Advocacy & Case Management Services
The Epilepsy Center works to support the rights of individuals impacted by epilepsy in areas such as:
Finding affordable housing
Finding and keeping employment
Educational, Medical and Legal issues
We assess the needs of our clients; assist in planning and implementation of plans; coordinate services on their behalf and become their voice when necessary.
Prescription and Benefits Assistance
We link our clients to Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) offered by Pharmaceutical Pharmacies and assist them as necessary to apply for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
Emergency Medication Assistance
Limited loans can be provided for the purchasing of anticonvulsant medication in an emergency situation only. The payment is forwarded directly to the pharmacy.
The Mission of the Epilepsy Center of Northwest Ohio is to improve the lives of people affected by epilepsy and those with developmental disabilities.
People with epilepsy and those with developmental disabilities will attain the highest quality of life and gain full acceptance and understanding from the community.
