n 2013, longtime singer with a string of hits Glen Campbell announced that he has Alzheimer’s Disease and finished a last farewell tour. Within a few month, he entered a memory car facility to alleviate his family from the care he needs 24/7. However, music is becoming a large part of his therapy, be self-help or otherwise.

Campbell, his family, and treatment staff found that music helps him maintain memories and much of his cognition. He has a guitar with him and performs for the other clients and staff says he feels good. He will sing and play as long as he is able to do so, usually in the living room of the residential center, where fellow clients and staff gather to listen. It is surely nice to have a music legend living among them.



A documentary film about Glen Campbell’s final tour and his Alzheimer’s care center is called Glen Campbell . . . I’ll Be Me. It premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in April 2014 and won the Grand Jury Honor at the festival.
