Seizure Disorder

Care When It’s Needed Most

While anyone can experience a seizure, not everyone who has a seizure has a seizure disorder. A seizure disorder is a medical condition that produces uncontrolled episodes of electrical activity in the brain. These episodes can vary greatly and can affect motor capabilities, focus, awareness, or a combination of these things.

The different types of seizure disorders span a wide spectrum, with some caused by epilepsy, others caused by brain injuries, and some even caused by menstrual cycles. Because of the variety of causes, each individual experiences a seizure disorder differently.

How We Can Help

Although there is no known cure for seizure disorders, there are several medications that may be prescribed to those who suffer from seizures. In addition, care from professional caregivers can provide comfort and encouragement. Our staff members have received extensive training in a variety of disorders including seizures in order to better understand them.

Support

When an individual experiences seizures on a regular basis, it can leave them feeling alone or isolated. Our Gary’s Gang program, however, is designed to support those with special needs and make them feel comfortable around our staff and other group members. We offer a supportive system that can improve the mood, attitude, and overall quality of life of those with seizure disorders.

Communication

Our seizure disorder care comes complete with an open line of communication with each individual’s parents or guardians. We like to keep in touch with the people in each Gary’s Gang member’s life to better understand their personal behaviors and needs.

Love

At New Generations, we’re all about love, and the place it shows most is in Gary’s Gang. From our staff members to our individuals with seizure disorders, we’ve created a community that is caring, accepting, loving, and warm. We pay close attention to our members and offer one-on-one care when it’s needed, but mostly, we love to have fun and enjoy life.
