Country music Hall of Famer Glen Campbell is "happy and content" at his new home at a memory care facility in Nashville, Tenn., his wife Kim Woolen told Country Music Weekly.

People magazine reported Friday that Campbell's family moved the star to an undisclosed facility in the country music capital following a three-year battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Woolen and other family members attended the debut of the documentary "Glen Campbell . . . I'll Be Me," at the 2014 Nashville Film Festival on Friday. The film depicts how the disease has affected Campbell, his wife and their three adult children.

"He has trouble communicating," Woolen told Country Music Weekly. "(But) he's happy and content and still has his sense of humor. He's doing pretty well, considering everything. We see him every day. We had him out to the house last night and we all had dinner together with the family. We have always loved it here."

Country music singer Bryan White announced his support for Campbell and the new documentary.

The country star, best known for his hit "Rhinestone Cowboy," announced his Alzheimer's diagnosis three years ago.

"There were five of us taking care of him and we were all completely exhausted," Woolen, Campbell's fourth wife, told People. "No one was getting any sleep and we were just struggling every second to keep him safe — we felt like it wasn't safe anymore."

Campbell, who has sold more than 45 million albums over his career, was inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005.
