Keywords:Medical Social Worker, Old Age Disorders, Epilepsy, Dehradun Area
The mortality rate for elderly adults with epilepsy is two to three times that of the general population.
Nearly 80% of incidents take place in underdeveloped nations. It caused 125,000 deaths in 2015, up
from 112,000 deaths in 1990. Older persons are more likely to have epilepsy. Due to variations in the
frequency of the underlying causes, onset is more frequent among older children and young adults in
the developing world. Although epilepsy is a common neurological condition with documented
cognitive effects, we will argue in the review that little is known about how chronic epilepsy affects
cognition and brain structure in older (age 50+) and older (age 65+) individuals
