Personal Daily Living - Cleaning Dishes

July 20, 2022

We spend even more time doing dishes than we do vacuuming – 25 minutes each day.  This is something we need to learn to do efficiently if we want to have a life outside of the kitchen.  The internet also tells us that 1 in 3 people dread doing the dishes, so no one wants to spend more time than necessary completing this task.  The goal of Ability Matter’s program is to make sure that everyone is active in their community.  We can’t do that without efficiently taking care of things in the home.  Below are a sample of the YouTube videos that can help teach doing dishes, both by hand and with a dishwasher.  These videos teach those we serve how to do this task efficiently and our staff how to break down tasks into smaller steps to teach them effectively.  The advanced videos can help everyone to learn tips and tricks to get out of the kitchen and into the community while still having clean dishes.
