Country and pop singer Glen Campbell, battling Alzheimer’s disease for about five years now, has lost the ability to speak, his wife, Kim, announced this week. Campbell has been in a full-time care facility in Nashville since November, after briefly leaving that facility to return to his family’s care.
“He’s healthy, he’s content,” Kim Campbell told WTSP News on Wednesday in Tampa Bay, Florida. “He’s lost most of his ability to communicate verbally. He has severe aphasia (communication disorder), but he still understands the language of smiles and kisses, and he enjoys food.”
