We didn't invent doors. We just decided that they matter.
True Doors ® decals help improve the lives of people with dementia.
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.
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
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
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
The wing looks beautiful with this new look. I like my wife's chosen True Door. Thank you to Acacia Living Group for this effort.- Eric Caitlin | Husband of resident at Acacia Living Group in Western Australia
They are colourful and alive , creative and engaging. The True Door helps mum identify her room. It feels more homely and adds a lot more interest- takes away the "sanitation" of aged care. Everyone I show who sees the doors thinks they are marvelous.- Rose Spinks | Daughter of resident at Mercy Health in Victoria, Australia
The well-being True Door helps him with his orientation while looking for his room. He 'scans' the hallway for the front door that has been his property for 37 years. I also noticed that he wants more privacy now, he wants to lock his door. I think the True Door gives him the peace he used to feel when he was home.- P.N. Berg - Rodewijk | A family member of a resident at Topaz Overryhn in Leiden
