Shift Report:

Fela was finishing his water, at the dining table on my arrival, I said hello and then had handover.

After I did the board with Fela and showed him the different drums, ready for his drumming lesson, Fela appeared very happy with this.

We then got ready to go to drumming, Fela went to the toilet and then went to get his coat on, Fela then decided to go back into the lounge and pick everything up from his table, by his rocking chair, Fela then came back into the hall and put his coat on, once by the car Fela became vocal and was rocking side to side.

We then made our way to drumming, Dan met us and we put our hand sanitiser on, Fela was happy to do this, once in the room Fela did really well, he had remembered what they had done previously and Dan was happy with this.

We left drumming and once in the car Fela had his snack, we then ran some errands before returning home.

Once home Fela chose to watch Little Women, I started to prepare the evening meal.

At 4.45pm I did the board with Fela and then at 5.30pm Angelia gave Fela his supplements, Fela took a long time taking these and didn’t finish until 6pm, we then had our evening meal, Fela ate well and really enjoyed his meal.

After Fela continued to watch the rest of his movie.

At 7pm I cleaned Fela’s keloids due to the left one bleeding alot, due to Fela scratching, I applied a small dressing to this, at 7.15 myself and Fela did walk at home, Fela did absolutely brilliant and we were both laughing and happy.

After Fela appeared very tired, so I gave Fela his slinky to play with and I sat with Fela chatting to him.
