2. Please provide the total number of psychiatric nursing home beds suitable for people with dementia in Devon; the name of the homes, the number of beds for this purpose and towns in which they are located.”
We do not hold a central list of nursing homes providing beds for people with dementia. When a care home registers with the Care Quality Commission they specify their ‘specialisms’, and one of these criteria is ‘dementia’. A list of nursing homes can be found via the above link, and a search can then be conducted for each home’s specialisms.
