It’s impossible to catch epilepsy from another person.
If the person you are caring for has a seizure, it’s important to clear everything out of the way so they don’t hurt themselves. Seizures can involve falling, shaking and stiffness in the body.
Microwaving is the safest option for someone with epilepsy and there are many microwave cookbooks available. If you must use the stove, use oven mitts and cook only with the rear burners. If possible, use an electric stove to avoid open flames.
Epilepsy is a disorder with many possible causes. Anything that disturbs the normal pattern of neuron activity -- from illness to brain damage to abnormal brain development -- can lead to seizures.
