This week, it is your turn. In an effort to service the area of Western Kentucky, I am finding many parents with children with special needs or epilepsy who are in need of services. This week if you are a parent of a child with epilepsy, or if you or another family member have epilepsy, I'd like for you to post your experiences. Let me know the following:
1. Are you happy with your current health care provider?
2. Are you seizure free?
3. Are you serviced well in your community, if yes, what services are the most valuable to you?
4. What resources do you need?
5. What additional supports would be helpful to you?
I know personally that navigating insurance, health care, medications, pharmacies, educational supports, therapies and resources is overwhelming. Finding a way to pull together the services needed and share those with families in need is my goal.
If you are not effected by Epilepsy, think about the opportunities that exist in helping a family that is dealing with this. Offer to run errands, cook meals, go over and fold their laundry, send them cards that let them know you are available to help in any capacity. Even one small effort on your part can be a huge blessing in the day of a deserving family.
