Unfortunately, as Conway got older, he began to suffer from ill health, leaving him unable to star in 2017’s The Carol Burnett Show: 50th Anniversary Special. And even worse news was to come. In August 2018 People related that Conway was now in the throes of dementia.
Furthermore, court papers acquired by website The Blast revealed that Conway’s daughter, Kelly, wanted conservatorship over her dad. That wasn’t all, though. Charlene, Kelly alleged, was “planning to move [her husband] out of the excellent skilled nursing facility he is currently at.” And just the news that the one-time actor was in a nursing home may have come as a shock to fans.
