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 homely 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.
Green is a colour that has always been important to me, it's so peaceful. The copper door knocker and letter box remind me of my sons who always make things for me.- Edna Rutter | Resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
I lived behind that door for 30 years. From when I was one. I was a really naughty there! At age 84, I returned the front door key, because another family member has lived in that house as well. So for 83 years, I owned that key. The front door name plate was made by my father. We had a copper door bell that we often polished.. and the tiny window above the door, we had to clean that too. Boy, did I have to clean that one!- Mw. van der Kooy | Resident at Pieter van Foreest Weidevogelhof in Pijnacker
Residents find it easier to walk to their rooms now. There are less questions about "where to go?". They also talk more about their past, for example when they're engaged in a game.- José Gommers | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in Breda
A resident told me a story about how her door reminded her of the times her husband went fishing in the past on the Nashwaak River. She used to look out of the car window while her husband was fishing and this is the image she imagines when she looks at the door. I have noticed a huge positive effect with the True Doors.- Amy Sandant Vibert | Nursing Staff at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
Everybody who walks past tells me it's beautiful-I would say it is colossal- Nancy Young | Resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
Fantastic!- Clarissa Garland | Member of staff at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
