Loved ones

Epilepsy can also affect family members and loved ones of those who get ill. Having a loved one with an epilepsy diagnosis can raise feelings and questions with family and friends. Often there are changes in daily life and routines.

To be able to support your loved one and stay healthy, it is important to take time to yourself and pay attention to your own well-being.
