When doors become events in themselves, they reveal a story of their own. Here we share True Door stories, from our community, of personalisation, happy memories and that all important feeling of home.


From nursing staff, family members and people with dementia.

About True Doors

True Doors are a simple idea with a big effect that improve the quality of life for people with dementia.

True Doors are made to measure decals with photos of actual doors. Residents at nursing homes select their own decals. As a result: 

  • Residents recognise and find their own doors
  • Reminiscence and social interaction is stimulated
  • Facilities feel more like homes
  • Residents’ identities and life stories are brought to the fore

Residents and family typically select True Doors from our online collection of 500 decals, the largest in the world .
