Former President Jimmy Carter Enters Home Hospice Care At 98, Charity Says

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter entered hospice care at age 98 on Saturday, the Carter Center said. “After a series of short hospital stays, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter today decided to spend his remaining time at home with his family and receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention,” the charity, created by Carter and his wife Rosalynn in 1982, said in a statement.

According to the organization, his family, who are requesting privacy, and his care team are behind him. Carter’s grandson, former Georgia state Sen. Jason Carter, said in a tweet he saw his grandparents on Friday. “They are at peace, and—as always—their home is full of love,” he said.
