BAR HARBOR — The Coach Stop Inn recently hosted a respite retreat for caregivers of people with extra needs, organized by the Maryland-based nonprofit A Mother’s Rest.
“The benefits of proactive self‑care have been long overlooked in the disability community,” the nonprofit said in a statement. “Acknowledging the emotional and physical impacts parents and caregivers face is imperative in ensuring the best long term care to their loved ones.”
The mission of A Mother’s Rest is to provide affordable, in‑person respite and fellowship opportunities for mothers and other caregivers of children/adults/spouses with disabilities. The group partners with inns across the country to hold the retreats.
