David Cassidy Admits He Has Dementia Following Final Performance (Video)

David Cassidy has revealed that he is suffering from dementia following his final performance this past weekend.

The 66-year-old Partridge Family star shared the news with the crowd at his concert on Saturday night (February 18) in Agoura Hills, Calif., according to TMZ.

While on stage, David appeared to slur, forgot the lyrics to his songs, and fell onto one of the monitors.

David says he is retiring for health reasons – he has dealt with substance abuse issues in the past and has been battling dementia that runs in his family.

“I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming,” he told People. “I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions. I want to love. I want to enjoy life.”

Watch the performance video below.

    I don’t think you fall off the stage from dementia…Being drunk, yes.

  • Debbie Parker

    Yes, that is a sign. My grandfather had this…here are the symptons
    People may experience:
    Cognitive: memory loss, mental decline, confusion in the evening hours, disorientation, inability to speak or understand, making things up, mental confusion, or inability to recognize common things
    Behavioral: irritability, personality changes, restlessness, lack of restraint, or wandering and getting lost
    Mood: anxiety, loneliness, or mood swings
    Psychological: depression, hallucination, or paranoia
    Muscular: inability to combine muscle movements or unsteady walking
    Also common: falling, jumbled speech, or nervousness

  • Do Tell

    A dearest older friend of mine has it. She fell recently. I didn’t see Alzheimer’s disease coming because she is in such excellent heath for a senior. She is not on ANY medications–nothing for heart, blood pressure, diabetes etc. Yet, she got this. I learned that her mother also had it before she died. My friend still knows who I am, but her short-term memory is really bad. It breaks my heart.

    I would expect David Cassidy to drink or do something to drown his sorrows. He knows he has it. My friend still does not know she has it. It’s depressing to know you are on that downward spiraling road.

    I pray that DC has good family relationships and that his children or relatives will take good care of him.
