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

This week marks one year since former president Jimmy Carter entered hospice care, but the iconic statesman’s grandson insists his spirit remains as strong as ever.

Much has changed since Carter entered hospice care last February, a decision taken after a series of hospital stays to combat a host of growing issues. Jimmy’s wife Rosalynn passed away in November, and the ex-president himself has been greatly troubled by health problems in recent years, including brain cancer, liver cancer, a broken hip, and brain surgery.
Yet one year after entering hospice care, his grandson has given an update on Carter’s condition.
“After a year in hospice, on a daily basis, we have no expectations for his body. But we know that his spirit is as strong as ever,” Jason Carter told CBS Sunday Morning.
The Carter family as a collective also expressed their gratitude for all of the support Jimmy has received during the past year.
“One year after entering hospice care, President Carter continues to be at home with his family,” they said. “The Carter Family is grateful for the many expressions of love they have received and the continued respect for their privacy during this time.”
