Former first lady Rosalynn Carter is joining her husband, former President Jimmy Carter, in-home hospice care at the couple’s longtime residence in Plains, Ga.
In a brief announcement Friday, the couple’s grandson Jason Carter said the pair “are spending time with each other and their family.
“The Carter family continues to ask for privacy and remains grateful for the outpouring of love and support,” added the statement, which was released by the Carter Center.
The announcement came almost exactly nine months to the day Jimmy Carter, 99, entered hospice care following a series of hospital stays
Jimmy Carter and the former Rosalynn Smith, 96, have been married since 1946 and have lived in the same home since 1961.
