On our arrival Fela was at Mama and Michael’s house, we went in Fela’s car to collect Fela.
Fela was sitting waiting for us, we packed the car and then headed back to Fela’s house with Fela.
Once resting in the lounge I did the board with Fela and put a film on, we then had a cup of tea and then staff did chores.
At 10.37 Fela had his morning snack and then listened to music when his film had finished.
Before lunch Fela went to the toilet and sat down but didn’t have a bowel movement, we then all sat together and had lunch, Fela ate well.
After lunch Fela relaxed listening to music, I then did the social story with Fela about Chris coming to visit, Fela was happy with this and full of smiles, after I read Jack and the Beanstalk to Fela, he really enjoyed this, after I went through the social story again with Fela and then Claire applied vasaline to Fela’s Keloids at his request.
At 3pm Fela had his snack early due to Chris coming to visit.
Chris came to meet Fela, we all sat in the lounge and Fela was very happy to meet Chris, we all chatted and Fela especially enjoyed all the good things that we were telling Chris about Fela, he was full of smiles.
After Chris left at 4.30pm I gave Fela a facial trim and he appeared to enjoy this.
We then all sat down and had our evening meal, after Fela relaxed before we got ready to go out.
We headed out on a neighbourhood walk and Fela was happy and relaxed, Fela kept going into garden’s and when staff asked to not do it Fela became agitated, please see arousal state, once home Fela calmed.
Fela then relaxed and then had his evening snack.
Claire supported Fela with his bath routine and he is now relaxing in the bath.
Unfortunately due to waiting in for the nurse we were unable to go out this morning for a walk.
Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 5 – Very Agitated Fela became very agitated while on our evening walk, stamping feet, gutteral noises, sweating, rocking side to side and holding the lamppost and rocking it, we think this started because we asked Fela not to go in people's gardens on our walk, Fela did really well though not touching wing mirrors, the agitation continued once in the house and then Fela was just vocal. Did he have a bowel movement? No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: Yes – Neighbourhood walk
