98-year-old mom moves to nursing home to take care of 80-year-old son


A mother’s love is forever unconditional and there is nothing stronger than a bond between a mother and her child. This amazing 98-year-old mom, Ada Keating decides to look after her ailing 80-year-old son, Tom and stay with him at a care home in Liverpool.

Tom worked as a painter and decorator at HE Building Services before he retired. He lived with his mother before he went to be a resident at Moss View care home as he required more support due to his old age.
