Dottie’s sister Lynne arrives from Calgary to celebrate Dottie’s birthday. After a long wait an irate airport attendant wheels her out, angrily saying she shouldn’t be traveling alone in her condition (she’s further along in her dementia journey than Dottie). The family lose Dottie and Auntie Lynne on the way to the exit. Luckily, the airport attendant found them trying to depart in a taxi and used ‘therapeutic fibbing’ techniques to persuade them to reunite with the family.

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.
