01/12/2019 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela calmed sufficiently after arrrival to enable us to eat around 13:30. He began to smile after twenty minutes of eating. Zoe handed over that he had bumped his head by accident at home so he was a bit agitated.

After Emma and Zoe left around 14:30 after a late lunch, Fela sat in his armchair and listened to hymns on youtube. He was picking his skin on face so I gave him some leaves from the aloe plant for him to apply to his face and finger which he had been picking at.

He enjoyed dancing with Mama to Kanye West & Sunday service choir on youtube. We danced for a full hour. Fela was suddenly full of energy, and after dinner, Michael put on ‘Happy Feet 2’ at which he became very excited. When the film finished we prompted him to come upstairs to undress and use the loo as I sensed that h’s ‘high’ may have been due to delaying going to the toilet even though I offered him during the afternoon. At the time of writing, he is sat on  the loo and about to go in the bath around 21:30.

All in all, a positive shift with no issues of concern.
