02/12/2019 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was in bed by 22:45 and when I checked on him he was snoring by 23:15. Hymns were left on low.

I checked on him at 3:00. He got up and went to the loo of his own accord but he was clearly half asleep and went straight back to bed.

I heard him  at 6:20 from the bottom of the stairs; it was a low tone but then became more noisy until breakfast at 9:30. He left Green Pastures in a happier mood having seen his cake being brought to the car.

Fela has been processing very slowly and has had moments of absent-mindedness when he appeared “stuck”. I’m not sure how much sleep he got after 3:00 even though he was only up once.

*Please bear in mind that when Fela is given to absent-mindedness, he will require a lot of patient waiting and touch prompts to get him to move on to the next task. however, AVOID touch prompts when he is agitated and keep vocal instructions to a minimum.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to On and off since 6:20 he has had moments of agitation accompanied by sluggishness and slow processing.
