lay the individual on their side so that it helps to clear their airways.
  • Put something soft between their head and the floor so that they don’t bang their head.
  •  Try to time the length of the seizure. This is important information for the Doctors to know.
  •  If someone can video the seizure, this can be very helpful for the Doctor.
  • When they come out of the seizure be comforting and supportive to the individual.
