Mom, 98, Moves Into Nursing Home To Look After 80-Year-Old Son Because “You Never Stop Being A Mum”

No one understands this more than Ada Keating of Liverpool, England. Even at 96-years-old, she still hasn’t stopped being a mum to her children. Her 80-year-old son, Tom, recently moved into an assisted living facility and shortly after, Ada, who was once a nurse, moved in as well—to care for her son. The two are very happy with the arrangement and love being able to spend as much time together as possible.

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

The manager of the care facility commented on the unique situation: “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.”
