Mum of 98 moves into a care home to look after Son of 80



A 98-year-old mother has moved into a care home to look after her 80-year-old son. Ada Keating and her son Tom have always lived together as Mr Keating never married. He moved into the Moss View Care Home in Liverpool in 2016 because he needed more care and support and one year later his mother followed to help look after her eldest son, the Liverpool Echo reported.“I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him,” Ms Keating, a former auxiliary nurse, said. “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.”Mr Keating, who was a painter and decorator, said he was happy to have his mother at the care home. “They’re very good here and I’m happy to see my mum more now she lives here.”Care home manager Philip Daniels said the pair were inseparable.

“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,” he told the Echo

The lion's share are amazing. Too bad we hear so much about the few bad ones.

Sounds like your mum has passed.
My mother passed a little over seven year ago.
I couldn't attend the funeral because the plane that we booked was stuck
in Portland, Oregon because of mechanical failures. The funeral was at noon
the next day and it was night time. There was no way to get from San Jose
to Kansas City in that short amount of time. No flights would get me there
on time.
If souls rise she could see my grief just the same.
