We the residents of Nashwaak Villa are truly delighted with the new doors. Many friends and relatives have come to see the doors. They are beautiful. Beautiful! It feels like part of Holland has come to us.- Greta Spliman | Resident at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
Maggie has just moved into Bethlehem and the door was already up. Ironically - previously Maggie's door was purple and the colour is very similar. It's too early to tell whether mum will recognize this door but aesthetically mum feels it is comforting and homely. I think that visually it provides a wonderful sensory environment a feeling of home and a warm personal touch. The doors invite conversation and a person-centred approach with the doors unique to the individual. I would love to go through the process to see mum's reactions to other doors and would be interested to see if she would continue to choose a certain door or whether this would change on a day to day basis. I love the concept of bringing a more homely environment into Residential Care that integrates the lives of each individual and the era to which their memory resonates.- Samantha Parke | Daughter of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
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
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.
When doors become events in themselves, they reveal a story of their own. Here we share True Door stories, from our community, of personalisation, happy memories and that all important feeling of home.
