Shift Report:

On my arrival I said hello to Fela, he was sat on the toilet, I then had handover.

After I encouraged Fela off the toilet, he had a bowel movement, Chris updated the board and I prepared the evening meal.

While the evening meal was cooking myself and Fela showed Chris some handle techniques, Fela did a good job, we did skull tapping, hug and tug and the hoop, after myself and Fela showed Chris some of the daily Makaton signs that Fela uses, Fela was very happy with all the praise I was giving about a good job.

We all sat down together for our evening meal, Fela was very excited, we said prayer and Fela started off eating very fast, I encouraged Fela to slow down, towards the end of the meal Fela kept dipping his food in his glass of water and the jug, I encouraged Fela to eat neat and tidy.

After Fela relaxed and Chris did the board and put the Jungle book on for Fela, after I completed chores and then I sat with Fela, I encouraged Fela onto his gym ball and he did really well, he bounced for 35 minutes and then went to sit on the toilet, Fela had a bowel movement.

Fela then had his evening snack sat at the table with myself and Chris, after Fela relaxed.

I showed Chris Fela’s bath routine and Chris helped.

Fela is now happily relaxing in the bath.
