Care for Epilepsy Patients

My friend is suffering from frequent seizures and is not getting sufficient care at home.  She has broken bones multiple times in falls.  I am afraid for her life.  Her husband is reluctant to take her to the hospital, even when she has a severe fall.  I feel she is in an abusive situation, on top of having epilepsy.  What can I do?  Is there somewhere that she can get the care she needs?

this is so wrong and she should get away from him,I would call 911 if I where there when it happen if she can't do it herself.

I would also call around to a woman shelter and ask them the same thing and they might be able to help you need.

and she could also tell her doctors what is going on when she see's them for her seizures.

god bless you both and I pray things get better for your friend.
