21/05/2021 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

On my arrival, I greeted Fela who was calmly listening to a musical compilation on youtube as he rocked in his chair. I had a handover with Claire and Zoe, then I did the board. Fela seemed happy with the activities.

We played  a few round of cards then I read him three stories on the bears  from the 5 minute Treasury of stories. He chose this book instead of ‘the First Book of Nature’, and he was smiling at the funny bits and pointing to the pictures when asked. Claire then went through the social story of Amy starting. Fela had his snack and Amy arrived right on time. I introduced her to Fela and Claire. Fela was shy and only giving her sideways glances, but he seemed calm enough. Claire showed her around the house whilst I played another round of cards with Fela. This time we introduced a new deck of green cards with bigger print so he could sort them into categories after I shuffled the two decks.

Teresa arrived and after a quick handover and chatting with Fela, she proceeded to start cooking. Michael arrived to pick me up and I left just before 17:00.
