13/11/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – zoe holmes

Shift Report:

On my arrival Fela was in the shower, I had handover from Teresa and then I went up to Fela.

I supported Fela with his morning routine, Fela did well completing his routine, he was vocal and slow at processing at some points.

Once downstairs Fela sat at the table with Dan and had his breakfast while I did some chores.

The board was done and Fela then relaxed listening to music, Fela was vocal at this point, Fela had his morning snack and then we got ready to go out.

We headed out on a neighbourhood walk and Fela chose the way, Fela did well on the walk but was vocal, we walked for approximately 40 minutes, when we returned home Fela took off his outer wear and then went into the bathroom, Dan supported Fela to get changed, Fela had a bowel movement, I then made Fela a lovely mug of hot chocolate.

We all relaxed and drank our hot drinks, I then did chores and prepared lunch.

Fela ate his lunch and then relaxed, I tried to encourage Fela to lie on the sofa but he declined so we put a DVD on, Fela was very happy and myself and Dan took turns sitting watching Paddington Bear with Fela.

At snack time Fela had some popcorn and was happy with this full of smiles, when it started to get dark I put on Fela’s sensory lights to make it nice and cosy.

I then prepared the evening meal while Fela relaxed watching the Croods, we then sat down for our meal, Fela ate very neat and tidy, no dipping food in his water and Fela wasn’t vocal at all, after Fela relaxed.

Fela then had his evening snack and again ate well, after Fela relaxed sitting in his rocking chair listening to relaxing music on YouTube.
