19/08/2021 – Afternoon shift – zoe holmes

Shift Report:

Fela was just coming out the toilet on on my arrival, I said hello and then had handover.

Fela relaxed lying on his sofa after lunch, Fela requested alone time, so staff did chores.

The district nurse came and dressed Fela’s bandage and showed me how to do this, I will show each member of the staff team, how to do this because the district nurse will not be coming everyday, so this is something we need to do.

After Fela relaxed, he had his afternoon snack, I prepared a fruit smoothie and he really did enjoy this, Fela watched a DVD and again requested to relax by himself.

I prepared the evening meal, we all sat down and said prayer, Fela ate well and used a small spoon to eat with, I used one so Fela could copy me.

After Fela relaxed until his evening snack.

After his evening snack Fela again relaxed, Dan supported Fela into the bath and Fela was happy to relax in his bath.

Mama arrived at 9pm and we had handover, I then supported Fela out of the bath, once upstairs I showed Carla, how the nurse had shown me how to dress Fela’s face.

When I left, Fela was completing his morning routine with Mama.
