    • Seniors with Epilepsy
      Seizures are very prevalent in seniors. People over age 65 experience seizures, but their case of epilepsy may be mistaken for Dementia or Alzheimers. The most popular seizures in seniors are those you cannot see. They include:
      • Absence Seizures - the person experiencing it stares into space for about 15 seconds, and then is back to normal.
      • Complex Partial Seizures - the person experiencing the seizure stares into space, swallows hard, fumbles with their clothes, or walks around aimlessly.
      • Myoclonic Seizures - the person experiences a shock like jerk in one part of the body. During the seizure the person is still able to think clearly and is awake
