One of Kim's suggestions to her audience about caregiving: "....never feel guilty about asking for help."
“When you are open and honest with people with what you’re going through, they just want to support you,” Kim Campbell said.
This event was sponsored by the Morning Pointe Foundation.

Not sure this is the right place but Kim Campbell will talk about being an Alzheimer's Caregiver in the Dallas area tonight. A small article was in the Dallas Morning News. It is in Lake Highlands and no I am not attending, but nice to know the word is getting around so more people are aware of this terrible disease. Thanks Kim for spreading the word to others. It is listed as "Kim Campbell, wife and caregiver of country music legend Glen Campbell." At 6 PM Monday, she will speak about her journey as an Alzheimer's caregiver.
