There is nothing more grounded than the love between a mother and her son, and this story is the ideal example of how solid this bond really is. Ada Keating, 98, has joined her eldest child Tom, 80, in Moss View care home in Liverpool to take care of him, and they cannot be more happy than that.

Ada and her late spouse Harry had four kids – Tom, Barbara, Margi and Janet, who passed away at just 13. Prior to his retirement, Tom worked as a painter and decorator at HE Simm building administrations, at that point situated on Prescot Road. Tom turned into an occupant at Moss View in 2016 because he couldn’t take care of him by himself.

Ada and her child anre happier than ever now that they can spend all day together – playing games and viewing Emmerdale. “I say goodnight to Tom in his room each night and I’ll go and say good morning to him,” Ada, a previous nurse, said. “When I go out to the beauty salon he’ll look for me to see when I’m returning. When I get back he’ll come to me with his arms open and give me a warm embrace.”

Tom is happy with how things are going too. “They’re great here and I’m happy to see my mum all the more now she lives here. She’s great at taking care of me. Some of the time she’ll say ‘Behave yourself!'”

“It’s sweet to see the beautiful relationship both Tom and Ada share and we are so satisfied we were able to accommodate both of their needs,” administrator of the care home, Philip Daniels, said. “It’s pretty uncommon to see moms and their kids together in a similar care home and we positively need to make their time together as amazing as possible.”

As Ada stated, “You never stop being a mum.”
