Ada Keating was around 18 years old when she became a mother to son, Tom. Since then, she took on the never-ending job of being a mother. She found herself with Tom in a home care in Liverpool, UK. Tom didn’t marry so he didn’t have anyone else but his mother.

Tom shared with Liverpool Echo that he enjoys being with her mom, “She’s very good at looking after me. Sometimes she’ll say ‘Behave yourself!’”

Ada excitedly shared that despite old age, “You never stop being a mum!”

She adds that she enjoys taking care of her son, “When I get back he’ll come to me with his arms outstretched and give me a big hug.”

Ada also shared that she and Tom are inseparable, “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.”

Care home manager Philip Daniels admitted that it quite rare to see mother and son together in a care home. But he assures that they are doing their very best to keep the two’s stay comfortable.

“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,” he said.
