Devon County Council does not hold this information. In common with other local authorities, we do not divide older people in residential/nursing care into two categories: those who have physical frailties and those who have dementia.
We categorise people by their primary support reason: physical support, sensory support, support with memory/cognition, learning disability support, mental health support and social support.
We publish the average fee we paid in a given year broken down by age band, primary support reason and service type – and this information is already in the public domain for all local authorities:
