Frequently Asked Questions

  1. You should call the secretarial services office to make an appointment with the physiatrist.

  1. A medical diagnosis and recommendation that a course of rehabilitation sessions as an outpatient is necessary from an EOPYY certified physician.
  2. An electronic prescription for the sessions.
  3. A certificate of approval for the prescribed sessions from an EOPYY audit official.
Yes. This would be preceded by an evaluation from the physiatrist, followed by a specially-designed, personalised therapeutic hydrotherapy exercise programme.
Your strict adherence to your scheduled appointments is considered absolutely essential and vital to successful treatment. If, for some reason, you need to miss a therapy session, you should contact us by phone to cancel the appointment.
The clothing or equipment a patient might need depends on the type of treatment they are to follow. If your appointment involves physiotherapy or occupational therapy, wear sports clothing and athletic shoes. If you schedule an appointment for hydrotherapy, you need an athletic-type swimsuit, a towel, a bathrobe and non-slip shower sandals.

Inpatients

The EOPYY has drawn up a list of conditions which are covered for inpatient treatment at a Rehabilitation & Recovery Centre. For more information call at 27160-08-888.
PALLADION’s medical team includes physiatrists, general practitioners, neurologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, and microbiologists. New medical specialties are being added to the team all the time.
It is our pleasure to show you around the PALLADION Rehabilitation and Recovery Centre and answer any question you might have about your hospitalisation. Please call the centre in advance to make arrangements for your visit.
When you are admitted to the PALLADION Centre, you should bring personal items, including personal hygiene items (toothbrush, toothpaste, sponge/washcloth) as well as sports clothing, pajamas, underwear, swimwear, slippers and athletic shoes.
It should be noted that patients are advised not to bring valuables, as the Centre cannot take responsibility for any loss. More details can be found in our admissions guide.
The PALLADION Rehabilitation and Recovery Centre has designated visiting hours, which should be respected by patients’ relatives and friends. From Monday to Saturday, visitors are welcome from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, while Sunday visiting hours are 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Each patient’s programme is different, designed exclusively to treat their specific circumstances. The day includes scheduled therapy sessions, which are held in the morning. The patient then takes his lunchtime meal and has some time to rest after lunch. Later in the afternoon, the treatment programme will continue, or there are creative activities organised, under the guidance of the Centre’s staff.
Part of the treatment process you will be following at PALLADION involves a carefully designed diet provided for you by the Centre. Your meals are prepared on the instructions of the clinical dietitian by professional chefs, so it would be counterproductive to bring food from home. But we are sure that you will find our menu to be both healthy and delicious!

To inquire about the progress your loved one is making, you should arrange an appointment to speak to the Scientific Director of the Centre.

You can visit the patient as often as you wish. The distance from Athens (only 158 km) would permit frequent visits. But your presence at our Centre is in no way essential to the programme of treatment your family member will be following. Our suggestion is to come to the Centre once a week to visit and see how treatment is progressing.
