22/09/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – daniel washington

Shift Report:

On arrival I met claire at Felas house and then left to go and pick Fela up from Carla and Micheals. On the way Micheal phoned to say that Fela wasn’t ready yet so we returned to Felas house to get some things and headed to the butchers. We then went to get Fela. We had handover and loaded up the car with Felas bags. I helped Fela with his shoes and jacket while claire did the board with him, offering Fela a walk in Chatterly or Longton park – Fela chose Longton.

We went straight to Longton park after leaving Carla and Micheals. We walked for 45mins stopping half way so that Fela could have his snack at a bench. During the walk Fela was vocal on and off.

We then headed to go back home. On arrival Fela removed his shoes and went to sit in his chair. I put some music on and did the board with him.

It was then time for lunch. Fela became vocal unhappy while putting his apron on but once he had sat down he seemed to be happier. We said prayer together and Fela ate well. Once he had finished his lunch I asked Fela if he would like the toilet as he was getting vocal unhappy again. Fela used the toilet and once he had finished he returned to his chair where he requested ‘juice in a cup’ afterwards he was still unhappy becoming sweaty and stamping his feet. Claire then did the board with Fela and he appeared to be happier. He then relaxed listening to music. Before we left to go drumming Fela put on his shoes and used the toilet, he became vocal maybe because he had a bowel movement. Afterwards he became vocal happy.

Fela enjoyed his drumming lesson with luke and did very well but i think he got over excited and started to Luke’s hand to try and get his finger to let luke know what track he wanted on next. Once this had happened claire stood next to fela for the rest of the lesson which stopped fela from being so demanding. We then went to the car where Fela enjoyed his snack and refreshments.

Once we had returned home fela removed his shoes and started to become agitated, clapping hands, jumping up and down, rocking backwards and forwards and making guttural noises this lasted around 25 mins. Zoe arrived and had handover. Fela was relaxing listening to music.

We then started to do some chores then it was time for dinner. We said prayer together and Fela ate neat and tidy he seemed to really enjoy his dinner tonight. Afterwards he went to sit and chose a DVD to watch.

I then prepared his snack and sat with him while he ate it afterwards he returned to watch the end of the film while Zoe ran his bath. I helped with his bath routine which he did really well. He is now splashing in the bath.
