Jimmy Carter's grandson provided an update on the former president's life on Tuesday during a forum held at the Carter Center.

Jason Carter spoke about his nearly 100-year-old grandfather on Tuesday during a mental health forum held at the Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

“My grandfather is doing okay,” Jason, 48, said during the Carter Center forum this week. “He has been in hospice, as you know, for almost a year and a half now, and he really is, I think, coming to the end.”

"I’ve said before, there’s a part of this faith journey that is so important to him,” Jason continued, “and there’s a part of that faith journey that you only can live at the very end, and I think he has been there in that space."

Carter’s grandson also shared a conversation he had with the former president earlier this year while the pair sat and watched baseball together.

“He has been in hospice, as you know, for almost a year and a half now, and he really is, I think, coming to the end.”

"I said: Papa, you know, people ask me how you’re doing, and I say I don’t know,” Jason recounted. “And he said: Well, I don’t know myself.”

"So, he is still there,” Carter’s grandson added.

Jason Carter also thanked those who reached out to the Carter family after his grandmother’s passing last year and as President Carter grows closer toward the end of his life.

"The outpouring of love and support that we, as a family, received from people in this room and from the rest of the world was so remarkable and meaningful to us,” Carter’s grandson said. “And it really turned that whole process into a celebration.”
