Legendary Comedian Tim Conway Battling Dementia, Confined to a Wheelchair

Tim Conway — best known for roles on “McHale’s Navy” and “The Carol Burnett Show” — is suffering from dementia and his daughter is asking the court to control of his medical care because his current wife is trying to move him out the facility he is in.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Conway’s daughter, Kelly, is asking a court to appoint her the conservator of her father’s person so she can handle his medical treatments.

Kelly claims Conway’s current wife, Charlene, is “planning to move him out of the excellent skilled nursing facility he is currently at.” She claims the new facility will not give Conway access to “registered nurses at all times and his 24-hour caregiver and speech therapist (to help with swallowing).”

According to his daughter, Conway is “almost entirely unresponsive” and is suffering from dementia.

She is asking the court to grant the conservatorship so she can properly administer medications “for the care and treatment of dementia.”

In addition to his work on “McHale’s Navy” and “The Carol Burnett Show,” Conway is perhaps best known for his character Dorf.
