Moravian Manor proudly presents Kim Campbell, wife of legendary country/ pop star Glen Campbell.
Kim was married to Glen Campbell for 34 years until his passing in
August 2017, following a long and very public battle with Alzheimer’s. The
documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, shared their family’s journey with
the world and opened up a national conversation about the disease.
Determined to help other families on the same journey, Kim founded
CareLiving.org, to encourage caregivers to take care of themselves, and to
improve the quality of life of families living with dementia through education, advocacy, and real-world change. She also established The Kim and Glen Campbell Foundation to promote the use of “music as medicine” to alleviate depression, manage behaviors, boost the immune system, improve cognition, and alter the brain chemistry associated with the wellbeing and stress reduction, augmenting or reducing the need of pharmacological interventions.
Among her many accolades, Kim recently received the Alzheimer’s Drug
Discovery Foundation – Great Ladies Award, the US Against Alzheimer’s –
Women Making Change Award, and the Alzheimer’s Association – Caregiver
