30/06/2020 – Day shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela was happy and relaxed on my arrival. He was listening to a youtube combo of singers featuring Phil Collins. We had handover in the staff room with Zoe and Claire. After Fela had his snack, we ventured out to Tunstall park where we had a brisk walk around for 20 minutes. Fela would not be persuaded to go around a second time, and we noticed that he was lifting his right foot off the ground when we returned to the car. Fela had his water and some fruit on the way home.

Fela enjoyed his lunch of egg and potato salad of which he had three portions. He was happy to wipe the dining room table. After Claire left, we did the board with Fela and he was happy with the activities. We put on some lounge jazz music in the background. He chose to sit on the settee, and lifted up the fan so I asked him whether he wanted me to put it on to which he said yes. I gave him a manicure which he enjoyed.

*His middle right finger has a raggedy nail which is split so we will need to keep an eye on it. I applied some almond oil.

After he had a bowel movement, he ate his fruit snack then I read him a Paddington bear story – ‘the Marmalade Maze’. He absolutely enjoyed it, and we pointed to some pictures and did signing for some of the words e.g. grape, sandwich. Fela then signed a ‘happy birthday card’ for his Nanna.

As I prepare to leave, Fela is relaxing on the settee enjoying the cool breeze from the fan.
