20/12/2019 – Day & Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was processing slowly today but seemed calm and contented to take things at this pace. He chose to go upstairs and listen to Christmas music – mainly Nat King cole, then later Sax music.

Claire and I did the board and decided to offer him the gym. He had his snack of some tea as he had a late cooked breakfast. Then he and Claire cut out PECS sentences from a laminated A4 page. Fela cut very accurately as usual. He opened Nanna Hazel’s christmas card, and I read it to him.

Fela opted for the gym and did well – using 4 machines for a total of 45 minutes. On returning home , he had lunch. He seemed very tired after so I prompted him to sleep upstairs. He had a nap of approximately just over the hour.

When he awoke, I gave him a snack, then did the board with him. I offered a hair cut which he seemed keen on, so I did it followed by a facial trim.

Fela enjoyed them both, and did not want them to end. After dinner, we did the board and he was full of beans so I prompted him to do some dancing for about 20 minutes. At the time of writing he is in the bath and I’m just about to check on him.
