Glen Campbell moved into care facility - report

WENN

Country music legend Glen Campbell has reportedly been moved into an Alzheimer's care facility as he continues to battle the condition that robbed him of his career.

The "Rhinestone Cowboy" singer has been suffering from the memory-stealing disease for over three years, and headed out on a farewell tour in 2012, while he could still recall the lyrics to his songs.

The 78 year old was admitted to the care facility last week, according to People.

A source close to the family tells the website, "I'm not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We'll know more next week."

The news comes just two days before a documentary about the singer/songwriter's final tour, titled Glen Campbell... I'll Be Me, debuts at the 2014 Nashville Film Festival in Tennessee.

the website took me to Glen Campbell and I thought is was for Miley.  I'm a nurse and cannot imagine what the Family is going through, My Mom is going through some  confusion post/ after surgery and it is very sad and frustrating, because seems the negative comes out at this time, with behavior you cannot believe its your loved one!!  I THINK HE IS A GREAT SINGER, AS FAR AS HIS PERSONAL LIFE AND WHAT HE HAS DONE WITH RELATIONSHIPS IS WATER UNDER THE DAM.  WE ALL DO THINGS IN OUR LIFE WE REGRET.  I'M AM NO YOUNG CHICK THANK GOD WOULD'T WANT TO DO IT AGAIN, UNLESS I KNOW WHAT I KNOW NOW!!

MILEY I feel sad for,  looking through the eyes of a mother, and grandmother, I'm worried about her, that is all, I wish her well

cher28, surfandsee and thomas, etc....................the fact that he was a wife beater cannot be disputed. Not saying I didn't like his music. But you seem to condone it simply because you're mesmerized by him. Pretty sad. Ya, war vet, of sorts. And I'm far from perfect. But at least I know right from wrong and have the balls to speak out against wrong and stand up for right.

This is a sad way to end your life, being robbed of your own identity, at least to yourself. But at least he won't suffer physically. His music will always live on and when he goes to be with God, his memory will be restored and all will be perfect for eternity. Farewell. We will all remember you through the music that you left for us and we thank you with all our hearts.
