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 homely 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.
I notice that there's now a more homely feeling and more social interaction at Nashwaak Villa.- Richard Lyons | Husband of a resident at Nashwaak Villa in New Brunswick, Canada
Each time I pass by the door with cafe blinds I "smell the scones" this leads to greater bonding with the resident who has the room and the less sterile feeling with a door also encourages a sense of individuality and self for the residents with pride shown for their "home".- Natasha Yarrick | Member of staff at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
I think it's a beautiful door, much nicer than it was before. I'm very happy with it. And it's my kind of door, I love blue.- Bep van Grootel | Resident at Amerpoort in Vinkeveen
I think they are very homely. I am finding that I have taken an interest in front doors when out walking I can't help compare.- Helen Hayes | Daughter of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
One of the residents, who sits in a wheelchair, sometimes asks me to walk with her through the ward so she can have a look at all the different doors.- Aleida Ligthart | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in Breda
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
