EVENTS RUNNING IN GLASGOW
Women & Epilepsy Information Day
Thursday 16 November, 10:30 – 3:00
Epilepsy Connections would like to invite you to our upcoming Women & Epilepsy Information Day on Thursday 16 November from 10:30 – 3:00.
This event is open to both women with epilepsy and women who care for someone with epilepsy and will feature presentations from Dr Maria Oto, Neuropsychiatrist and Dr Linda Stephen, Associate Specialist in Epilepsy on topics relevant to women with epilepsy.
We will also be providing complementary therapies, a fun belly dancing taster, and food and refreshments.
Due to limited places, we are asking all attendees for a £5 returnable deposit to hold a place. The deposit will be returned to you on the day of the event.
To register your place, please call the Epilepsy Connections office at 0141 248 4125. We look forward to hearing from you.
Thursday 16th November, 10.30am – 1.30pm
This session can’t cure memory problems, but will help you learn how to make the most of your memory by using practical strategies, techniques and technology.
All these courses are free of charge to anyone with epilepsy, their family and unpaid carers. If you would like to attend, phone the office on 0141.248.4125 to reserve a place.

Our social group in Glasgow for adults continues to meet on the first Tuesday of the month.

Please note everyone is expected to pay their own expenses.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS RUNNING IN AYRSHIRE & ARRAN
Young Person’s Group
Thursday 16th November, 5.30-7.30pm
North Ayrshire Carers Centre, 174 High Street, Irvine KA12 8AN
The idea for this group came about because younger people wanted to meet and share experiences with their peers – it could be about college, employment, volunteering, social activities, etc. The aim is for the group to set their agenda and give everyone the opportunity to have their say, with support from Jim Thompson and Gareth Davison.
A friend or family member/carer can also come along and have a chat and coffee in another room.
