14/10/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela really enjoyed his shampoo and sleep oil massage before bed at 22:35. Bed socks and eye mask were put on, and fan left on. I didn’t hear Fela again until 6:35 so he appears to have slept for 8 hours.

I went to greet him, and prompted him to the loo. He came back to bed, and lay back down. I switched on the computer monitor so he could watch the  relaxing sleep video  as he lay down again as I wasn’t sure if it was too early to begin his morning routine.

When I went up to greet him at 7:30, he had a big smile on his face. I read to him from Psalm 27 as he enjoyed his morning refreshments. I chatted to him, and he signed from time to time for porridge with all the trimmings and egg, butter, cooking.

He entered the shower at 8:20, insisted on soaping up twice as usual, and was down for breakfast at 9:00. He was quiet whilst having his breakfast and supplements. Zoe and Teresa came to collect him and they left around 9:30. Fela seemed to be in a calm and happy mood.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 2a – Vocal Fela drew my attention to the fact that he was awake by becoming slightly vocal, but was relatively quiet throughout the rest of the morning. Did he have a bowel movement? No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: –
