Glen Campbell is Alzheimer Stage 6 and his family could use some prayers as the Rhinestone Cowboy is at the end of his journey with Alzheimer’s. Glen Campbell’s wife of over 30 years really missed her husband so she had brought him home from the memory facility last summer where he had lived for almost a year.
His stay at home lasted only 7 weeks as he has become harder to manage now that he has entered late Stage 6 Alzheimer. What that means as a diagnosis is that Campbell and his family are now facing the end of this disease. This is what is happening to Campbell mentally, physically and emotionally on a daily basis. This information was taken from the National Alzheimer website. Some of his symptoms might vary but this is the reality of what they are all going through right now and what many other families are facing and dealing with as well.
Patients with the sixth stage of Alzheimer’s disease need constant supervision and frequently require professional care. Symptoms include: Confusion or unawareness of environment and surroundings Major personality changes and potential behavior problems The need for assistance with activities of daily living such as toileting and bathing Inability to recognize faces except closest friends and relatives Inability to remember most details of personal history Loss of bowel and bladder control Wandering Glen Campbell is Alzheimer Stage 6 There are only 7 Stages of Alzheimer. The last update delivered by the family was back in October of 2015 at which time his wife stated he was end stage 6. Prayers are clearly needed for the family at this time.
We include part of a powerful documentary about Glen and Alzheimers disease .
