Monaghan Parents support group

26th June 2017 Castleblaney

On Monday the 26th of June a group of parents of children with Epilepsy came together in Castleblaney. This was the first meeting of the group and 9 parents attended. It was a great opportunity to meet and share experiences. There was wealth of knowledge, support and understanding in the room.

The group have agreed they would like to meet again, in particular to focus on topics they identified with a relevant speaker if necessary. These included;

· Medical services access and information

· Dealing with medication and side effects

· Sport and leisure activities and safety

· Information on emergency medication

· Talking about epilepsy and perceptions of epilepsy

· School and education

Many thanks to everyone who attended. For anyone interested in attending the group in the future, please contact Mary at 042 9337585 or mbaker@epilepsy.ie for details.
