Opening new doors in dementia care

One of the biggest complaints a lot of people have regarding large care facilities is how cold and sterile they often feel.

Often in memory care units I see residents wandering from door to door wondering which room is theirs.  The doors are all the same and none feel (or look) like home.  I’ve found out about a product that helps with that problem.

Imagine being able to put a sticker on the door that makes an institutional door look just like the front door from your loved one’s home?  There’s a care facility in The Netherlands that’s doing just that for their residents and it’s receiving rave reviews from the residents.
