Mum, aged 98, still looks after her 80-year-old son

A WOMAN aged 98 went viral after deciding to move into the same care-home in which her

80-year-old son was living, so that she could tend to him.

It is a heartfelt tale of the love of a mother being so strong, even at such a late age, and Ada Keeting is the precious mum who made it her task to look after her son’s well-being.

Tom Keating had made Liverpool’s Moss View care home his new base back in 2016, because he needed extra care and support. And that was when his mum decided to move into the same home, to be closer to him, and care for her eldest.

The two enjoy every moment they can with each other, and, in their free time, they watch ITV soap Emmerdale, or play games.

Ada and Tom, from Wavertree, Liverpool, have always had a special connection, since they have always lived together, and he son never married.

They have even crafted a routine of sorts. “I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night, and I’ll go and say good morning to him,” she said. “I’ll tell him I’m coming down for breakfast.”

And even after all these years, she revealed that they still love each other deeply.

“When I go out to the hairdressers, he’ll look for me to see when I’m coming back,” she said.

“And when I get back, he’ll come to me with his arms outstretched and give me a big hug. You never stop being a mum.” 

Tom added, “They’re very good here, and I’m happy to see my mum more, now that she lives here. Sometimes she’ll say ‘behave yourself.’ She’s very good at looking after me.”
