Kim Campbell was married to music legend Glen Campbell for thirty-four years until his passing in August of 2017, following a long and very public battle with Alzheimer’s. The award-winning documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, shared their family’s journey with the world and opened up a national conversation about the disease. The film’s success gave Kim a platform to advocate for people with dementia and their caregivers from Capitol Hill to the United Nations. As a public speaker with American Program Bureau, Kim has worked tirelessly to remove the stigma of long-term care and to promote the Senior Living Industry.
Kim created CareLiving.org to encourage caregivers to take care of themselves while caring for others and established the Kim and Glen Campbell Foundation (include link) to advance the use of music as medicine to restore and rebuild neural pathways, alleviate depression, manage behaviors and boost cognition.
Kim sits on the board of Abe’s Garden – an Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence located in Nashville, TN, holds a BFA in Dance from East Carolina University, studied interior design at UCLA, and is an honorary faculty member of the Erickson school of Aging Studies, University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
In her new best-selling book, GENTLE ON MY MIND, Kim shares the never-before-told story of her life with an entertainment giant and how her faith sustained her while caring for and loving him amid the extraordinary challenges of Alzheimer’s. In response to COVID 19, Kim is currently working with Grammy winning American songwriter Jimmy Webb (Wichita Lineman, Highwayman, MacArthur Park), to create virtual music and movement programming for seniors.
