Door Disguises, Cupboard Disguises and Exit Door Diversions for Dementia

Door Disguises for Dementia
Beautiful Murals delivering proven cupboard and exit door diversion strategies

Our custom-designed Dementia Products can keep your residents safe, and reduce falls and nursing home elopement and exit door stress by converting institutional-style doors into more soothing home-like spaces.   Dementia Door Disguises also called Door Camouflages or Door Diversions can save the cost of your staff interrupting your resident’s right to their privacy, independence, and time to make decisions for themselves. Based on research and industry training, our dementia exit diversion wraps can provide a view for both glass and/or solid doors to give satisfaction and remove the thought of escape from residents. The result is an overall calmer atmosphere that reduces their stress and uplifts them away from depression.

Our natural-looking interior door decals are enhanced to appeal to your elders’ visuospatial perception for the utmost effectiveness. Likewise, we design our wraps in partnership with you to suit your door sizes, architecture, decor style and demographic. We consider psychology at a world-class high level to stop or reduce behaviours such as banging, scratching, or urinating on doors as a direct result of poor environmental design. We use art to avoid the commercial aesthetic that photography and vector supergraphics create. As such, our exit diversion strategies can provide art reminiscence, meaningful colour, warming texture, and beauty – that we all seek for well-being.

It’s an easy process with evidence-based results that we have perfected since 2008. Call us or contact us to book a Free Discovery Call or On-site assessment (Brisbane) so you will no longer have time-consuming and stressful reactions from your residents due to your Aged Care Home’s Institutional design. Sharron Tancred was a Finalist in the 2022 HIA Building Women’s Awards for Professional Women in the Aged Care and Dementia Space.

Cupboard Door Disguises
For creative deinstitutionalization approach

In addition, if your elders are invading cupboards and scattering their contents everywhere, we have solutions.  The benefits of art for mental health are extremely well-researched. Cupboard Door Diversions are an ideal place for Art Reminiscence in the form of children’s art and their warming textures. To truly fix the problem, research shows that people will bring items back to their room because they feel it is lacking what they need. Visit our Room Door Wayfinding products to learn more. Still, our Art Series, Beach Hut or Garden Hut Series cupboard door decorations can be used to positively lift the vibe of your Aged Care Home design in a sustainable and meaningful way for everyone.

3D Beach, Garden or Shop Hut Door Disguises
Fun private property themes that engage good manners to prevent reactive behaviours

Want to create some fun? We commissioned photographers in Brighton (England) to photograph their famous Beach Huts, which are similar to Victoria’s Beach Huts. A Hut, being private property, is padlocked. Everybody knows that it would be bad manners and unlawful to break in. This everyday psychology can be used to disguise nurses’ stations using one-way vision film over any windows. In this way, residents regain their privacy and independence without loss of safety. In addition, staff gain focus time. Also, you can theme your environmental design with meaningful colour and a cultural cue. We design and install Beach, Garden or Shop Front decals with you to suit your organisation’s philosophy. They may require a lick of paint around your door architrave to create this 3D effect and we will show you where during the design phase. Contact us for more.
