"He is conscious and surrounded by family and friends, nothing is imminent and we are taking it day by day," Cassidy’s publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen, told the station. He is also reportedly on a breathing tube.

The 67-year-old announced he has been battling dementia earlier this year.

Cassidy shot to fame playing Keith Partridge on The Partridge Family, sitcom about a mother and five children who formed a rock and roll band.

He then went on to have a successful solo career as a singer.

In more recent years, Cassidy has battled with alcohol addiction which he has openly talked about.

He was arrested for driving under the influence three times from 2010 and 2014. He filed for bankruptcy in 2015.

He called his struggle “very humbling” but also “humiliating” in 2014 interview with CNN.
