The Heart Center comprises two separate wings: for independent patients who underwent a cardiac event and for patients who require physical assistance.
Extending your Stay
As part of the supplementary insurances provided by the HMO’s (Health Maintenance Organization), you are entitled to extend your recuperation period by paying only the policyholder’s participation fee and continue your healing and learning process, the one you have already started during the first five days of your stay.
Additional days at the Heart Center, as well additional encounters with the therapists, will strengthen and deepen the experience you underwent. These supplementary days will also allow processing time, relaxation and further insights and you may even acquire a variety of supplemental tools and options intended for healing and contending with diverse existent problems and issues.
The healing process at the Heart Center constitutes an opportunity for rest and relaxation.
Particularly on the first day, the convalescent patients are confused and fatigued from the hospitalization and the road they traversed, and in order to support the healing process, it is important to relax well and go to sleep early. After a personal therapy, we highly recommend to relax and process the experience you underwent. It is recommended to avoid making further plans for the evenings during these days, watch less television and talk as little as possible on the mobile phone – this way, you will allow the process to assimilate within you in the best manner possible.
Likewise, we recommend that you refrain from conducting unnecessary conversations on your mobile phone during the recess times of the workshop and try to ensure that your presence is silent.
Convalescent patients that arrive to the Heart Center and have special needs, disabilities or difficulties, please contact us for further consultation and provision of solutions (patients with diabetes, celiac disease, any types of sensitivities or allergies, physical disabilities, background diseases etc.).
