Client Services Program
The Epilepsy Alliance Louisiana Client Services Program seeks to meet the diverse needs of people living with epilepsy by sharing resources and helping individuals seek the care they need.
The Fight Against Epilepsy
In Louisiana, there are almost 55,000 people living with epilepsy. 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime.
Although it’s one of the most common neurological disorders, epilepsy gets very little attention on a national scale. Those affected by epilepsy face a spectrum of challenges, including finding appropriate medical care, discrimination, stigma, mental health, and the difficulties of daily living.
Advocacy Through The Client Services Program
While the needs of each person may differ greatly, collaborative epilepsy management has the power to significantly improve the daily life of individuals living with the condition.
Epilepsy Alliance Louisiana is proud to introduce our new Client Services Program, seeking to meet the diverse needs of those living with epilepsy. Building upon our existing Case Management Program, our objective is to connect clients with information and resources readily available in their areas to help meet their needs.
Connecting Families With Resources
The new Client Services Program will help our clients find and access the resources they need, including:
- Finding epilepsy specialists
- Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AED) and prescription assistance
- Navigating insurance
- Transportation to neurology appointments and pharmacies
- Patient education
- Mental health
- Employment and housing rights
- Seizure alert devices
- Assistance with issues at school
Comprehensive Support Through Case Management
Serving an average of 30 people per month, the Client Services Program pairs our clients with dedicated Case Managers who care about their experiences and understand their unique needs.
Epilepsy Alliance Louisiana hopes to educate our clients while encouraging important conversations about medical care with providers, leading to positive changes and connecting those living with epilepsy to a wider community.
