God Bless Kim Campbell as she continues to advocate for awareness of Alzheimer's disease, quality care for persons with Alz's, and support for caretakers.
She recently visited Villa at Terracina Grand, a retirement and assisted living facility located in Naples, Florida and participated in an open forum after a special screening of "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me":

Well said, Mike.
With the passing of former first lady Nancy Reagan this week, I couldn't help but think about how well she also protected her husband's--our former president's--dignity and privacy as he succumbed to Alzheimer's disease.

Thanks for posting these videos Dee,
I must say Kim, really is a woman of strength. Despite all the small minded people who attack her she still carries herself with such grace. I think she summed it up so well when she said "life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it". I believe Glen would be so proud of her, if he knew what she has had to deal with over the last couple of years, but still she continues to support him and work hard to keep Alzheimer's in the public eye.

Kim Campbell to speak in Lexington, Kentucky on March 15, 2016. (See article for details.)
Kim Campbell said she speaks out about the disease to help families, because Alzheimer’s “is definitely the most feared disease. You lose control of your life. There are identity issues and autonomy issues.”

She also advises caregivers to give themselves breaks and self-care.

“They talk about the ‘silver tsunami’ that’s coming,” Kim Campbell said of the tide of expected Alzheimer’s cases among Baby Boomers. “The stress for caregivers is enormous.”
