Shift Report:

I arrived on shift, fela was just getting up to go to the bathroom, I took handover from Chloe, I then went up to fela and assisted him with his morning routine.

Fela did really well and was smiling and laughing throughout.

All creams applied and teeth brushed.

Fela then made his way downstairs, Emma did prayer with fela and then we sat with him whilst he had breakfast and supplements.

Fela then relaxed in his rocker and listened to bob Marley whilst drinking his tea.

We then cracked on with chores.

Fela then got his shoes on and used the toilet and then got his jacket on.

We then headed to Aldi and I nipped in to get the bits.

Fela then had his snack and drink.

We then headed to astbury mere for a lovely sunny walk, we walked for around 40 minutes, fela was full of smiles and laughing all the way round. We stopped halfway so fela could have a piece of fruit and drink.

We then headed home, once home fela removed his outdoor wear and headed to the toilet (b/m very small).

After using the toilet he made his way to the table, said prayer and we all ate lunch together.

Fela then made his own cup of tea and went to his rocker to relax and listen to music.

I then got the room sleep ready for fela, he then lay on the sofa and had the blanket over him with relaxing nature sounds on.

Fela appeared asleep at 2:55pm.

Fela got up at 3:30pm, made his way to the toilet, each time we asked fela if he was finished fela was vocal and agitated, it was clear that fela was falling asleep on the toilet but would not get off the toilet and became agitated.

Fela finally got off the toilet at 16:25pm, he made his way to the table and had his snack and drink.

Teresa came on shift so we gave her handover.

I then did the board with fela.

We then did the Makaton signs for book, father, horse and beautiful, fela did very well and seemed to already know some of the signs.

Fela then sat in his rocker and I read beauty and the beast to him, after only a couple of paragraphs fela was signing for other things, I asked fela if he wanted me to continue with the story but fela said finish.

I then asked fela if he would like to watch a dvd, fela said yes and chose to watch happy feet.

I then prepared tea.

Fela had his supplements at 5:30pm.

We all sat down for dinner at 6pm, we said prayer and fela ate well.

Fela then continued to watch his film.

We then got ready to go out, fela put his shoes on, then used the toilet. We then headed out for a neighbourhood walk.

We walked for round 35 minutes, towards the end fela became vocal unhappy, reassurance given that we were heading home. Once home fela appeared calmer, shoes and outdoor wear taken off and fela made his way to the table, had his snack, drink and supplement.

Fela then made his way to the bath at 8:40pm, Teresa assisted him with his night routine.
