Does anyone know or has information about sensory dogs for people with epilepsy as I've been trying to find out.

If you get in touch with your social worker or even sometimes your neurologist they will be able to tell you the closest place to you to be matched up with an epilepsy dog. When I was offered one, it was my social worker. Unfortunately, due to the fact that I was being taken in and out of hospital so much (& I would have had no one to look after it,) I had to turn it down.

I hope that you are successful in getting one. Good luck 🤞🐕
