In this episode, at a family gathering Dottie decides it’s time to go home. The others try to convince her she already is home to little effect, until Julie persuades them to ‘therapeutic fib’ and take a short car journey, before returning with a greatly reassured Dottie.

Therapeutic Fibbing is technique often recommended by dementia experts. It is the practice of agreeing or saying things that are not true to avoid causing someone distress and to make them feel safe and comforted.
