    We are a network of B&Bs offering respite retreats to parents/caregivers of loved ones with disabilities or chronic illness.

    The Gift of Rest
    A Mother’s Rest is a network of non-profit, respite retreat inns created exclusively to serve parents & other caregivers of loved ones with extra needs. 

    Here at AMR, we support parents & caregivers of just about EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE. As a secular organization, caregivers of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome. Many of our guests are “extra needs” parents, of children and adults. We also welcome ALL foster/adoptive parents (with or without diagnosed disability), special educators, spouses caring for injured /chronically ill husbands/wives, spouses of Wounded Warriors, as well as those caring for their own parents facing Alzheimers/Dementia and other age related illnesses at home.

    We are blessed to have a growing national network of existing bed and breakfast inns who host several retreats per year at discounted rates. We also now own TWO respite inns that function entirely on donations from our guests and the community. The Terrace Guest House is located in New Market, MD. and Lawton Place Manor is located in the mountains of North Georgia. Both of our signature inns are open year-round, and your donations make those retreats possible for ALL caregivers who visit. 

    With the help of inn partner discounts, corporate sponsorship, small business donations, church & civic group support, we aim to keep the costs to parents as low as possible. All donations to A Mother’s Rest are tax deductible. It doesn’t get any easier to make respite accessible and affordable to all extra needs caregivers.

    Wonderful blog post from Andrea, the founder of A Mothers Rest.

    I'm Fine

    This year, millions of families are suffering in so many more ways than usual. Perpetual lockdowns, travel bans, gathering bans, no school, no church, no work, no income….if you’re fortunate enough to live in a state that is not locked down, count your blessings.

    Depression, anxiety, mental health crises, child abuse, drug overdoses, suicide, bankruptcies, isolation….and most of all FEAR….have consumed millions of the parents & caregivers we serve. The grief is tangible.

    At A Mother’s Rest, we have worked hard all year to keep our chins up and our doors open, seeking continued financial support to support these people who need us even more than before. And we ARE open.

    AMR seeks to redefine “respite” as it pertains to the disability community. AMR addresses the long-term health of special needs parents & caregivers by coordinating frequent & affordable respite retreats nationwide.

    Our respite retreats offer free-style, no expectations, truly recuperative rest and therapeutic fellowship for moms, dads, and other caregivers who have loved ones with disabilities and/or chronic illness.

    Proactively caring for the mental and physical health of parents through various respite programs can prevent caregiver burnout, decrease healthcare costs (to individuals and insurers), and contribute to a healthier family environment overall.

    Your donations support mamas and other caregivers with recuperative rest and therapeutic, in-person fellowship that just can’t be duplicated on line. Thank you!
