Respitality is an on-going service for parents and primary caregivers of special needs children, teens and adults by providing a link to bring the hospitality of New Hampshire hotels and inns to parents who deserve a break from their demanding daily routine.
This program provides an opportunity to strengthen the family unit in a very unique way. Enabling parents to refresh their lives in the comfort and relaxing ambiance of a host hotel while their family member whom has special needs is being given the special care that they require.
Respitality has been active in New Hampshire since August 1993 and has provided a wonderful overnight stay at a host hotel to over 4,500 parents for over twenty years. Hotel and Inn partners have graciously donated one or two overnight stays per month, always on an availability basis, and many include a delicious breakfast.
Respitality addresses a major area in all of our lives and that is stress, primarily maintaining mental health. We know being a parent is one tough job and with a special needs family member to care for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, it is even more of a challenge finding a way to relax and enjoy time away.
Parents have enjoyed being able to spend their Respitality time with their loved one, to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, to take a much needed day of solitude or to relax and pamper themselves. The Host Hotels and Inns have received many letters & cards expressing these parents' words of gratitude for this very special "Gift of Time."
Respitality is and continues to be a very important part of a parent's life.
