Tabitha, your answer for Elder Care, in partnership with LeadingAge Nebraska, proudly brought to Lincoln last week an exclusive premiere of the award-winning documentary, Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.
Welcoming nearly 1,500 patrons to two showings at the Rococo Theatre, audiences enjoyed an intimate and touching portrait of the country music superstar’s aging journey through dementia, including his courageous final tour that spanned more than 150 shows in 2012 and 2013.
Between the afternoon and evening screenings, Tabitha hosted a community forum on memory care, including national and regional dementia experts, film producer James Keach and Campbell’s wife, Kim. Collaboration from title sponsor Vetter Heath Services, along with silver sponsorships from the Alzheimer’s Association, Eastmont Towers and Rural Health Development, also helped make the event possible.
Earlier in the week, CNN announced it had purchased domestic broadcast rights to the film and has plans to air the documentary later this year.
Campbell’s final anthem, I’m Not Gonna Miss You, an original composition from the movie soundtrack, won a 2015 Grammy award for Best Country Song and was nominated for an Academy Award.
As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
