The World of Epilepsy: A Caregivers Perspective was developed to promote epilepsy awareness. Although many Caregiver’s don’t personally have seizures, their lives are dramatically changed emotionally, physically and psychologically. This play consists of real interviews with Caregiver’s from an epilepsy support group, sharing their stories. It includes specific seizure events of their loved ones, how they cope with such challenges, and how they see their future as a Caregiver. The overall theme shows how Caregiver’s also experience life-changing events and their words of encouragement (and challenges) for others with disABILITIES.
