Family and friends of the residents think the doors are wonderful. Residents really feel at home now.
The residents and their family think the true doors are nice and contribute to a cosy atmosphere.
This true door makes me feel at home, it suits me. My sister thinks so too.
The doors are so nice! Each one is so individual to the residents' lives and experiences. Each time we walk past them we talk about them. Certainly does bring a homely feeling.
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.
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.
My husband knows it's his room now. Thanks to the true door.
Residents now know which room is theirs. In the evenings they say: "I'm home, I'm going to sleep now!" There's less agitation. Family members are also very excited about the doors.
They now recognise their own front door. I also think it makes them feel more at home.
My father lived behind that door for 40 years. He hasn't got dementia, but he is really happy to have his old door. He thinks his door is beautiful.
