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.

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 Breda
I can tell some residents recognize their own front door. They often say: "This is my front door." Sometimes they visit each other and some of them now lock their door.- Mandy van Broekhoven | Nurse at Laverhof Het Retraitehuis in Uden
We are very proud to be involved with such an amazing creation, that brings a lot of stories, that have been told to us, by our friends who live here, to life. Some love to talk about where they once lived. One lady told me, she now feels as though she brought part of her old home with her, to her new home. She explained it to be of great comfort to her and it made her feel peaceful.
A lot of our friends here love the fact that they can easily find their own rooms. Not having every door the exact same is a blessing to them. No more getting lost as they now recognize their own door.
This project has sparked a lot of chatter. Most people coming into our place want to know what made each person here decide on such a door, so it’s a real joy to see our community interacting with all our friends that make Nashwaak Villa their home.
Families are totally immersed in this project and are so proud to have their loved one, make the decision as to what door they wanted. So often so much is taken away, and we just really wanted to give something back.
Some of our friends here say they feel more secure as if the were home.- Pamela Spilman | Nursing Staff at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
This is the kitchen door of where she lived for 40 years. Now it's easier for her to find her room.- W. Steiginga | A family member of a resident at Woonzorggroep Samen Noorderlicht in Hippolytushoef
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
More homely, make a big difference. Good for talking about.- Chris Varley | Son of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
