30/05/2020 – Sleep shift – zoe ball

Shift Report:

Fela was given a 5 minute count down to pull the plug out of the bath. He did this by 2145.

Fela then got out and semi dry and used the toilet to pass urine. Fela then went upstairs and did his night time routine well.

Fela brushed his teeth and tried to pass urine again. This took a round 10 minutes but he managed it.


He then sat on the bed and I applied tiger balm to fela’s head, back, chest and behind his ears.

Fela then jumped into bed. Said his prayer and said goodnight at 2217.


I heard fela coughing at 2330. And again at 0155.


I checked fela at 0210 to see if he needed the toilet. But he still appeared asleep as he didn’t look at me or move.


I didn’t hear fela again until 0515. I went upstairs and prompted him to the toilet. He passed urine. The bed was dry. Fela then got back into bed.


I heard fela hissing and giggling up until 0540, then didn’t hear from him again until 0705.


I went up to see fela and asked if he needed the toilet. He jumped and and went to pass urine. As fela has had a second sleep and went to use the toilet right away. Fela had to have his supplements and vitamin c drink before getting in the shower. Fela seemed fine with this. Fela then sat on the toilet, before getting in the shower at 0730.


Fela washed himself well with prompting then he asked for 5. So I went downstairs to start his porridge. Fela got dry and decided to brush his teeth first. Maybe as I’d already put the toothbrush there.


Fela then rubbed in his creams and got dressed with prompting. Then was downstairs for 0810.


Fela had his aloe drink. Then ate his porridge and then took his remaining supplements at 0825. Fela was drinking his tea at 0840, while sat at the table, I gave fela a cloth and he wiped the table clean.


Fela took his apron to the kitchen and then went to sit on the toilet. At 0850. Fela had a large bowel movement. Washed his hands and then went to sit in the lounge to get his shoes on. Ready for Micheal to collect him.

Fela is now very happy and very vocal.
