A pleasant hobby improves well-being and brings energy to daily life. Through hobbies, you can gain friendships, experiences and feelings of success whilst you learn new skills.

Almost all forms of exercise are suitable for people with epilepsy. Discuss with your doctor if you have worries about any activity. It is recommended to inform your friends and instructors about your epilepsy and what first aid might be needed.

If you are considering insurance for injuries, carefully read your insurance conditions. Private accident insurance often has a limitation that if the occurrence of the injury in connection with the accident is substantially caused by an illness or defect independent of the accident, no compensation is paid.

Looking for nice things to do or new hobbies?

Epilepsy associations organize a wide range of activities all over Finland such as opportunities for exercising, excursions, meetings in Friend cafes, Friend walks, play dates and much more. By participating in hobbies and events, you can make new friends and exchange experiences with other people with epilepsy as well as their loved ones.

We have compiled different recreational opportunities offered by the associations into our calendar of events. Welcome!
