Motherhood Is Forever: 98-Year-Old Mom Moves Into A Care Home To Be With Her 80-Year-Old Son
Becoming a mother changes a woman’s life forever. Your newborn child becomes the light of your life and your primary focus, and that loving care never really fades away.
One mother from Liverpool, England has recently moved into a care home to be with her son. Their story is so heartwarming that it is making headlines around the globe!
Age Is Just A Number For This Mother And Son
Ada Keating — a 98-year-old mom from England — has recently moved into Moss View care home with her 80-year-old son Tom.
Tom Keating has been a resident in the home since 2016 when he started to require more living assistance. His mother Ada has now taken up residency at Moss View to look after her son.
Tom is Ada’s eldest son, and the two share a very special bond.
Tom was never married, and he always lived with his mother. The two can’t bear to be apart, and Ada moving into the care home to be with her son was a no-brainer.
This Pair Is Simply Adorable
Ada wouldn’t want her relationship with Tom to be any other way.
“I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him. I’ll tell him I’m coming down for breakfast,” the 98-year-old stated.
Ada Keating explains that her son even waits for her to return when she goes to get her hair done.
“You never stop being a mum,” Ada exclaimed. A mother’s work is clearly never done, and this mother and son are inspiring people around the world.
Their Tight Bond Has Touched The Hearts Of Many
“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,” Philip Daniels — manager of the care center — stated.
Tom admits that he is overjoyed to have his mother now living in the care home. “She’s very good at looking after me. Sometimes she’ll say ‘Behave yourself!’,” Tom joked.
“They are inseparable,” Daniels admitted.
There’s nothing comparable to a bond between mother and child. Here’s to many more years of happiness and memories for Tom and Ada!
