"Your Memory & Epilepsy" - with Occupational Therapist, Catherine Murphy.

question marks around man's head depicting memory issues.
26 May 2022

Issues around memory are often something which is discussed with our team of Community Resource Officers by people with epilepsy and their families as a challenge associated with the condition.

Memory issues can be common amongst people with epilepsy – due to the nature of seizures and potential side effects from medications.

However, there are techniques and resources which can help aid a person’s memory throughout their journey with epilepsy.

This why we are delighted to be joined by Occupational Therapist, Catherine Murphy, for this special event for adults with epilepsy which focuses on memory.

Catherine is the occupational therapist based at the Memory technology resource room in Baile Mhuire, Tralee, Co Kerry.  Memory technology resource rooms are a HSE led project and are available in locations Nationwide. Their aim is to improve the lives of people who experience memory difficulties. With her involvement in this project, Catherine will bring a wealth of experience on memory techniques for those in attendance. 

We look forward to welcoming you virtually to this event and should you have any questions on this event, please contact our Community Resource Officer Kathryn Foley on kfoley@epilepsy.ie.
