Door panels tell residents' stories at Canadian nursing home

November 20, 2017

At a nursing home in Stanley, New Brunswick, the doors to residents' rooms tell their stories and help with wayfinding, according to an article on the CBC News website.

Residents of Nashwaak Villa are personalizing their doors with large decals made to look so real it's hard to tell the doors aren't completely new, the article said.

Residents could choose a door decal from a catalogue or provide a photo of the door from their former home or a place that was special to them. 

Other doors feature stained glass, grill work and one shows a man fly fishing in the distance.
