This works on several levels: The resident can have some fun, it’s easier for those with failing eyesight to find their apartments, and relatives don’t have to follow the room numbers to visit their elders.

The stock designs start at €9o + €24 shipping, which equates to about $124 USD, but if you spread the cost out over several years it’s inexpensive.

Papa Strutts would have chosen a custom design that looked something like this:
