Description

Summary

The goal of this clinical trial is to develop and test an educational program about dementia in older adults living with epilepsy. The main questions it aims to answer are:

  1. Can providing education on healthy aging, chronic disease management, dementia, and modifiable lifestyle dementia risk factors improve dementia knowledge and health literacy among older adults with epilepsy?
  2. Can aging related education and resources improve quality of life among older adults with epilepsy?

Participants will:

  • Complete a 12-week group educational program.
  • Complete pre- and post-program evaluation.
