LOUISVILLE, KY (April 3, 2018) – The Morning Pointe Foundation is sponsoring a free Alzheimer’s caregiver event featuring Kim Campbell, wife of late Grammy award-winning country music legend Glen Campbell, on April 19, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Middletown Christian Church, located at 500 N. Watterson Trail in Louisville.
This is the fifth event sponsored by the Foundation featuring Kim's message of hope that has touched many in the aging population. Over the past four years, Kim has shared her message in Brentwood, Chattanooga and Knoxville, TN, and Lexington, offering inspiration to audiences across the Southeast. The event will be hosted by Rachel Platt, anchor/reporter for WHAS-TV 11, and is sponsored in partnership with WHAS-TV 11, Guardian Pharmacy, and Morning Pointe senior living and memory care communities in Louisville.
Kim has toured the nation, carrying her heartfelt message of hope as she shares her personal journey as a caregiver to Glen, who passed away in 2017 with Alzheimer’s disease. With Kim at his side, Glen’s whirlwind goodbye tour in 151 cities was filmed and broadcast on CNN during the summer of 2015. Their documentary "I’ll Be Me" is available on DVD.
Morning Pointe communities, in partnership with The Morning Pointe Foundation, have carried educational initiatives across the Southeast to support caregivers of those living with Alzheimer's and memory disorders.
The Foundation has also endowed scholarships in colleges and universities across the state, awarding nursing students pursuing careers in senior healthcare, and promoting awareness of Alzheimer's disease and memory care.
"Morning Pointe has made a commitment to spreading awareness about the needs of Alzheimer's caregivers," says Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior Living. "For several years, we have been proud to provide a platform for Kim's message, as her story has brought much inspiration to each person who hears it."
“When you make yourself vulnerable and you are honest about what you are going through, people want to love and support you,” Kim says, reflecting on the impact she and Glen made when reaching out to others who share similar experiences with Alzheimer’s disease.
“Kim’s message is truly unforgettable,” says Mandy Taylor, regional vice president of operations at Morning Pointe Senior Living. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to share her message of hope with those in the Central Kentucky area whose lives have been touched by Alzheimer’s disease in some form or fashion.”
