Shift Report:

Fela enjoyed his facial scrub in the bath. He was in bed by 22:20.

I left the fan on and covered the duvet with a light blanket on the bottom half so his toes would by cozy. I left the fan on at his request. I also chose fire crackling ambience background music as a change from the usual.

I checked on Fela at 2:45 and 5:20 and he appeared to be asleep as no sound was coming from his room. Michael heard Fela stir at 7:20 so he prompted him to the loo then gave him his supplements and refreshments. I was late waking so I went up to greet him at 8:30. He was falling asleep as he was eating his grapes. Fela soon perked up when I put on some morning jazz music and did the board.

However, Fela was still sluggish and processing slowly until he left Green Pastures with Zoe and Dan at 10:30. He was in a happy mood.

*Fela became slightly agitated just before his shower but only forĀ  a few minutes [see arousal report].

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 4 – Agitated Fela became agitated for a few minutes when he was about to enter the shower. I didn't realise he had had a bowel movement so I prompted him back to the toilet to wipe himself. I apologised to him quickly when I realised that my mixed signals would have been confusing i.e. prompting him into the shower and back to wipe himself. Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: –
