"I like that Castleber is local ..."

What I liked

I like that Castleber is local to my family's needs. My grandfather has recntly been diagnosed with stomach cancer and at 80 years old sees no point in persuing any chemotherapy treatment. Castleberg is just a stones throw from his bunalow, if Castleberg is closed down he will be referred to Manorlands in Haworth. My grandfathers wish is to die at home, close to his family, if there is an emergency and he was at Manorlands we would have to travel for an hour to be with him, my randmother has COPD and cannot handle long journeys, Castleberg must stay open.
