Inspection carried out on 31 May 2013

During a routine inspection

When we visited there was one staff member and one person who used the service in the home. The latter showed us their room and pointed out some of the things they liked in there. Another person was at a local swimming pool with two staff members, and two other people were at day centres. They returned to the home later so we were able to meet them. All the people who used the service followed their own individual routines and appeared settled and content.

During our inspection a member of staff prepared the evening meal in the kitchen. One of the people who used the service sat with her and took an interest in the cooking process. The member of staff made vegetarian curry for three people and a gluten-free burger for a fourth who said they didn�t want the curry. Fresh produce was used and food hygiene principles followed.

Staff got on well with the people who used the service and relationships between them and the people they supported were warm and friendly. They told us they enjoyed working at Cana Gardens.

Care plans/risk assessments had not always been put in place/kept up to date following incidents of behaviour that challenges us. Two care plans/risk assessments for medication administration did not contain enough detail to help ensure people were safe. Some improvements to the premises were needed.
