Company Recreates Doors Of Dementia Patients’ Houses To Help Them Find Rooms And Feel At Home

Ever wanted to make a place feel more like home? Well, now you can with True Doors!

Whether you’re a college student wanting to personalize your dorm room entrance, or you’re a grandchild wanting to help a loved one at a care home feel more at home, True Doors are made-to-measure stickers of doors created for people to personalize the entrance to their room or apartment. You can either choose from their extensive collection of door stickers or have a tailor-made one. The best part? “The well-being service is especially useful for people with dementia, as these custom true doors stimulate memory and help with orientation, making it easier for people to find their rooms in new environments such as care homes.” What a beautiful idea!

I would imagine the "home doors" help create a more welcome environment instead of a "sterile door". I cannot even fathom the idea of loosing my memory, congratulations to the folks at True Doors for coming up with such an award winning idea!

I feel bad for the guy who had graffiti on his door. My grandmother has Alzheimer's, and her memory is the most clear when its morning, and we are playing a game of cards. She also recognizes smells (they trigger more memory recall) than that of her other senses. I love that these people are trying to help, its a terrible disease.
