Jimmy Carter's grandson gives update one year after former POTUS, 99, entered hospice care

This week marks a significant milestone – one year since former President Jimmy Carter entered hospice care. Despite the challenges he’s faced, including the loss of his beloved wife Rosalynn and his own health struggles, Carter’s spirit remains as strong as ever.

Carter’s grandson, Jason Carter, recently provided an update on his condition, saying, “After a year in hospice, we have no expectations for his body on a daily basis. But we know that his spirit is as strong as ever.” The entire Carter family is appreciative of the support and love that Jimmy has received throughout the past year.

“One year after entering hospice care, President Carter continues to be at home with his family,” the family shared. “We are grateful for the many expressions of love we have received and the continued respect for our privacy during this time.”

The family is also grateful that Carter’s decision to enter hospice care initiated important conversations on this topic across the country. It’s a subject that deserves attention and understanding.

In a remarkable turn of events, Carter finds himself among the six percent of people who have lived beyond a year after entering hospice care. However, the passing of his wife Rosalynn has affected him deeply. His doctor, Dr. Michael Raines, expressed concern over Carter’s well-being after the loss, acknowledging the profound impact of losing a long-term partner and friend.
