Everyone knows that moms can sometimes be irritating, but there is no one else we could wish for when something isn’t all right to tell us that everything will be just fine.
There’s a saying that being a mom is a full-time job and this is precisely what 98-old Ada Keating told her 80-year old son Tom after she had moved into a care home to look after him.
Tom spent his whole life with his mother, as he never got married, but last year he had to move into the Moss View care home in Liverpool in need of support and care. A year later, Ada joined him.
The two of them love playing the odd board game together or watching Emmerdale or just sitting and relaxing. According to Ada, she says goodnight and good morning every day to him, but also comes down to have breakfast. Moreover, if she goes to the hairdresser’s, he’ll look for her to see when she’s coming back and when she does come back, he will outstretch his arms waiting for her.
Tom is the eldest son of Ada and her late husband, Harry. He had 3 sisters, but they sadly died at the age of 13.
It probably comes as no surprise to you that Tom loves his mom being around, even more so in a home where he has a brilliant care, as well. He said that they treated him rather well and that he was happy to see his mom more since she lives there. He praised her for taking good care of him and said that she would sometimes say ‘Behave yourself.’
Manager of the care home, Philip Daniels told the reporter that it was very touching to see their close relationship and that it was very rare to have a parent and a child together in the same care home, so they would try to make their stay there and time spent together as pleasant as possible.
