Services Update

April 2, 2020

In light of Public Health recommendations, Epilepsy Ottawa staff is working from home and our office at the Bronson Centre is temporarily closed.

We understand that this is a concerning time, and we will continue to provide support in a number of ways.

  • We have forwarded the Epilepsy Ottawa phone line to a cell phone, so you will be able to reach support services by phone.
  • We offer support meetings online (e.g. Skype, Facetime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facebook Video Chat).
  • Our monthly Parent Support Group and Social Group are now on Zoom. Please check out our event calendar for upcoming dates. RSVP on the event pages to receive the meeting link.
  • We host a live chat every weekday on our private Facebook Group . Anyone affected by epilepsy in our service region is welcome to join this group.
  • We are hosting Facebook Live events including workouts and cooking demonstrations on our private Facebook Group.
  • We will connect you to other online resources on our Facebook Page and private Facebook Group. For example, we will share links to Epilepsy Toronto‘s webinar series that begins on April 2nd at 2pm when Dr. Evan Lewis talks about Covid-19 and epilepsy.
  • We are looking into ways to provide more support services from a distance. Please check epilepsyottawa.ca for updates in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your understanding.

Take care of yourselves and each other.
