Rosalynn Carter, the former first lady and wife of former President Jimmy Carter, is in hospice care at the family’s Georgia home.
Rosalynn is 96 years old and earlier this year she was diagnosed with dementia. It’s been a rough year for the Carters … back in January, the 99-year-old former Prez also started receiving hospice care.
In a statement Friday, the Carter Center says Rosalynn and Jimmy “are spending time with each other and their family. The Carter family continues to ask for privacy and remains grateful for the outpouring of love and support.”
The Carters live in Plains, Georgia … where they were both born and raised.
Rosalynn and Jimmy have been married for 77 years, they got hitched way back in 1946 … and she served as First Lady from 1977 to 1981 during Jimmy’s 4 years in the White House.
In September, their grandson Josh Carter told PEOPLE Rosalynn and Jimmy were “in the final chapter” of their lives.
