01/05/2021 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

*Due to Emma’s arm injury, she was unable to come in for the afternoon shift.

Fela arrived at Green Pastures just before 14:00. He went to the loo upstairs then voluntarily came downstairs where we did the board. He proceeded to watch ‘Trolls’ DVD whilst I did some chores in the kitchen.

Nanna Hazel rang  just as ‘Trolls’ was finishing. Fela finished his snack. He eavesdropped on the conversation and said “Nanna” and “I love you”. Nanna was very pleased.

Fela was offered some colouring to which he gave a thumbs up. He coloured in his calming therapy colouring book as he listened to April jazz music in the background. We then switched to Breathe Church worship and prayer  service on youtube. I gave him some guidance on what colours to use as I did some sewing repairs.

Michael came downstairs to bake some muffins and make dinner. Fela enjoyed his pasta and leftovers then had a couple of low fat blueberry muffins. Just before leaving the table, he requested hot chocolate, and insisted that I do the sign as well.

After dinner we let the food settle then I prepared the footspa with ylang ylang essential oil. I also put on the shoulder massager. Fela was very pleased and soon relaxed completely. After his kalms and snack, we left for his home and arrived around 20:45. Emma arrived soon afterwards. When we left, Fela was relaxing in the bath and seemed calm and contented.
