Former US President Jimmy Carter was moved to a hospice care home with his family.

Carter served as the US President from 1977 to 1981 and is the longest-lived former president.

Carter has had several health challenges recently, including cancer, a broken hip, and hospitalizations.

The Carter Center announced Carter's decision to receive hospice care instead of additional medical intervention.

Carter has dedicated several decades to public service, including work with the nonprofit Carter Center and Habitat for Humanity.

Carter has occasionally spoken out on political affairs, including calling for Georgia's Governor Brian Kemp to resign in 2018 and supporting Joe Biden in the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Carter grew up in rural Georgia and served as the governor of his state.

Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, are the longest-married couple in presidential history.

The Carter family has asked for privacy during this time.

The Carter Center concluded its statement by expressing gratitude for the concern shown by Carter's many admirers.
