From nursing staff, family members and people with dementia.
I believe it gives both residents and their families a more warm and welcoming environment to come into and the True Doors give the residents comfort in knowing they are at home and the door is unique to them, rather than the generic facility door. Overall I think it is a wonderful addition.

She chose her former front door. She lived behind that door more than 30 years!
Marjan Hermens | A family member of a resident at Archipel Zorggroep Passaat in
Some residents find it easier to orient and they recognize their own door.
Marcolien Keyzer | Nurse at Woonzorggroep Samen Noorderlicht in
A more homely feeling with True Doors.
Alan McDonald | Husband of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in
The True Doors helps residents with their orientation. They reminisce often and talk about the doors from their past. The True Doors stand out and sometimes lead to conversations between residents, family members and the nursing staff.

For my father, having his own space is very important. Other residents are not allowed in his room. He is very happy with his own well-being True Door. I think that’s because it feels more like a real home.
Joke Velthuijzen | A family member of a resident at Topaz Overryhn in
I do believe the residents feel more at home. They feel like they have their own door now. The first couple of days, they often told us how lovely they think it is.
Ilona vd Meeren | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in
I am very impressed, it’s wonderful to come along and see the effect on everybody. I feel more peaceful seeing the doors instead of institutional regular doors.

The doors look fabulous and make it look more homely. Love them and this was a great idea.
