Touching! Glen Campbell’s Journey With Alzheimer’s Really Resonated With Me!The Alzheimer's Site
Glen Campbell, a classic country music superstar, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. As heartbreaking as it is for his family to see this disease rob him of what he does best, they all just try to stay positive and take life day by day. Glen’s supportive wife, Kim, is patient and kind with him and she gently reminds him how old he is, or how many daughters they have. Since the diagnosis of his Alzheimer’s, Glen no longer is able to tour because he often forgets the lyrics to his songs. His sense of humor, however, is still greatly intact.
Watch as Glen and his family share his journey with Alzheimer’s disease.
