APB's Kim Campbell Founds the Kim & Glen Campbell Foundation
15 May 2019
APB speaker Kim Campbell, widow of country music star Glen Campbell and founder of CareLiving.org, has founded the Kim and Glen Campbell Foundation to advance the use of music as medicine to alleviate depression, manage behaviors and boost the immune system.
After Glen’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis in 2011, Kim tirelessly cared for her husband throughout his battle with the disease. She witnessed firsthand the positive effects music had on her husband’s intellectual functioning and his spirits; music also helped guide her through her depression after his passing. The Kim and Glen Campbell Foundation will help reduce the need for pharmacological interventions, not only improving the quality of life for people with cognitive impairment, but for their caregivers as well.
An influential voice for people living with Alzheimer's, Kim continues to passionately bring awareness to the personal impact the disease has on families and caregivers.
