About SEIN

Stichting Epilepsie Instellingen Nederland (SEIN) is an expertise centre for epilepsy and sleep medicine. SEIN is specialised in diagnosis, treatment, support and scientific research in epilepsy and sleep. SEIN provides sustainable healthcare, treatment and residential options for people with difficult to treat types of epilepsy or additional problems. De strength of SEIN lies in its multidisciplinary approach, in which specialised neurologists, psychologists and other physicians work closely together. SEIN also collaborates with university hospitals and international epilepsy centres. 

SEIN aims to improve the quality of life of people with epilepsy. SEIN does this through two clinics, twelve outpatient clinics, sleep centres, residential facilities, a guest house for respite care, day care activities and a school for special education all spread over the middle, West and North-East of the country. About 400 residents live at SEIN in Heemstede, Cruquius and Zwolle. They are unable to live independently because of their epilepsy and additional limitations. Each year more than 13.000 patients visit the outpatient clinics.
