True Doors ® decals are person centred care solutions to improve quality of life for elders with dementia, while also transforming cold institutional spaces into warm and familiar homelike environments.
Residents' identities are brought to the fore. Reminiscence and social interaction is stimulated. People recognise and find their own doors. Privacy and sense of safety increases. Facilities feel more like homes.
Save your favourites to create our own catalogue from the largest collection of door decals in the world. Quality photos of actual doors, made-to-measure and applied on flat door surfaces.
From nursing staff, family members and people with dementia.
My True Door makes me happy. It really fits my personality.- Annie van Houten | Resident at Amerpoort in Vinkeveen
We are very proud to be involved with such an amazing creation, that brings a lot of stories, that have been told to us, by our friends who live here, to life. Some love to talk about where they once lived. One lady told me, she now feels as though she brought part of her old home with her, to her new home. She explained it to be of great comfort to her and it made her feel peaceful.
A lot of our friends here love the fact that they can easily find their own rooms. Not having every door the exact same is a blessing to them. No more getting lost as they now recognize their own door.
This project has sparked a lot of chatter. Most people coming into our place want to know what made each person here decide on such a door, so it’s a real joy to see our community interacting with all our friends that make Nashwaak Villa their home.
Families are totally immersed in this project and are so proud to have their loved one, make the decision as to what door they wanted. So often so much is taken away, and we just really wanted to give something back.
Some of our friends here say they feel more secure as if the were home.- Pamela Spilman | Nursing Staff at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
This was her front door for the last 20 years. She likes to look at all the different doors when we pass by. It's done so nicely.- D. Nannings | A family member of a resident at De Waalboog Verpleeghuis Joachim en Anna in Nijmegen
The door looks nice in the hallway and I feel more at home now.- Erwin Kemper | Resident at HVO Querido in Amsterdam
I can tell people are proud of their doors. They often chose a door that fit their personality. Also, the ward looks so much nicer now!- Jorien Koch | Nurse at HVO Querido in Amsterdam
Makes our hallways warm and welcoming. Good conversation piece. Many people come in to see the doors. They give more social interaction for our residents. Definitely, improve quality of life.- Melody O’Neill | Director of Care at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
