Epilepsy

Godfrey Care have ensured that staff are trained to effectively support individuals who live with Epilepsy. Training delivered by NAPPI UK ensures that staff are given the underpinning knowledge required to recognise different seizure types, identify triggers to seizures and to know how to support a person before, during and after a seizure.

We appreciate that each individual with Epilepsy will present in a different way when they have a seizure and staff are given key principles to support an individual and keep them safe whilst maintaining their dignity throughout.

Staff understand the importance of seeing beyond the Epilepsy diagnosis and seeing the person as an individual who can still lead a full and enriched life, and understand the importance of documentation to support this.
