Bolton Hospice / Wellbeing Hub

Our consultant-led team of doctors, nurses and other professional staff provide expert care and support for local people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families, in the hospice and at home. We not only take care of patients' physical needs, we consider their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. And we support families and close friends, both during illness and in bereavement.
Bolton Hospice Wellbeing Hub

Many people are under the misconception that a hospice is where people with a terminal disease go to die. This is certainly not the case, 50 percent of people who go in for hospice care, return home after a short stay. The hospice is not only for terminally ill patients, but patients who have a longterm debilitating disease of illness, which can be a big strain on them, physically, mentally and emotionally. The Hospice is a place they can go to have a rest, recharge their batteries, before retuning home to continue with their life. It is not just for people living with a longterm disease, but for their family and carers too.

Bolton Hospice and Wellbeing Hub is like a 5-star hotel, in fact if someone put a blindfold on you and took you into the reception. When they removed it, you would belive you were in the reception of a luxuary 5-Star Hotel. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the decor is exquisite and tasteful, creating a comfortable and relaxing ambience.

The Wellbeing Hub has a modern comfortable Coffee Bar, providing a range of different Tea’s Coffee’s Hot Chocolate, Tasty snacks, Soups, Salads, Sandwiches and Cake, From there you are invited into the Consulting Rooms, Alternative Therapy Treatment Rooms, Craft Workshops, Large Comfortable Air-Conditioned Lounge, overlooking stunning Colourful Terraced Gardens.
