You’re never too old to need your mama and nobody understands this better than your mom herself.

And so, it made for a cute reunion when a 98-year-old mother moved into a care home to look after her 80-year-old son.

80-year-old Tom Keating, a retired painter and decorator, moved into Moss Video care home in Huyton, Liverpool, due to his frail health.

Just a year later, his mom, Ada, decided to join him in the same care home to look after his son. Now, the duo, in the twilight of their life, spends most of their time together.

Their family members regularly visit the care home and are happy to see that the mother-son duo has been receiving good care. 

Tom told the Daily Mail:

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

Ada and late husband Harry had four children and Tom is their eldest one. Tom never married and has always lived with his mother.

Philip Daniels, the care home manager, said:

It’s very rare to see mothers and their children together in the same care home and we certainly want to make their time together as special as possible. They are inseparable.

No doubt mothers are the purest form of love!
