07/11/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela has been calm but vocal all day. From time to time I’ve asked him to be quiet as I think his constant vocalisations are becoming a habit. I suppose we could all ask him to “ssh” if it becomes too much.

The highlight of the day were:

  • cake bowl lickings accompanied by snack.
  • playing on tongue drum as he watched part of the Breathe church service live stream.
  • he has chosen to watch T.D. Jakes throughout most of the day.
  • He said hello to Nanna on the phone and blew her kisses.
  • After dinner, Michael offered him a DVD, during which he enjoyed a footspa with a few drops of ylang ylang essential oil. He chose ‘Beauty and the Beast’.
