She also revealed that Glen now has “complete aphasia.” Aphasia is the inability to understand or express language. It is common for Alzheimer’s patients or those suffering brain trauma. They may still have the capacity to utter words or, as in Glen’s case, sing to themselves, but they are usually unaware of appropriate responses.
Kim, who remains a positive light in this sad situation, added, “He understands [the] universal language of love, smiles, kisses, and hugs.”
Glen’s beautiful and loving wife also spoke out about the importance of caregivers also taking care of themselves, even establishing CareLiving.org as a resource for those special people.
The country icon entered a memory care community in Nashville last year, but prior to that, Kim was administering his care at home. “I knew I needed to take care of myself because I was going down with it,” she said. “I didn’t want to become the second victim of the disease.”
