"I wish I could talk with someone"
Do you feel like you’re on your own dealing with Epilepsy; like no one around understands what you’re going through? A diagnosis of Epilepsy or a seizure disorder can be a life-altering experience. Our Peer-to-Peer Network might be just what you're looking for. Speaking with someone else with a similar life experience can be both comforting and insightful. Our peer-to-peer volunteers draw upon their own experiences to offer encouragement, compassion and helpful information. Epilepsy Durham Region will try our best to link peers based on commonalities.
A Parents' Forum
Having Epilepsy or caring for someone who does can be very challenging. Sometimes the practical problems of daily living - from insurance, to jobs, to medical care - can seem overwhelming. Simply being able to talk to people who understand what it is like to live with Epilepsy can be very comforting.
As a parent, you know a lot about living with seizures and their impact on family life. This program offers families and caregivers an opportunity to share challenges and successes with one another. Epilepsy Durham Region invites you to meet other parents who know what you are going through; learn from their experiences and share your own challenges, successes, and coping strategies in a friendly, positive environment.
