Welcome to the Waiting for God guide at TV.com.
Eccentric Tom Ballard moves to Bayview Retirement Vilage. He moves next door to a former reporter, Diane Trent, a feisty old woman who complains about everything. Harvey Baines, the head of Bayview, constantly finds himself in conflict with the two old folks. They want decent living standards, while Baines prefers everything that will save money. Tom and Diane form a friendship (which includes helping each other out of tight situations), and eventually a romance. Geofrey Ballard, Tom's son, pays a lot of visits to the Retirement village, sometimes with his wife Marion (whom Tom doesn't particularly like). Jane works in the home and is very cheerful, most of the time, and quite fancies Harvey (Diane doesn't particularly like Jane's constant cheerfulness).
