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.
I've got the feeling that some of our residents feel more at home, especially when they recognise their own front door. Also, family members like making photographs of their relative standing in front of their door.- Melanie Holzken | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in Breda
Blue is my favorite colour, that's why I chose this door. It looks very homey.- Bewoner C13 | Resident at HVO Querido in Amsterdam
My mother has lived behind this door for the most part of her life. I can tell it is easier for her to find her own door now. Sometimes she says the mailbox should be fixed. I believe she recognises her front door, because she says: "I'm going home", whenever she returns to her apartment.- J. van Bastelaar | A family member of a resident at Archipel Zorggroep Passaat in Eindhoven
This is the door from my mum's childhood home, where she had a wonderful time. Since she received her personal True Door, we talk about the past more often, about where she lived. Other residents used to accidentally walk into my mum's room. That doesn't happen anymore, now that she has a True Door. This gives her peace and privacy. Every resident has his/her own personalised door, so they're finding their owns room more easily. When the family visits her, it feels more like we are entering her home, rather than being in a nursing home.- E. van Velzen | A family member of a resident at Topaz Overryhn in Leiden
The residents recognize their front doors because of the True Doors. I think the doors contribute to a home-like atmosphere.- | Nurse at De Waalboog Verpleeghuis Joachim en Anna in Nijmegen
Can’t believe how efficient our doors were being sent. I received an email late one week & they arrived within the next week. 2 days before the nominated date. The joke here was, I could get things from Amsterdam quicker than I can from Adelaide. As it has been a busy time, our first door only went up yesterday. Yah for us. Everyone has made positive comments and the room occupant loves it. The decals are truly a wonderful product and the quality is outstanding.- Sharon Rothe | Leisure Lifestyle Coordinator at ‘Charla Lodge Aged Care’ Bordertown Hospital, SA Health, Government of South Australia in South Australia
