Our approach is to provide a service and environment that supports all those with epilepsy to live a better and more fulfilling life. We seek to provide a multidisciplinary approach so that we can offer support to those with epilepsy who also have associated and additional complications, including physical and learning disabilities, brain injury and autism.
Our range of care and support services offers a unique blend of health and social care. We enable individuals with complex epilepsy to achieve their greatest possible independence, in a safe environment where there is readily accessible medical expertise.
We believe in maximising the potential of each individual. Our approach places each person at the centre of their own care, and takes their thought and views into account when creating a care and support plan that is personal to them.
The Epilepsy Support Team includes neurologists, epilepsy specialist nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, an art therapist and speech and language therapists. The role of the team is to utilise their combined expertise to manage the needs of the individual, specifically those that result from the unpredictable nature of the condition.
We are the leading charity care provider, where people love to work and live. Our wide range of care is tailored to the needs of each individual, and our professional staff are committed to maximising the life potential of everyone within our care homes.
The Chalfont Centre and our Gowers unit lead the way in the most advanced techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
