Quick Tip: Help Opening Dishwasher Door

Here’s a quick tip:

An Occupational Therapy friend of AECorner.com shared a tip from an OT client regarding opening the dishwasher door. The client had weakness in their hands because of arthritis and couldn’t open the door on their dishwasher so they attached a suction cup grab bar to the front. Now they are able to maintain their independence in the kitchen!

Cindy also demonstrates how to use a dressing stick to help unlatch the lock found on some dishwasher doors.
