Glen Campbell's Daughter Wants To Move Him Out Of Facility And In With Her
Glen Campbell's oldest daughter, Debbie, is stepping in to try to move her dad from an Alzheimer's care facility in Nashville to her home outside of Tennessee so she can take care of him around the clock.
Glen's current wife and youngest three children moved him into the special care facility in April but Debbie is concerned that he's not getting the accommodations and attention he deserves.
She told Country Weekly, "My dad deserves better than this. I’m not saying it’s bad by any means, but I don’t think he’s getting the attention that he needs. If I felt that (his family in Nashville) was spending hours with him and eating meals with him, it would be different. If I lived there, I would want to spend from the time he wakes in the morning until the evening with him . . . But why can’t I do that in the comfort of my own home with him instead of flying to Nashville and going to a care facility?"
Debbie says Glen's current accommodations are a small bedroom with a couch.
She added that her famous father has told her that he wants to go home, and that he still recognizes her as his daughter.
Glen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2011.
