In two weeks, a very special event will take place during the 2015 Spring Conference & Trade Show. Normally a gathering of California Assisted Living professionals engaging in high-quality networking and educational opportunities, the event will open its doors to residents, family members, and the community-at-large to enjoy an exclusive screening of Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me.
CALA staff members got the chance to view the award-winning documentary earlier this year, and Campbell’s poignant final song and video were featured on this blog last year. Now, we are so excited to give the gift of this hope-filled film to others.
The Campbell family’s willingness to share this experience so publicly gives a human face to the disease, helping to reduce stigma and raise awareness. While the film does include scenes that depict Campbell’s anger, confusion, and sadness, he continually maintains his sense of humor. More than anything, it is his ability to face Alzheimer’s with a smile that gives hope to those fighting for better diagnosis and treatment. Or, as Glen Campbell himself put it, “I have cried and I have laughed. Laughing’s a hell of a lot better.”
