Purple Day

Saturday 26th March 2016 is 'Purple Day' - an international day where people are encouraged to wear purple, to raise awareness about EPILEPSY.

Epilepsy affects 50 million people across the world and 600,000 people in the UK. There are about 40 different types of epilepsy and it is most commonly diagnosed in children and people over 65.

 

1. The basic alarm - so family (in particular children) can alert us in the event of a seizure

The basic Lifeine alarm unit and emergency button can be ideal for the family of someone with epilepsy.  We have a number of customers who are epileptic but who have young children.  They have a Lifeline alarm so that if they have a seizure, their children know to press the alarm and let us know so that we can summon emergency help.  In these instances we know it is a child alerting us so our staff are trained to talk to them appropriately depending on their age and to constantly reassure them during the call. This can provide untold peace of mind for children who are anxious about a parent or carer having a seizure while they're on their own.

 

2. An Epilepsy Sensor

We can install an Emfit Epilepsy Seizure Alarm, which monitor's a person's epilepsy while they sleep in bed. The technology detects a person’s movement in bed and is able to differentiate normal movements from epileptic seizures. The alarm can be raised via the Lifeline base unit, ensuring carers can respond quickly if they are needed, but otherwise do not disturb the user’s sleep.

This equipment is monitored 24/7 and costs £24 a month to rent.

Call us to find out more about what equipment is available on 0151 298 2440.
