Glen Campbell's wife Kim talks Alzheimer's on a visit to Largo
By Tampa Bay Times
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
"Glen is one of the first people who came out and lived with dementia before the public. It was his choice to do it. He was, I think, really brave. Now we've reached that stage where I am trying to protect his dignity."
Part of that process is not revealing the name of her husband's memory care community.
"It's hard sometimes for fans to understand," she said. "They still want access to him. We allowed that access for so long but now it's time for him to have privacy and dignity." -- Kim Campbell

Hi decoder,
Thank you for your comments. I hope you have many happy memories that you still recall. You sound like a man who has a few good stories I would imagine.
Best wishes,
Mike
PS I love the last picture of Glen by the fire with the guitar. Glen looks so contented.

As one who is 75 and fraying around the edges mentally, I was personally touched by by the doco. (Let's see, Mr. Johnson, charity, tunnel and one more. On a good day I'll recall it.)

My darling wife of 50 years and I found it on Netflix. Thanks for letting them use it.

We cared for her mom during her last years of Alzheimers. It was tragic and hilarious.

I never met Glen, although I worked a few floors above where he did many, many sessions in Studios A and D with Terry Melcher. One reason why I probably never met him is because he mostly worked in the middle of the night while I worked during the day.

For anyone who's looking for a good way to fight off Alzheimers, dementia and just garden-variety memory issues, I have found that memorizing Bible verses and chapters has helped a lot.

Keep The Faith Glen!

Got the People Magazine today--it wasn't available yet at Walgreen's/CVS so I went to the Grocery Store and they had it! It is the Nov. 2, 2015 Issue.....
I am Glad Glen is getting the care he needs once again and also grateful to all that are helping him through this very difficult time. Happy Anniversary Wishes to Glen and Kim-God Bless You Both!

You're welcome, Mike.
It is comforting to know Glen is physically still healthy, he continues to receive the best of care, of course, and Matthew and Brody are still with Glen at his new memory care community.
We appreciate the Campbell family for continuing to update fans.

BTW, the image of the article (shown below) is the complete article and photos.
