Despite being almost 100 years old, Ada decided to take care of Tom and keep him company. She and her son are inseparable, and they love to watch television together or play cards, chess, among others. “I say goodnight to Tom in his room every night and I’ll go and say good morning to him” said Ada, who used to be an assistant nurse.

Tom is happy with the company and also with the nursing home team. “They’re very good here and I’m happy to see my mum more now she lives here. She’s very good at looking after me. Sometimes she’ll say ‘Behave yourself!'”, says Tom.
“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” said the manager of the facility, Philip Daniels.
