Epilepsy in later life
Epilepsy can sometimes follow a diagnosis of dementia or after a stroke. As more people live longer with these conditions, more older people will develop epilepsy.
Having a diagnosis of epilepsy in later life can hit you hard especially if you have always been healthy and active. Losing your driving licence and having to rely more on others can affect self-esteem and confidence.
Our Epilepsy and later life publication pulls together information specifically aimed at older people to help you understand epilepsy and make the most of your treatment.
