Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is set to enter hospice care, according to a statement released by The Carter Center on Tuesday. The 95-year-old former President has been battling a series of health issues in recent months, including a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain.
“President Jimmy Carter is entering hospice care, which is provided by a team of caregivers who specialize in providing comfort and support,” said the statement. “This comes after recent struggles with his health, including a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain.”
Carter, who served as the 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981, has been a champion of human rights and social justice for decades. He has also been active in public service since leaving the White House, founding The Carter Center in 1982 and continuing to travel the world to promote peace, democracy, and public health.
The statement went on to thank those who have sent their well-wishes to the former President and his family. Carter has previously expressed his gratitude for the support he has received throughout his life.
“We are grateful for all the prayers, letters, and messages of support that President Carter and his family have been receiving,” the statement concluded.
Carter’s health has been deteriorating in recent months, and it is unclear how long he will remain in hospice care. However, he is surrounded by family and friends and is receiving the best care possible.
