Fela was sat on the toilet when I arrived on shift at 0900. I had handover off Emma and then went to say good morning to fela. Fela had passed a medium bowel movement. Whilst on the toilet, fela had been scratching his keloids and made them bleed. Fela washed his hands when prompted and then went to sit down at 0945. Chloe got him a clean t-shirt.
Fela allowed me to clean his keloids and then he had a cup of tea. At 1000. I did the board with fela for the afternoon ahead.
At 1030, fela had his snack while listening to music. At 1130, Chloe offered fela a choice of jigsaw, colouring or cards. Fela declined all of these and asked for 5. So staff did some chores.
At 1230 fela used the toilet and listened to music until lunch time. Fela sat at the table and said his meal time prayer nicely with staff and ate very well.
Fela then continued to listen to music, staff carried on with some chores.
At 1445, we set off in the car for our walk. We arrived at 1500. Fela appeared to be happy and enjoying his walk in the sunshine. We explored different tracks and climbed some stairs. On the way back. Fela asked to sit on a bench. We sat and fela had a drink of water and we looked across the lake and at the boats.
Fela had his snack in the car and then we had a long drive back through leek, Biddulph Moor and Biddulph. We stopped at sainsburys to get some things for dinner. Fela and chloe stayed in the car.
Fela was scratching his keloids in the car so Chloe gave him some cotton wool with some cream on and he cleaned them himself.
We arrived back at fela’s House at 1630. Fela went straight to the toilet and washed his hands after. He went to sit on the sofa. Chloe asked fela if he wanted to colour, do a jigsaw play cards again. He declined. So he listened to music until tea time. Fela was falling asleep while it was cooking. We had to keep waking him.
Fela had his supplements at 1730 and dinner was ready at 1740. Fela sat at the table and said his prayer with staff and ate really well. Tonight’s dinner was quite spicy. Fela seemed to enjoy it, but we all needed tissues for our noses. Even fela! When finished, fela signed for a biscuit. He has a birthday biscuit and 3 spoons of ice cream.
At 1800 fela chose to watch Simbas Pride and then I did the board with him.
Fela used the toilet independently at 1910 and 1940.
At 1945, I told fela I was going to get his foot spa, which he seemed very happy about. I used ylang-ylang essential oils and warm water. I asked fela if I could sit next to him and clean his keloids and he moved the pillows for me. I gave fela one cotton pad to do one side and I did the other. Then I applied aloe gel to both sides.
At 2000, fela had his snack and cup of tea while chloe witnessed me signing the monies in.
Fela then listened to Joseph’s Technicolour Dream Coat for 20 minutes and was falling asleep, so mama rang and spoke to fela for 10 minutes.
At 2040, Chloe asked fela if he would like a shower instead of a bath if he was tired. Fela said no. Bath.
Fela was beginning to fall asleep again on the sofa so I asked fela at 2050, to go and sit on the toilet and I’d bring him the basket. Fela got into the bath at 2055 and completed his bath time routine. He is currently splashing in the bath. He is quiet and seems content.
All supplements taken. No problems. All in all, a nice day.
