Former President Jimmy Carter to receive hospice care.

Former President Jimmy Carter is now receiving hospice treatment. The Carter Center released a statement on Saturday “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. The Carter family asks for privacy during this time and is grateful for the concern shown by his many admirers.”

Carter was the 39th President of the United States, and at 98 is currently the oldest living President of The United States. His tenure as President lasted from 1977-1981, being succeeded by President Ronald Regan. On the second day of his presidency, he pardoned all draftees who evaded Vietnam. Over his four-year term, he founded The Department of Education and The Department of Energy. Carter was also credited with creating The United States energy policy hoping to combat anti-conversation efforts and the regulation of new technologies.

At the tail end of his presidency. Carter faced several controversies, with rising inflation rates, unemployment, and heightened tensions with the USSR. In November 1979, militarized Iranians stormed and overtook the US embassy in Iran, taking 52 United States diplomats and citizens hostage. Carter described the situation as blackmail, and 3 hostages were victims of terror and anarchy. The failure of his diplomatic response is what political scientists believe caused his landslide loss in the 1980 presidential election.


After losing the election in 1980, Carter continued with his humanitarian aid, founding The Carter Center, teaching at Emory University in Georgia, and writing 30 books. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his efforts. Carter also founded Habitat For Humanity, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing homes & shelters for impoverished neighbors in 2019.


Carter suffered from many falls over the years, undergoing hip-replacement surgery back in 2019. Carter also remarkably survived melanoma in 2015. The cancer spread to his liver and was rapidly taking over his brain. Going under surgery, radiation therapy, and taking a new treatment called Pembrolizumab, Carter announced in March 2016 that doctors hadn’t spotted cancer in his liver or brain for over 3 months.
