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.
The ward looks less clinical now, more home-like. I can tell residents are happy with it as well.- | Nurse at HVO Querido in Amsterdam
By choosing their own True Door, we learnt more about the resident’s past and ‘who they are’. There’s a home-like atmosphere now and a more individualistic character.- Christel de Groote | Occupational Therapist at OCMW Gent, WZC Het Heiveld in Gent, Belgium
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
For some of our residents, it's easier to find their rooms now that they have a True Door. Residents help each other out, when someone has difficulties finding his/her own place. They feel safer, now that their room is more like an appartment, something they own.- Anne Oomes | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in Breda
The True Doors make Mercy Health more homely, they make a lot of difference - residents recognize doors and makes for good talking points.- Christine and Rod | Daughter and Husband of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
It's a fun and unique kind of door, I'm so happy with it! Yes, I'm very proud of my door.- Els Blom | Resident at Amerpoort in Vinkeveen
