Former President Jimmy Carter launched hospice care in February.
Former first lady Rosalynn Carter entered home hospice care, nine months after her husband, former President Jimmy Carter, began hospice care.
Rosalynn Carter, 96, and “President Carter spend time together and with their family,” their grandson said in a statement Friday.
In May, the Carter Center said the former first lady had been diagnosed with dementia.
“She continues to live happily at home with her husband, enjoying the spring in Plains, Georgia, and visiting loved ones,” the Carter Center said in a statement at the time.
Jimmy Carter, 99, is the oldest American president and the longest-serving president in United States history. The Democrat served as president from 1977 to 1981, but was defeated in his re-election bid by Ronald Reagan.
The Carters, who married in 1946, are also the longest-serving presidential couple in American history. The president told ABC News two years ago that marrying Rosalynn Carter was “the most important thing in my life.”
The couple made a rare public appearance last September, attending the Plains Peanut Festival in their Georgia hometown.
The Carters have four children: three sons and a daughter. They are also the grandparents of 12 children (one deceased) and the great-grandparents of 14 children, according to the Jimmy Carter Library.
