A mother's love knows no bounds and this story is no exception.

98-year-old mum Ada Keating, has just moved back into a care home with her son, Tom, aged 80, so that he could look after him.

"It's a full-time job, you never stop being a mother," Ada said of the move.

Tom always lived with his mum, having never had a family of his own, and needed to move into the Moss View Care home in Liverpool in 2016.

According to staff at the home, the mother and son love watching Emmerdale together or playing board games.

"I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I'll go and say good morning to him," she told Liverpool Echo. "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," she said. You never stop being a mum."


“They’re very good here and I’m happy to see my mum more now she lives here," Tom told the Liverpool Echo. “She’s very good at looking after me. Sometimes she’ll say ‘Behave yourself!’”

Care home manager Philip Daniels said: “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. They are inseparable."
