Shift Report:

After handover with Zoe and Chris, I did the board with Fela. He was happy with all the activities. we proceeded to do HANDLE. Fela pointed to the spikey ball so I did skull tapping. Then I asked him if he wanted peacemaker massage on his shoulders. He said yes and held out his arm indicating he wanted me to go down his arms and fingers. After about 20 minutes, I prompted him to roll the tennis ball under his right foot.

After a lovely chicken and pasta dinner cooked by Chris, Fela had his last muffin and some ice cream. He listened to R&B Christmas music on youtube for about 30 minutes to let his food settle, then we did the Improved Health video with Jules to Mama Mia music. This lasted for 30 minutes. Fela did it sluggishly but he finished it. Fantastic job, Fela!

After his snack, I put on some relaxing sealife nature sounds on youtube. I gave him a facial trim as Chris was running his bath and just before Claire arrived. Michael came to collect me and we left around 21:00. Fela was in a happy mood all evening and was smiling and laughing a lot.
