Glen Campbell has been moved into an Alzheimer’s facility, reports People.com. The legendary singer, 78, has been suffering from the disease for over three years.
“He was moved to an Alzhemier’s facility last week,” a family friend told People. “I’m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We’ll know more next week.”
Glen and his wife Kim decided to go public with his diagnosis because Glen was embarking on a farewell tour. The couple wanted to let fans know of his condition in case he forgot lyrics or messed up a song during the performances.

The Goodbye Tour was filmed for Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me,
a documentary which makes its debut during the 2014 Nashville Film Festival
this weekend. The film follows Glen and his family as they deal with the disease while on the road and performing together.
“I still love making music,” Glen told People in 2011. “And I still love performing for my fans. I’d like to thank them for sticking with me through thick and thin.”
