Epilepsy Awareness – Rosie’s Story
Living with Epilepsy – Getting to Know You
Rosie is a beautiful young lady who has lived at one of our supported living services for people with learning disabilities for numerous years. Rosie was diagnosed with epilepsy from a young age.
Rosie’s seizures would come on suddenly and she had no way of telling staff when she was about to have a seizure. The number of incidents where Rosie became hurt during a seizure were high. Rosie also has autism. She is sensitive to touch and would not allow anyone near her. Therefore, she would not wear head equipment to keep herself safe from any injuries during a seizure.
