18/09/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

The highlights of the day were as follows:

  • Fela enjoyed an ice lolly which helped to cool and calm him down. This was followed by his snack of popcorn and walnuts.
  • We drove to Wetley Moor Common for a walk.
  • Fela requested pasta, pesto and fish on the drive back home so Michael gave him a choice of pasta, pesto and fish for lunch.
  • Michael baked a cake so Fela was offered lickings from the mixing bowl.
  • I suggested ‘Marmaduke’ as the film for his matinee movie and he was happy with this.
  • He chose to watch T.D. Jakes preaching after wards and was happy to watch a second video when it ran into it.
  • Fela was lethargic and sleepy throughout the afternoon.
  • I removed his bandage and re-applied dressings without the bandage to allow his head to ventilate.
  • After dinner, I let his food settle, did the board then brought him his foot spa with some bath gel and frankincense oil, and shoulder massager as part of his sensory activities.
  • He was offered relaxing music but chose to watch another video of T.D. Jakes. Perhaps he aspires to be a preacher?
  • As I write this report, he is relaxing in the bath.
