From nursing staff, family members and people with dementia.
Two residents on the community ward were talking about how their own doors look. Also I’ve seenother other residents sometimes stand next to a door and start talking about it.

The dark blue True Door creates a beautiful passageway to my mother’s room. It looks great I think!
Corne Balemans | A family member of a resident at Stichting Elisabeth in
A resident was so happy with his True Door that he kept on saying “This is my door!”. Another resident has a name tag on his door. He loves it and keeps on pointing to the tag.

My mother asked: “Do I have to bring my door, when I go home?” She thinks it is beautiful and she recognizes her former addresses (the doors looked quite similar). Family members of other residents are also very positive about the True Doors.

Since installation of the True Doors, I knock on the door before I enter a resident’s room. I also feel like ringing the door bell first.
C. Dominicus | Nurse at De Waalboog Verpleeghuis Joachim en Anna in
This door from is past is the most striking one he ever owned. It is very authentic! His brother used to live there too, and he has many memories of that time when he sees the True Door. It’s easier for him to recognize his door and I can tell he is more at ease now. He really appreciates the fact that this nursing home has taken part in this project.

She chose a door from her past and she thinks it’s beautiful.

Since the True Doors were installed some residents are spending more time in their rooms. They also close their door more often.
Miranda Nous | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in
I chose this door because I liked it. Now I feel more at home.
