image for Jimmy Carter, oldest living former U.S. president ever, is placed in hospice care

Former President Carter has entered hospice care, having decided to avoid “additional medical intervention,” the Carter Center announced Saturday.

The 98-year-old former president made his decision after recent hospitalizations, according to the Carter Center, a nonprofit group set up to carry out charitable activities supported by the former president and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

“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.

He has the full support of his family and his medical team,” the center said in a statement.

“The Carter family asks for privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by his many admirers,” the nonprofit said.

In 2019, months after the death of former President George H.W. Bush at age 94, Carter became the longest-living former president in U.S. history.

It was the first time they had missed such a ceremony since Carter left office, according to the Associated Press. »
