(a) For parents who may have seizures, safety measures must ensure that young children do not wander off or otherwise sustain injury - gates need effective locks.
(b) Ponds are best avoided but where they exist may be covered with safety mesh.
(c) Hard landscaping features, paths, patios, rockeries, statuary and walls may present hazards to persons with frequent seizures where falls are a feature. Grassed areas and wooden decking may be more suitable.

Local Authority Grants may be available to assist with costs of necessary house modifications.
