Tom Keating had moved into the nursing home in Liverpool in the UK last year after he needed more support, but a year later, his mother Ada decided she too would make the move to care for the eldest of her four children.
Moss View Care Home manager Philip Daniels told the Liverpool Echo it was rare to see mothers and their children in the same home together.
“It’s very touching to see the close relationship both Tom and Ada share,” he said. “They are inseparable.”
Not that she doesn’t put her foot down sometimes.
“Sometimes she’ll say ‘behave yourself,” Tom said. “She’s very good at looking after me.”
Tom never married and lived with Ada before he went into the home so their family is happy the pair have been reunited.
“There’s no parting them!” granddaughter Debi Higham added. “It’s reassuring for us that they’re both getting looked after 24/7.”
A real feel-good story.
