Former US First Lady Rosalynn Carter diagnosed with dementia


The family of former United States President Jimmy Carter has announced that his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, has dementia.

Meanwhile, the former first lady continues to live at home with her husband, former President Jimmy Carter, in Plains, Georgia.

In a press statement released on Tuesday May 30, the Carter family stated that Rosalynn, 95, will continue to live with her husband at their residence in Plains, Georgia.

‘She continues to live happily at home with her husband, enjoying spring in Plains and visits with loved ones,’ the family said in a statement on Tuesday, May 30, released by the Carter Center, referring to their Georgia home.

Rosalynn Carter, 95, spent decades advocating to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues, the family said in the statement, adding that it hoped sharing the news of her diagnosis would ‘increase important conversations at kitchen tables and in doctor’s offices around the country.’

The Carters led the US from 1977 to 1981. They have been married since 1946 and have four children.

In February, 98-year-old Jimmy Carter, the oldest living former president, also announced that he would begin hospice care due to deteriorating health.

He has lived longer after leaving the White House than any other president in U.S. history.
