09/10/2021 – Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela seemed happy and excited when he arrived around 17:00. After a quick handover with Zoe and Claire, they left and I attended to Fela. He was sweating quite a lot and fidgety so I prompted him to change his clothes as it was quite warm inside. He put on just a t-shirt and shorts and removed his socks.

Fela chose T.D. Jakes preaching over music. I offered him a facial trim which he accepted. I then prompted him to pat his face with cotton pads of witch hazel solution.  After dinner, he chose tongue drum then T.D. Jakes again which he played throughout the preaching. Around 19:15, I prepared a foot soak in a bowl for him with a few drops of frankincense oil.

After his snack, he finished T.D. Jakes, then just before his bath we transitioned to some church hymns to calm him down as he was a little to excited by the preaching. He is currently soaking quietly in the bath.
