Shift Report:

On arrival Fela was finishing his breakfast being vocal. Once Fela had finished he went to sit in his rocking chair to listen to music and we did the board together. We offered Fela the choice of a neighbourhood walk or Burslem Park – He chose Burslem Park. We arrived at the park at 10.40 we went to the playground where Fela walked over to the tyre swing and spent 5 mins spinning and swinging himself, we then went to use the monkey ropes spent 5 mins climbing and bouncing. We then left the playground and went for a walk. We walked for 20 mins before going back to the car. Fela enjoyed his water and snack on the ride home.
Once we returned home he became very adjitated he eventually removed his coat and shoes and went into the bathroom where we tried to get Fela changed into dry clothes, this took some time due to how adjitated he was. He then went to listen to music. At lunch time we said prayer together Fela remained adjitated at the dining table. Afterwards Carla changed his clothes again due to the sweat. At around 13.30 he was prompted to say down on the sofa he appeared to have had some sleep he woke at around 14.30 and was in a quiet mood but doesn’t seem himself.
