# METIME   #SLEEPMATTERS

 A Mother's Rest is a 501c3 non profit which coordinates affordable respite retreats exclusively for parents, caregivers, and spouses of individuals with disabilities.  Acknowledging the extraordinary efforts they put in, we are creating affordable ways for them to make frequent respite and fellowship a proactive part of their health regimen.  

Our new "ME TIME" Respite Program is designed to offer more flexible, as-needed respite opportunities nationwide! 

*** The therapeutic fellowship that our signature 3-night, whole-house respite retreats provide for parents & caregivers can not be duplicated.     That free-style, small group experience is incredibly healing and remains our core service model/format.  ***

Many more B&B inns want to support our mamas, but are not in a financial position to offer those heavily discounted, whole-house rates. And many more mamas may be able to get the rest they need with more participating locations at convenient times for their challenging schedule.    The need for respite is SO great and EVERYWHERE.  

With enough B&B partners, our new "ME TIME" program will close the gap a lot for caregivers and B&B partners alike. 

"ME TIME" makes it possible for more B&B's to participate by offering  flexible, onesie-twosie respite visits, AS NEEDED, at reasonably discounted and customizable rates year-round.   Similar to AAA, "ME TIME" allows for solo moms or couples to come on their own, booking just one room when it's convenient for them, as opposed to a group retreat in the whole house. 

This is a membership drive that supports both AMR and our caregivers.  Only verified members are eligible for "Me Time" retreats.  

HOW TO BE AN AMR "Me Time" PARTNER

 

Offer your full inn at $150 per guest/room ($50 per night) for just three nights on dates convenient to you.

 

Through our partnership with you, A Mother's Rest provides:

  • Full inclusion in our local and national press releases 

  • An event page featuring this event, and your inn, on our website.

  • Prominent & permanent home page visibility

  • Weekly social media sharing on Facebook and Twitter. 

  • Promotional materials including brochures and drink coasters for your living areas

 

Here is a little more info about what happens next.

 

  • AMR is a 501c3 tax exempt registered non profit.

  • We're looking for one Fri-Mon 3-night weekend, dates at your convenience,  that we can offer to our online network of moms & other caregivers for $150 for the whole 3 nights plus breakfast.  If you're able to host more than once a year, that is much appreciated! 

  • These retreats are typically single occupancy in the rooms, unless a room has two separate beds or we agree to host a couples retreat.  If it is a couples retreat, the cost is $190 for the weekend.

  • The majority of our retreats book out solid. When they don't, we give you plenty of time to release your rooms to other guests.

  • Once we agree on a date, you'd block all of your rooms off for that time period,

  • I'd set up an event page for you similar to this one:  Caregiver Respite Retreat: Old Fort, NC (amothersrest.org)

  • Your inn logo and link would also be added prominently and permanently to our home page.

  • AMR does all of the marketing , advertising, and registration for the event.

  • You don't have to field any phone calls or email inquiries from the individual guests.  We handle all of that for you!

  • I will send a rooming list and funds to you directly from A Mother's Rest via check the week before the event.

  • Our retreats are completely free-style.  They are meant to offer recuperative rest.  We do not offer any "programs", only quiet, respite time for the ladies to do as much or as little as they want.

  • Once the parents register, we set up a private FB event group just for them to be able to get to know each other ahead of the trip, and then communicate during and after.

  • We don't need anything from you as the innkeeper other than what you already provide.  Breakfast, a smile, and some guidance on activities, restaurants, massage options, etc.

  • We will submit local and national press releases about the event, and hope they contact you for an interview!

  • AMR does not make any money from these retreats. At this time, we are completely volunteer staffed, and depend on private donations for our basic operating expenses.

  • Take a look at our growing EVENT CALENDAR!

  • READ OUR REVIEWS!  Our parents value this time away so greatly.
