28/02/2021 – Afternoon shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela had a nap in the afternoon for one hour as he looked very tired after lunch. On waking, he was offered his diluted juice and a fruit salad around 4pm. I did the board with him, and then proceeded to read him the first page of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ print out. I asked him if he wanted me to read more and he said ‘No’ so I  put on some music which included Brownstone, Eternal and Babyface. As he listened, I gave him a pedicure which he really enjoyed. I then trimmed his hair, and just managed not to make him look like a skinned cat.

We ate dinner – T-bone steak and sweet potato fries with veg. We then put on some music for dancing – Michael Bolton, Huey Lewis and the News (Fela didn’t get them) so I reverted to Michael Bolton. I prompted him to get up and dance intermittently s he kept pointing to the chair. all in all he got about 15 minutes. He requested hot chocolate so I made him some for his evening snack which he had with a handful of pistachios. I pit on relaxing music whilst he had his snack – the Eagles. He was happy to get up and put on his shoes around 8.3opm then we headed for home where Chloe was there to welcome us.

At the time of writing, he is splashing away vigorously in the bath.

All in all, a positive day especially the afternoon after his nap. He was a bit out of sorts and full of OCDs before then.
