The Carter Center has provided an update on the health of former U.S. First Lady Rosalynn Carter, revealing that she has entered hospice care at home. The 96-year-old wife of former President Jimmy Carter was diagnosed with dementia six months ago. The Carter family, including the former president, is spending time together and with their family during this period. The family has requested privacy and expressed gratitude for the outpouring of love and support.
Former President Jimmy Carter, who is turning 99 years old, has also faced health challenges but continues to defy expectations. Despite a diagnosis of melanoma that metastasized to his brain and liver in 2015, medical professionals predicted his death in February 2023. However, Carter has continued to live and engage in various activities, including following the 2020 race, cheering for his favorite MLB team, the Atlanta Braves, and discussing the news. He recently surprised the Plains Peanut Festival by making an appearance with his wife.
