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.

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.
