14/03/2020 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

*Sorry this report is late but I had other admin to do for Team Fela.

Fela was very happy on arrival and remained happy the whole day. He was happy to sit on the red settee and listen to fireplace jazz on youtube. I offered him the shoulder massager which he seemed to enjoy – he had two rounds totalling 20 minutes.

He began to nod off as I was reading him a story of the ‘Lost Son’ from ‘365 Bible Stories and Prayers’ so afterwards I prompted him to lied down on the red settee. He slept for 1 hour and I only heard him get up briefly and go to the loo.

Fela ate well at dinner, and we had some chocolate and banana cake which i made before dinner. He took the rest home for the week. Afterwards I put Natalie Cole ‘Unforgettable’ album on youtube and enjoyed a dance to one of the songs with Fela. He found my dancing very amusing.

I trimmed Fela’s facial hair before his evening snack as he was scratching at them the whole day and he clearly needed it. He seemed very relieved when I was finished. As Fela was eating his snack of homemade popcorn and pistachios, I read him a poem and a prayer from ‘365 Bible Stories & Prayers’. He was full of smiles.

After snack, we got ready to take him home and returned just before 9pm to be greeted by Zoe. On our departure, Fela was just going into the bathroom to prepare for his bath.
