Discounts for care home residents

The owner of a care home may be able to claim a discount if the only occupiers of the home are those people who receive care or treatment there.

This discount doesn't apply if anyone other than residents lives in the home e.g. the resident proprietor and any family.

If someone has moved permanently into a care home, leaving only one adult resident in their former address, then a 25% single person discount can be claimed in respect of that address.
