Former President Jimmy Carter in Hospice Care, to Spend “Remaining Time at Home”

Former President Jimmy Carter, 98, has decided to spend his “remaining time at home” in hospice care, according to a statement released Saturday afternoon by the Carter Center. Carter was the 39th president, serving from 1977 to 1981. He is the longest living ex-president. Carter, a Democrat, was also governor of Georgia from 1971 to 1975.

Statement on President Carter’s Health
Feb. 18, 2023
ATLANTA (Feb. 18, 2023) — 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 Carter family asks for privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by his many admirers.

Carter has been active well into his nineties, continuing his decades long work with Habitat for Humanity and teaching Bible study.

Carter, a Class of 1947 Naval Academy graduate, recently had a building on campus named after him.

Carter’s class graduated a year early to support the Fleet after World War II.
