Hi Marcia:

Gladly, Al put in his 2 cents before me... so all I have to do is agree with him. I cared for my wife at home for 4 years and it is believed that home care can account for considerable longevity with ALS. (The nurses told me!) While I agree that it is important for your dad to be with you, and Castelgar is beautiful, it is probably safer all around for him to be with you and your family if you can swing it... wherever you are. Especially if it is in an area that is close to a major medical support facility and ALS clinic. It's a big commitment for everybody, you, your family and your dad.
I wish it was easier for you... Good luck!

T.
