I arrived on shift just before 1:30pm, I made my way into the lounge and said hello to fela and popped him some music on whilst he waited for lunch. Fela then made his way to the table, we said prayer and fela ate neat and tidy.
Mama and Michael then arrived with the food shopping so I put this away.
At 13:58pm fela became agitated, banging the table, bouncing up and down and very vocal, I asked fela If he was ok but fela appeared more agitated so I left the room and gave fela time to calm. This lasted about 15 minutes.
Once calm Emma asked fela If he would like to lie on the sofa, fela agreed and made his way over to the sofa, had his blankets placed on him and had little women dvd put on low. Fela then asked for a head massage so I did this for fela.
After a little while I could hear fela, he appeared happy so I went into him, fela was sitting up and pointing to the banana, I gave fela a banana and he started smiling.
Whilst I was preparing snack fela asked Emma to clean his keloids.
At 15:25pm fela had his snack and happily sat and watched his dvd whilst eating it.
Once he had finished I went and sat with fela in the lounge, fela promptly asked for a head massage, I asked fela to lie back and as I was about to kneel on the floor fela pulled the rocking chair up for me to sit on.
I then asked fela If he would like me to clean his keloids and fela said yes. I then asked fela If he would like me to pop some music on for him but fela said no, he then asked me to leave.
Fela then came into the staff room and asked for biscuits then made his way to the toilet.
Fela went to the toilet at 16:50pm and had a bowel movement, no blood and normal.
I asked fela if when he had finished on the toilet if he would like to make biscuits, fela smiled.
Once he had finished fela came into the kitchen and helped me make (gluten and dairy free cookies) (https://thewoodlandwife.co.uk/dairy-and-gluten-free-biscuits/), fela appeared to really enjoy this activity.
Fela then made his way back to the lounge and relaxed listening to music whilst i got dinner ready.

At 18:45pm fela asked for his keloids to be cleaned which I did. Fela then had 5 listening to music and then we asked fela to use the toilet before we go for a walk.
Fela popped his coat/hat/gloves/shoes on and we headed out for a neighbourhood walk, we walked for about 25 minutes. Fela appeared happy on the walk and seemed to enjoy the time out.
