28/04/2020 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was calm on arrival but slow to remove his shoes. He then went upstairs to sit on the red settee. Over the course of the morning, he listened to fireside jazz music on youtube, asked to play cards, then copied the poem about friends with Michael.

After lunch, Michael and Zoe Lou accompanied him to Chatterley Whitfield for a walk which lasted about 40 minutes. They went up the stairs to the top of the hill.

On return, he chose to play cards with Zoe Lou which included snap. Fela was laughing a lot and really enjoyed it. We offered her the opportunity to leave early so she did just after 17:00.

I played a bit more cards with Fela as he was listening to Bob Marley. Fela enjoyed his beef and veg stir fry, followed by a piece of his birthday cake. I gave him a facial trim just before his bath which he really enjoyed as he had been scratching most of the day. At the time of writing, he is relaxing in the bath. This was preceded by a large bowel movement.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 3 – Very Noisy Fela became noisy for a brief period during lunch. It may have been because Zoe Lou was eating a packet of crisps during lunch and Fela wanted some. So, I offered Fela a pack of his own crisps. Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: Yes – Michael and Zoe Lou took Fela to Chatterley Whitfield for a brisk walk of 40 minutes.
