There’s no stronger love than a mother’s for her child! From the moment of conception to the day you’ll hold your baby in your arms, the bond created is much deeper than we all think. The story we’ll tell you today just goes to show that a mother is capable of going great lengths to protect her child.
It’s about Ada Keating, a 98-year-old mother who went to look after her son Tom, 80, in a care home in Liverpool.
Ada shared four children with her late husband, Harry. The youngest from her four children, unfortunately, passed away at the age of 13, and because of that, Tom decided to never marry, and instead, stayed with his mother in Wavertree, Liverpool.
Tom worked for a building company as a painter and decorator. When he retired, his health was getting worse, and as a result, he was sent to a care home. His mother, who is 18 years older than him, didn’t think twice and moved in with Tom in the care home, and has been looking after him ever since.
Ada described her everyday life with Tom at the care home, saying:
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. 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 home, Philip Daniels, also opened up about Ada and Tom’s “close relationship,” explaining how rare it is to see both mother and children together in the same care home, and that’s why they want to make their stay there “as special as possible,” Daniels added.
Ada and Tom are regularly visited by their family, as her granddaughter revealed, and they make sure both of them all being taken care of.
We wish Ada and Tom a healthy life ahead.
