Wellbeing Hub 

Bolton Hospice has redeveloped their day therapy service to help respond to the growing demand for specialist palliative care in our community.

The Wellbeing Hub will be a beautiful, calming space and alongside the current day therapy model will offer a flexible,  drop-in service with access to new wellbeing and support sessions and specialist services so the hospice can help even more local people with life-limiting illnesses.

The Wellbeing Hub offers wellbeing and support sessions and specialist services such as symptom management advice sessions, legal advice & benefits clinics, outpatient clinics, bereavement support sessions, wellbeing sessions such as mindfulness and yoga Pulmonary Rehab and a new relaxing café area.

What is Pulmonary Rehabilitation 

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is an exercise and education programme designed for people with lung disease who experience symptoms of breathlessness.

PR focuses on tailored physical exercise and information that helps people to better understand and manage their condition/s and symptoms, including feeling short of breath. It’s included as a key intervention in the NHS Long Term Plan, which has made respiratory disease a new national clinical priority. Most people who go to PR have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but people with other long-term lung conditions, such as bronchiectasis and pulmonary fibrosis, can also benefit. A PR course typically lasts six to eight weeks, with two sessions of around two hours each week, and includes an individually prescribed exercise and education programme including aerobic exercise and resistance training and lifestyle support.

PR has been shown to support better self-management and reduction in exacerbations, reduction in numbers of acute and emergency admissions and reduction in primary care appointments.




This is the room where the Pulmonary Rehab Sessions take place. It is a spacious, bright and welcoming room, with air conditioning. Just off to the right are two sets of double patio door leading out on to large outdoor veranda overlooking the lush peaceful gardens 




The veranda is peaceful and quiet were you can sit in quiet contemplation following you exercise session, allowing you  to cool down and gently recuperate before leaving to continue you day.
