Glen Campbell's goodbye tour — a moving account of Alzheimer's

As part of its ongoing work with people with Alzheimer’s and their families and caregivers, Volunteers of America is supporting the documentary feature film, “I’ll Be Me,” chronicling Glen Campbell’s Goodbye Tour.

Three years ago, legendary musician Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Campbell and his wife Kim went public with the diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a Goodbye Tour to embrace their remaining time together celebrating Campbell’s extraordinary musical gifts and raising awareness about Alzheimer’s. “I’ll Be Me” follows the Campbell family on their journey as they focus on living in the present while preparing for the future.

VOA-Minnesota offers a full range of services to help those impacted by Alzheimer's and other forms of Dementia to find their way to the most appropriate and affordable care. VOA-MN colleagues will participate in the dialogue that I'll Be Me will bring and we'll keep you informed about the upcoming opportunities to be involved.

Volunteers of America is an exclusive nonprofit sponsor in the production, marketing and distribution of the film and in developing and providing Dementia and Alzheimer's education services for caregivers. Volunteers of America will host screening events in many communities across the country. Events will be specifically aimed at promoting the film’s core values of community, understanding, acceptance and the drive to educate people about adults whose lives are affected by Alzheimer’s.
