Former first lady Rosalynn Carter has entered hospice care at home in Georgia, per a statement via The Carter Center Friday.
What they're saying: "She and President Carter are spending time with each other and their family," Jason Carter, grandson of the couple, said Friday in a statement on X via the Carter Center.
- "The Carter family continues to ask for privacy and remains grateful for the outpouring of love and support," Jason Carter said.
Zoom out: Jimmy Carter, the oldest living U.S. president, and Rosalynn made a rare public appearance in September at the Plains Peanut Festival in their Georgia hometown.
The couple has been in a "different era" as varying health conditions have required some changes in their lives, Josh Carter, their grandson, told People in August.
- Josh said that Rosalynn " ... still knows who we are, for the most part — that we are family," per the interview.
