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 doors are creating opportunities to talk with other families about their doors and the stories behind the doors. the doors are all so beautiful - it's magic- you've done a wonderful job!- Margaret Wilson | Wife of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
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
The True Doors make the hallways lively and colourful. It looks great! It's not just the residents like it, the staff do too. I often walk around to have a closer look at all the different doors.- Johan van Dijk | A family member of a resident at Zorggroep Charim D'n Aok in Veendendaal
I think it's a nice brown coloured door, that's why I chose it. I like that all the doors are different. Now I know where to go when I want to go back to my room.- Louise | Resident at HVO Querido in Amsterdam
Residents walk around to look at each other's door and to give their opinion. For them it's important to show they are still able to critize.- Simone Bos | Nurse at Stichting Elisabeth in Breda
I feel the doors take the clinical look and feel away from the facility, it certainly creates a more homely aspect. I thoroughly enjoy walking past them.- Susan Fitzpatrick | Daughter of resident at Mercy Health Mercy Health Bethlehem Home for the Aged in Victoria, Australia
