Respiratory Wellness

We can help you breathe easily with our Respiratory Wellness program.


We understand that catching your breath when you have a respiratory illness can be difficult. It can also prevent you staying active and mobile which prevents you from getting out and about and enjoying the things you love.

The Respiratory Wellness program is based on current research and helps you to learn how to make small lifestyle changes to conserve your energy, eat well, stay socially active and mobile, stay relaxed and manage your respiratory wellbeing.

A focus of the Respiratory Wellness program is helping you to have any respiratory concerns recognised, diagnosed and treated quickly.

  • Self-manage respiratory conditions.
  • Home modifications to stay at home safely.
  • Prevent respiratory illness progressing.

About the program

The Respiratory program is run once a week in a face-to-face group session over a period of 16 weeks.

Our qualified clinical staff will assess your respiratory health at the beginning of the program so it can be customised to your needs.  Your progress will also be monitored throughout the program and you will receive another health assessment when the program is complete to celebrate how far you’ve come. You will also set goals and enjoy meeting these along the way.

The group sessions provide a safe and supportive environment for you to share the respiratory health challenges you face with others who are having similar experiences.  You will feel supported by staff and enjoy learning along with other participants how to manage your respiratory health to stay living an active and independent life. 

The Respiratory Wellness program is available in a variety of regions across New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland, the Northern Territory and the ACT.
