Nursing and Residential Care Home Discounts


Frequently Asked Questions

The full council tax bill assumes that there are 2 adults residing in a dwelling. However, for council tax purposes certain people will not be counted when looking at the number of adults.


On what grounds is a patient disregarded?

A person who is resident in a care home or hostel, or in an independent hospital in England, and who is receiving care or treatment there, is disregarded for the purpose of discount. Any person resident in the home who is not receiving care or treatment is not disregarded, and this will include anyone living in the home other than as a patient, for example resident staff or a resident proprietor and any family.

How do I apply?

Complete this Council Tax Discount Form (0.46MB) Once it has been assessed you will be notified of our decision.

For how long will the discount be allowed?

For as long as there are less than two adults in the property who are not disregarded. If there is any change in circumstances then you must notify us. Failure to do so may result in a penalty being imposed.
