Concerns over the Alzheimer music tour of Glen Campbell
By Evergreen,

Watching this news video about country star Glenn Campbell doing a final music tour despite being diagnosed with Alzheimer has me really concerned. Just watch the video and you will notice that the Alzheimer’s effect has already started. Campbell forgets what he is talking about, forgets his age and how he met his wife. It is painful to watch. Now he is going on tour. Is this the best idea? The family says music is key therapy tool for Alzheimers. It may be, but this tour could be a disaster and make things worse. The family stated previously they wanted to go public about the Alzheimer’s in case he stumbled in concert. I defer the final decision to the family, but I worry that the may be real trouble ahead.
