There’s no greater love than that which comes from a mother’s heart. They give us life, feed us, clothe us, and protect us emotionally and physically. Plus, they put up with so much! I mean, raising kids isn’t easy, especially when the kiddies don’t realize how many sacrifices parents have to make. It’s safe to say that moms around the world always want their kids to be happy and safe. They also want to look after them for as long as possible. But what this 98-year-old mom did for her elderly son will warm your soul.
Alive And Kicking
It’s rare that an 80-year-old man can say he has a 98-year-old mom who’s alive and kicking. But Tom Keating was one of those lucky few, and he wanted his mother by his side as much as possible. Sure, he had friends at the nursing home where he was living, but can you really have a better friend than your own mom?
Tom and his mom have always shared a very strong bond. But since he never married, his mom Ada was the only woman in his life. He never imagined that he’d be needing his mom in his later years, but he didn’t even have to ask. She wanted to be there for him.
Moving On Up
In 2016, Tom moved to the Moss View Care Home in Huyton, Liverpool in the UK. He simply had no choice. He needed more medical support than he could get at home so he moved to Moss View.
Best Mom Ever
98-year-old Ada wasn’t willing to leave her son alone for very long. After all, as long as she was alive and well, she wanted to keep an eye on her son. So, a year after Tom moved to Moss View, the devoted mom moved into the nursing home to look after her “little boy.”
