Fela was in the shower when I arrived on shift.
He got out and done his morning routine well but was scowling throughout.
Fela came down and had his breakfast and then we done the board.
Fela listened to some music and became agitated asking staff to go and was rocking and stamping his feet.
Fela then had a banana. Shortly after fela became agitated again, was very noisy, stomping and rocking a lot.
Once calm fela got ready
to head out. Fela used the toilet and had a bowel movement.
We headed to Longton park for a walk, fela was fully calm on the drive. Once we started walking around (after approx 5 minutes) fela started to become very noisy, seeming agitated and stamping his feet. We ended up having to head back to the car. On the way home fela calmed completely. Once home fela had his lunch. Fela ate well and after he choose a dvd (Joseph) fela seemed to really enjoy this but wanted his own company and asked staff to go. Fela had a cup of tea and then Fela done Makaton, fela became vocal and seemed unhappy while doing this – after makaton Alicia offered fela a book but he clearly twice said no and shook his head. Fela asked for 5.
Fela then used the toilet and had another normal bowel movement.
Fela then had his snack and listened to music.
Zoe arrived and we had handover and then done the board. I cleaned felas keloids while Zoe prepared dinner and fela ate really well after dinner fela started to become agitated when zoe mentioned our walk.
Fela then moved to his rocker and when we mentioned the walk again he said no and shook his head.
As fela had previously become agitated while out for a walk we didn’t want to push him as he seemed very up and down today.
Instead we put on some sensory lights and all sat and watched a film which fela really seemed to enjoy. Fela had his snack and once the film was over he used the toilet and then got into the bath and washed his hair and body. Fela is currently in the bath splashing away
