“He’s healthy, he’s content,” she said. “He’s lost most of his ability to communicate verbally. He has severe aphasia, but he still understands the universal language of smiles and kisses, and he enjoys food.”

Campbell is currently living in a ‘memory care community’ that provides constant care as well as art and music therapy.
