White Castle, LA, January 20, 2019 – The Nottoway Plantation is hosting a 3‑night respite retreat February 1st ‑ 4th for couples of extra needs children. This beautifully restored 1850’s sugar cane estate is the South’s largest antebellum mansion and a member of Historic Hotels of America. Couples can enjoy the outdoor pool, tennis courts and an onsite spa and salon, or simply relax in their rooms during their stay.
This type of retreat is one of many scheduled throughout 2019 that AMR coordinates as part of our mission to provide much‑needed rest and relaxation to caregivers of children with extra needs across the country. The benefits of proactive self‑care have been long overlooked in the special needs community. Acknowledging the emotional and physical strains parents and caregivers face is imperative in ensuring the best long‑term care to their children.
The mission of AMR is to provide year‑round, in‑person respite and fellowship opportunities for mothers and other caregivers of children/adults/spouses with special needs through partnerships with inns across the country like The Afton House Inn. This peaceful weekend retreat will afford guests of the program the opportunity for recuperative rest and rejuvenation.
One primary goal of AMR is to build a national network of generous B&B inns like The Nottoway Plantation. “Inns Who Give Back” support these respite‑focused retreats with donated/discounted lodging for just three nights per year. Some inns even offer their hospitality more than once in a calendar year. To best serve our families, we work together to make retreats accessible, affordable and frequent to parents and other caregivers by offering rooms at a discounted price. These weekends tend to sell out fast prompting our partner inns to open their doors to AMR multiple times a year.
