98-Year-Old Mom Moves Into Care Home To Look After 80-Year-Old Son





A mother’s love is unconditional and they are always there for their children no matter what. The story of a 98-year-old woman and her 80-year-old son is making the rounds on the internet. This proves that mothers do not stop caring for their children, even when they’re already old.

Ada Keating moved into the nursing home where her son, Tom, stays to take care of him. The mother and son were inseparable since they lived together most of Tom’s life since he never married.

Tom has been a resident at Moss View care home in Huyton, Liverpool since 2016.

Now, Ada decided that she can’t live without her son and she’s worried that Tom needs her more than ever. So she decided to move in the same nursing home to look after Tom.

The two always lived together, spending time watching "Emmerdale" and playing games.

Ada said:

“I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him.”

“When I go out to the hairdressers he’ll look for me to see when I’m coming back. When I get back he’ll come to me with his arms outstretched and give me a big hug.”

Tom, who was a painter and a decorator, said he loves the idea that his mother is living with him again. He added that she’s good at looking after him.

Ada, on the other hand, worked as an auxiliary nurse at the former Mill Road Hospital. She has four children with his late husband Harry Keating – Tom, Margi, Barbara and Janet, who died when she was just 13 years old.

The other members of the family regularly visit Tom in the care home and they are happy that finally, the two are now together again.

Philip Daniels, the manager of the care home said:

“It’s very touching to see the close relationship both Tom and Ada share and we are so pleased we were able to accommodate both of their needs.”

“It’s very rare to see mothers and their children together in the same care home and we certainly want to make their time together as special as possible. They are inseparable.”
