Patient Support Programmes

As part of our commitment to patients and to further the understanding of severe diseases, UCB supports a number of programmes for patients and their families. These schemes include sponsorship programmes, informative websites, mentoring projects and scholarships, all of which work towards improving the quality of life for those affected by severe diseases.

Epilepsy Advocate

Epilepsy Advocates are people living with epilepsy and caregivers seeking the best treatment for controlling their seizures with minimal side effects.

By sharing their personal success stories online and within local communities, Epilepsy Advocates strive to inspire others.

Through these interactions, epilepsy community members can learn from one another and make positive changes in their lives.

Canine Assistants programme

Canine Assistants was founded in Alpharetta, Georgia, in 1991. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing service dogs to children and adults with epilepsy, physical disabilities, and other special needs.

Special dogs with special training

Seizure response dogs:

  • Retrieve a phone prior to a seizure
  • Summon help in a controlled environment
  • Stay with their person during a seizure

These dogs not only provide assistance, they can instill confidence by enabling their recipient to do activities they may be reluctant to do because they have epilepsy. They also provide companionship and contribute to the overall emotional well-being of the person they are placed with.

Seizure response dog training is made possible by UCB, Inc.

Seizure response dogs immediately change lives for their owners, but their extensive training can take up to 18 months.

That's why Canine Assistants work together with The Epilepsy CompanyTM, UCB, Inc. in the training of every dog. Their partnership ensures that each dog gets the extensive training that it needs, and that more needs of the epilepsy community are met.

Parkinson's Well-Being Map™

The Parkinson's Well-Being Map™ is a tool to help you to prepare for consultations with your healthcare team, so that you can help them to understand how living with Parkinson’s disease affects you.

The Map allows you to record and monitor your Parkinson’s symptoms. It covers all aspects of Parkinson’s, so that you can highlight the symptoms that are of most concern to you and list the key questions to ask at your next consultation. This way, you can ensure that symptoms do not get forgotten or overlooked.
