After a lengthy legal battle, Tim Conway's wife and daughter have finally settled their dispute over the actor's healthcare, Fox News reports.

The 85-year-old star of "The Carol Burnett Show"' has been fighting dementia while his daughter Kelly and wife Charlene have been butting heads over his medical treatment and conservatorship.

The dispute escalated in last August when Kelly filed legal documents requesting that she be appointed sole conservator of her father, alleging that his wife wanted to move Conway out of "the excellent skilled nursing facility he is currently at" to place him in another home that provided less quality healthcare, People noted.

Kelly stated that her father was unable to care for himself physically and was "almost entirely unresponsive." She was granted a temporary restraining order barring Charlene from moving Conway from his current residence. However, the following month Kelly's petition for temporary conservatorship was rejected by a judge, MyNewsLA reported.

Charlene filed legal documents in October, claiming that she should be appointed conservator of her husband should he ever need it. According to USA Today, she also denied Kelly's accusations that she had intended to move Conway from his nursing home.

In a statement to Fox News, a rep for Conway's daughter noted that Kelly was "very happy with the outcome after more than a year of fighting to keep her dad safe and sound," adding that she was "now allowed to see him."

The rep added that Kelly was "looking forward to being an advocate in the future to ensure that children who are being denied access by a step parent to see an ailing parent is granted visitation."
