Fela was at Mama and Michael’s house on my arrival, we went in Fela’s car to collect Fela.

Fela was waiting for us, so we had handover and then returned to Fela’s house.

Once home Fela relaxed in the lounge and the board was updated and then staff did some chores.

Fela had his morning snack and then we got ready and headed out, we went to Tunstall Park and had a lovely walk around, after we went into the cafe and Fela had a cup of herbal tea and some fruit, Fela really enjoyed his time in the cafe and was full of smiles and very happy, after we headed back to Fela’s house.

Once home Fela went into the bathroom and I supported Fela to remove his top and vest and replaced with dry ones.

Fela then relaxed and the board was done, Teresa prepared lunch and Fela ate well.

Fela relaxed and then we got ready and headed to drumming, we were in a different room but Fela coped well and did really well, he drummed to stir it up, buffalo soldier and a couple of others, after Fela had snack and we returned home.

Fela’s nose was running alot before, during and after drumming, staff encouraged Fela to blow and wipe his nose.

Once home Teresa made Fela a honey, lemon and ginger tea, due to his running nose and sweating previously.

Fela relaxed and then we had our evening meal, after Fela finished watching his movie and then we got ready to go to Mama and Michael’s house, we headed out and dropped a happy Fela off at Green Pastures.

Throughout the day Fela as requested alot of alone time and once home after drumming Fela as appeared very tired, dozing off at some points, staff have chatted to Fela to keep him engaged and awake.
