Casey Kasem
is in terrible shape ... his mind is almost gone and he's unable to function -- this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The document outlines the mental state of the legendary founder of "America's Top 40" radio program.  According to the examining physician, Casey has

-- major impairment to short term, long term and immediate recall memory

-- major impairment to verbally communicate

-- major impairment to perform simple calculations, plan simple tasks and reason logically.

-- severe disorganized thinking

-- moderate hallucinations

The document was filed by Julie, one of Casey's daughters who is trying to become conservator.  Casey's wife of 33 years, Jean, is fighting the move to take control away from her.

The doctor says Casey has been sliding downhill for the last 3 to 4 years.  He's suffering from advanced Parkinson's and dementia.

His mind is almost gone? Sounds like he would be the perfect new cast member of Keeping up with the Kartrashians.

I wish nothing but pain and suffering for jean for being such a C**t to his kids. I wish her nothing but pain and agony for the rest of her miserable life. I hope she gets some jacked up disease that eats her body away but leave her mind clear so she can be stuck in her own personal hell and her child stupidly keeps her alive for years on torturous machines till all the money that bitch sucked out of Casey is gone. then die a lonely death.

That's very sad when someone deteriorates like that. Even more sad when family is at war over the person. Prayers to Casey Kasem - hopefully his suffering won't last too much longer. As awful as that sounds, it's true. The man obviously has no quality of life anymore.

God TMZ, how much did the kids of this poor senile old man pay you for the nearly daily hit pieces on his wife of 33 years?

This women has been his wife for 33 years-she has every right to make decisions regarding his health and well being. It would be great if the family could get along but the children are really out of line and need to back off.

It's really sad that a man who was so much a part of America's music history has come to this.
