True Doors ®, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, offers decals of front doors that help elders connect with their spaces. True Doors decals stimulate social interaction, improve way-finding, engender a greater feeling of privacy and help people to reminisce.
These outcomes come about when elders are given a voice in selecting their True Doors through a well applied process.
Person Centred Universe, Fredericton, NB, Canada, supports its clients in developing capability, tools and services to help provide quality care for those living with dementia.
Talking of the partnership Daphne Noonan, co-founder of Person Centred Universe said,
“For almost a year, I’ve experienced firsthand the power of True Doors in empowering elders, and engaging the wider community. I’m delighted to now form this partnership to grow the adoption of True Doors throughout Canada’s Atlantic region, the Pioneer Network and Planetree organisations.“
Rahzeb Choudhury, co-founder and executive director of True Doors added,
“I could not have envisioned a better partner organisation. We began as a life story project and have evolved into a social enterprise with transformative projects completed in fifteen countries and counting. In Person Centred Universe we have a partner whose mission is to respect and empower the entire life story of individuals. It feels like we’ve come full circle.”
Ashley King co-founder of Person Centred Universe explained,
“Grounded in tried and tested knowledge on how personalising interiors improves quality of life, True Doors fit perfectly with our training, education and bespoke consulting programmes. I look forward to many more heartwarming stories coming to life as we introduce True Doors to colleagues at events across North America.”
