Richard’s daughter Kerry shows him how to use his new GrandPad

Richard stops eating and struggles to get out of bed. He’s not answering his phone or getting on Zoom with his children. Because family is not allowed in Richard’s senior living residence during the coronavirus pandemic, this breakdown in communication is a crisis. The family hires caregivers and daughter Kerry investigates video technology solutions. She discovers the GrandPad, a new device for seniors. It’s all just in time before a new wave of social distancing restrictions are imposed at Thanksgiving.
