Since this past April, singer Glen Campbell has been living in a special care facility due to advances in his battle with Alzheimer’s disease. He had previously been living with his family, including his wife Kim, at his home in Nashville, but the task of caring for him had become too great for the family to handle alone.

In a recent interview, though, Campbell’s daughter Debby (who lives in Arizona) said that, while her dad is “doing good,” she feels he his living situation is less than ideal.

“I think my dad deserves better than this,” Debby Campbell told Country Weekly. “I’m not saying it’s bad by any means, but I don’t think he’s getting the attention that he needs. If I felt that [his family in Nashville] was spending hours with him and eating meals with him, it would be different. If I lived there, I would want to spend from the time he wakes in the morning until the evening with him . . . But why can’t I do that in the comfort of my own home with him instead of flying to Nashville and going to a care facility?”

Debby said that she she would prefer to relocate her father to her home in Arizona, but Glen’s wife Kim has not yet responded to a recent request.  “I want to take on that responsibility,” Debby said, adding: “He wants to go home. Numerous times he has told me that.”
