After his wife’s death from Alzheimer’s disease, Joe McGuinness moved in with his daughter Caroline and her teenage daughter. It is not an easy adjustment for anyone. Joe is demanding and difficult, and he stubbornly believes he is still capable of running his own life — despite mounting evidence to the contrary. Caroline and her sister Fran put everything on hold, rearranging their daily schedules, careers and personal lives in order to assist their aging father. Two out-of-town siblings do little to help — but, when they do, offer impractical and uninformed solutions that only add to the upheaval and chaos. Although the family is at odds over how best care for their father in his final years, they are united in their desire to ensure his well-being and peace of mind — without them losing their own. Welcome to the Sandwich Generation.
