21/05/2020 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela arrived around 14:00. It was very hot so I prompted him to remove his socks. I offered him colouring or reading a book, but he insisted on card playing by grabbing the tin in the red basket under my desk.

We played cards on and off for the rest of the afternoon until dinner time. He kept putting them away, then taking them out again for more. I did the board with him just before dinner. He ate well, and afterwards Michael offered him a DVD. He chose the new ‘Aladdin’ with Will Smith which he seemed to enjoy.

Fela entered the bath at 21:20. All supplements were taken.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 2b – Vocal unhappy Soon after arrival, I prompted Fela to remove his socks as it was so hot. I also was prompting him to remove his trousers and put on shorts, but he obviously did not see the need for this. In the end, we were able to remove his socks together. Did he have a bowel movement? No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? I was suffering from an allergic reaction from over-exposure to pollen on my morning walk, and a dull headache due to disturbed sleep. Plus, Fela had a walk this morning so it wasn't urgent.
