Hello and welcome to the inaugural Epilepsy Alarms blog post, posted on A-Levels results day and we would like to extend the best of luck to any of our readers receiving their results today.
Now that the scores have been tallied, the grades revealed and photos of students jumping for joy published in the press, all is left for young people with their eye on a place at University is to get excited for one of the biggest days of their lives; the day you move away from Mum & Dad for the first time.
We know how stressful this can be, for both student and the parents, and we understand that for young people with epilepsy there are the added concerns that go with any condition. For many young people what is supposed to be a time of adventure, an opportunity to leave the nest and spread their wings is fraught with concerns and ‘what-if’s.
However, with the Epi-Care epilepsy alarm, the freedom so craved by young people can be easily restored. The smartphone version can be worn anywhere in the UK, meaning no matter if you’ve chosen to study at Imperial College London or the University of Agricultural Sciences in the Shetland Isles, help can be on hand to provide you with the necessary coverage and support so you can concentrate on getting that all important degree.
What’s more, most universities have a Disability Students Allowance (DSA) to help students with epilepsy pay for items such as this. Further advice on what is available can be found here at the Young Epilepsy website or by contacting the Specialist Needs Adviser of your chosen University.
The Epilepsy Society has plenty of information on preparing yourself for the practicalities of the university to so why not head over there and take a look.
If you have any questions on how our range of equipment may help you, then why not give us a call on 0800 180 8833.
The most important thing to remember is that university is a time to broaden your horizons, both personally and academically, with EAUK you’ll have the freedom to go anywhere and not let epilepsy hold you back.
