Country music legend Glen Campbell was recently moved into an Alzheimer's care facility after his health has continued to decline.
The move was confirmed to Country Weekly by Campbell's publicist. In an email the publicist wrote, "Yes, it is true that Glen has been checked into an Alzheimer's facility."
The Country Music Hall of Fame musician was diagnosed with the disease back in 2011.
According to CBS DFW, a friend of the family spoke with the media when reports first surfaced and said, "I'm not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We'll know more next week."
When the 77-year-old Campbell, who has released over 70 albums during his career, learned he had Alzheimer's three years ago, he went on a final U.S.-wide tour and released the album Ghost on the Canvas. Then in 2013, an album recorded around the same time in 2011 called See You There was released in 2013.
Country Weekly notes that Campbell has a documentary, called Glen Campbell ... I'll Be Me, due to hit the Nashville Film Festival on Friday.
