09/02/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – chloe power

Shift Report:

Fela was finishing off his tea and fruit when I arrived on shift. Fela had already had his shower at this stage.

Alicia finished felas morning routine off and he then came down for breakfast, fela ate well and after he sat on his rocker and had a cup of tea while Alicia done the board. Shortly after we got ready and headed out. We done the shopping, the butchers and got fuel for the car while we were out. Fela came in to Aldi, carried the basket and put the shopping we needed in, counting things as they went in.

We then went to pay and fela unloaded everything onto the belt. We then returned to the car and fela loaded the bag into the boot. Fela was happy and smiley throughout.

We returned home and fela used the toilet, requesting time but didn’t have a bowel movement.

Shortly after we had lunch, I done the board and then after Alicia and I sorted out the pizza menu, printed it off and fela wrote all the words down under each piece of food. Fela done this really well and then after we all done the makaton for the pizza and toppings. Fela really enjoyed this (especially the sign for pizza).

Alicia and I then took turns (reading a page each) of ‘the dancing penguin’ fela again seemed to enjoy this.

Fela then lay down to try and sleep. It appears that he may have slept for approx 30mimutes.

Fela then got up use the toilet and then moved to the table to have his snack.

Once finished his snack fela used the menu for his pizza and made his pizzas up with all the ingredients. At one point Fela did look like he was on the verge of becoming agitated. We told fela that we would be back to finish the pizza when he calmed and he instantly calmed down.

Fela finished his pizza off and then requested the toilet. Once finished on the toilet fela listened to music before having dinner. Fela absolutely loved his pizza, and was smiling from ear to ear while eating it.

Fela then listened to music and we done the board before getting ready and heading out for a walk in the neighbourhood.

Once home fela had a cup of tea and continued listening to music. Fela then had his evening snack before speaking to carla on the phone.

Fela used the toilet and then got into the bath and is now splashing away tiredly
