05/11/2019 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was listening to Celine Dion on my arrival. I did the board with him and printed off an image of the film ‘Aeronauts’ and a small image of the reclining chairs at Vue cinema. He seemed happy about it.

We got to the cinema and entered the screen room just as the trailers were beginning. Fela was fixated on food for 2/3 of film, then when I began massaging behind his left ear, he relaxed enough to focus on the film, and seemed to enjoy the ending and the soundtrack when the credits rolled. When asked if he enjoyed the film he gave thumbs up.

 

Fela wanted to play cards for most of the afternoon at Green Pastures. He was offered colouring but said no and found it absorbing to watch me do the colouring and vocalise the colours I was using, then asking him to say it.

After dinner we ventured to Mow Cop. Fela would only walk for 10 minutes half way up the hill – chapel bank – and back again. He was more interested in his snack that was promised. I pointed out the moon and a few fireworks to him.

At the time of writing Fela is relaxing in the bath.
