Shift Report:

I arrived on shift, fela was just sitting on the ottoman having his supplements. I had handover from Emma and started preparing his breakfast.

I then went up to fela and completed his morning routine.

Fela came downstairs and we sat with fela whilst we had his breakfast. Fela ate well and said prayer well.

After breakfast fela moved to his rocker, I did the board with fela and he relaxed and listened to music.

We then cracked on with chores.

Fela finished his cup of tea, popped his shoes on and then used the toilet (urine only). We then all got our outdoor wear on and headed out to the butchers, aldi and go get fuel.

Fela did really well in aldi and carried the shopping basket, put items in the shopping basket and carried the bag of items back to the car. Lots of praise given for a job done brilliantly.

Once back at the car fela had his snack.

We headed home and fela removed his outdoor wear and used the toilet (urine only).

Fela then relaxed in his rocker and had a cup of tea.

We served lunch at 12:50pm, we said prayer and fela ate well.

Fela then returned to his rocker and listened to music and finished his cup of tea.

We then sat with fela and printed off photos of pizza toppings, fela then wrote the words underneath and did really well.

We then did Makaton signs for pizza toppings. Fela did really well and appeared to be very excited about pizza.

Myself and Chloe then took it in turns to read felas story, fela appeared to enjoy this very much.

Fela then chose a dvd to watch (Pinocchio), we asked fela if he would like to lie down and fela said so we made him comfortable, drew the curtains and removed the phone.

Fela use the toilet at 14:40pm and passed urine.

Fela then returned to the sofa and lay down.

At 15:30pm fela used the toilet again (passed urine) and then went and lay back down.

Fela remained quiet whilst lying down and appeared asleep for around 30 minutes.

At 4pm fela had his snack and drink at the table.

We then sat with fela whilst he made his pizza. Fela did such an amazing job and made a very nice looking pizza. Fela appeared on the verge of agitation but this soon dissipated when we left the room and told him that we would continue making the pizza once he calmed down.

Once calm we continued to make the pizza.

Fela then made his way to the toilet where he stayed for around half hour.

Once finished he made his way to the rocker, took his supplements and relaxed listening to music.

We served dinner at 6pm and I sat with fela whilst he ate it, he said prayer well and appeared to thoroughly enjoy his pizza.

After a while we then got our outdoor wear on, fela used the toilet and we then headed out for a neighbourhood walk, we had a lovely brisk walk and fela appears to enjoy the time out.

Once back fela washed his hands and then relaxed listening to soft rock music and drinking his cup of tea.

Fela had his supplement at 8pm.

I then sat with fela whilst he had his snack and finished his tea.

Fela then had a call with mama, we informed mama that fela had been amazing today and how well he had done at all activities. Lots of praise was given.
