23/04/2021 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

When I arrived Fela was sitting in his rocking chair, playing cards with Barbra and listening to Joseph and the Multicolour Dream Coat CD.

Once they were finished, I brought some cards and two practical presents for him to open (they may come in handy over the weekend). One was a collection of Nature Sounds CD and the other some lounge/PJ shorts. both have been left upstairs – the shorts for trying, and the Cd in the CD player. It might help to mask any sounds which disturb Fela in the night. I read Fela’s cards to him. He was very much taken with the one from Liz with penguins.


We rang Nanna Hazel and she rang us back to sing ‘happy birthday’ to Fela. He was very pleased and communicated well – ‘good morning’ and ‘bye, bye’. I offered Fela a story or colouring. He chose story so I continued reading ‘Puss N’ Boots’. Afterwards, I  gave him a manicure which brought out a lot of smiles.

He was asking for chips. We did the board with him on Zoe’s arrival, and he chose a fish and chips takeaway. So Michael and I will collect it and bring it to the house later.
