17/10/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was vocally excited all day from waking to the evening when he had his snack. I’m not sure whether he was awake during the night. The highlights of his day were:

  • playing on tongue drum to George Benson in concert.
  • Cake bowl lickings after breakfast when Michael baked cakes.
  • We tried loading Breathe new life church service but it was taking ages to load so I offered him T.D. Jakes instead. He subsequently requested more of his preaching.
  • After lunch I gave him a haircut and a facial trim which included lots of hair combing which he finds therapeutic. Only the red Wahl trimmer seemed to do the job so not sure whether the other two need cleaning.
  • I phoned Nanna Hazel but she was unable to speak for long because she had a visitor so Fela could not speak to her, but she sent him kisses.
  • Michael sat with Fela in the evening whilst he watched ‘The Queen’s Corgi’. I went upstairs to do Admin.
  • Fela listened to ‘Burt Bacharach’ easy listening whilst he had his evening snack.
  • He is now relaxing quietly in the bath.
