12/12/2019 – Day shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was quiet and relaxed on my arrival. We played card games whilst he listened to hymns on youtube. During his snack, we asked him whether he wanted to go to the gym and sauna. He gave us the thumbs up.

Fela did brilliantly at the gym. He used the cross trainer, bicycle and treadmill for a total of 1 hour. We asked him if he wanted to go home or the sauna, and he chose the sauna. We then spent another half hour in the spa. By the time we returned home, it was after 13:00 but Fela did not seem desperate for food although he enjoyed his leftover pasta salad.

After lunch, we put on the fireplace on youtube with no music which was a surprise to me, but Fela gave it the thumbs up and seemed to find it therapeutic.

I  engaged him in some colouring with pencils – a big picture  which allowed us to colour together. It was a picture of ships on a stormy sea with black clouds.

At the end of my shift, Fela was happy and playing card with Zoe.
