98-year-old Ada Keating has joined her 80-year-old son, Tom, in the Moss View nursing home in Liverpool to care for him, and they get along very well.
Ada and her son are inseparable and love spending time together – especially playing games and listening to Emmerdale. “I tell him good night every night in his room and I say hello to him every morning,” said Ada, a former nursing assistant. “When I go to the hairdresser, he looks forward to my return. When I come back, he walks over to me with his arms extended and gives me a huge hug. ”
Tom is very happy to live in this nursing home alongside his beloved mother. “They are very nice here and I’m happy to spend more time with my mother since she lives here. She is very good at taking care of me. Sometimes she tells me “be wise!”
As Ada said, “you never stop being a mom”.
