Shift Report:

Fela was at Mama and Michael’s house on my arrival, myself and Claire went in Fela’s car to collect Fela.

Fela was just finishing off his supplements, we then got ready to leave, we returned to Fela’s house and once inside Fela removed his outside clothes and then the board was done, Fela became agitated, rocking back and forth, clapping hands, this lasted a couple of minutes, he then relaxed listening to music and staff did chores.

Fela had his morning snack at the table and then returned to his chair and listened to music, the board was updated.

We then got ready to go out, we went on a neighbourhood walk and Fela was happy and content, full of smiles, we walked for approximately 40 minutes, once outside on the drive, Fela became very agitated, jumping on the spot, clapping hands, very noisy, Fela went into the house and took off his coat, shoes and jumper, he then went into the bathroom and staff encouraged Fela to remove his clothes and dry himself, Fela remained agitated throughout this, it lasted for twenty minutes, once calm Fela was full of smiles.

We then sat down and had lunch, Fela ate well, after he took his glass and apron out go the kitchen and the sat listening to music.

We all did the Makaton signs and Fela did really well and enjoyed doing these, after Claire read a first book of nature to Fela, myself and Fela listened and enjoyed the story.
