Glen Campbell is slipping into the late stages of Alzheimers. His daughter Ashley tells Rolling Stone that even though he is physically quite healthy, his mental status has declined seriously.
“He’s calm most of the time, which is kind of all you can ask for in the late stages, that he’s calm, content and happy and feels a lot of love in his life. Because he has aphasia, he can’t really communicate very well. He doesn’t really understand anything that anyone tells him anymore and he can’t communicate with us very well. But he understands body language and sometimes very small words.”
“Overall, he’s just very happy and content in his own world and we just love hanging out with him. It’s all we can ask for.”
Ashley is featured in the documentary “I’ll Be Me”, which will air Sunday night on CNN.
