21/09/2021 – Morning & Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela arrived at Green Pastures at 9:20. He was fairly calm considering Michael handed over that Teresa reported his disturbed night. The highlights of Fela’s day were as follows:

  • He enjoyed mixing bowl lickings after Michael made raisin muffins. This coincided with his snack.
  • Fela played on the tongue drum to George Benson jazz.
  • I decided to replace the gym with walk at home – ‘improved health’ low impact – since Fela had not slept well. He was falling asleep during this but I managed to get him to complete the 30 minute video. Well done, Fela.
  • After lunch, we rang Nanna Hazel.
  • Fela was falling asleep during the chat so I prompted him to lied down for a nap of the red settee. He fell asleep immediately.
  • He enjoyed a fruit salad with some yogurt for his afternoon snack, and requested an ice lolly – his second for the day.
  • We did the board, then proceeded with playing with his tongue drum to John Coltrane jazz.
  • This was followed by HANDLE then foot physio exercises.
  • He chose some youtube videos of dance music videos before dinner.
  • He enjoyed a lamb curry with poppadums, rice, bombay potatoes and lovely muffins and ice cream for dessert.
  • Fela had a sudden injection of energy and danced for 35 minutes with Mama.
  • He is currently relaxing in the bath.

All in all, it has been a positive day with lots of smiles from Fela.
