Behind every NightWatch is a story worth telling
Our NightWatch stories come from people who have been affected by epilepsy. This illness is accompanied by fears, insecurity and the search for help to cope with daily life and to feel safe. In many cases, NightWatch is introduced as a daily sleep companion, in addition to good medical care.
