Fading country star Loretta Lynn will spend her final days in an assisted living facility, RadarOnline.com has learned, and the singer’s famous friends are lining up to say their farewells.

At 87, the music legend’s health problems have become so dire that her family is ready to relocate her to a 24/7 care facility, according to insiders.

The Coal Miner’s Daughter singer – who last appeared on stage on April 2 for her star-studded birthday party – was stricken by a debilitating stroke in May 2017. But as she fought back to regain her speech and motor skills, she fell and suffered a broken hip, which left her largely unable to walk under her own power.

“It’s so sad to see Loretta breaking down,” a source told Radar. “She needs a walker or a wheelchair to get around now, and on top of that, she suffers from glaucoma, so her vision is severely compromised.

The combination of poor eyesight and poor balance is a disaster waiting to happen.

“Loretta already has in-house nursing care, and of course, her four kids are there with her most every day. But there’s still a fear that another fall is going to kill her, and she would be better off in a facility where she can be monitored at all times,” the source said.
