- Have their sole or main residence in a residential care home, a nursing home, a mental nursing home, a hostel or a hospital: the term sole or main residence is not defined in Council Tax legislation, although case law on the subject suggests that temporary absence from home does not constitute a change of residency
- Be receiving care or treatment
Confirmation will be sought from the place of residency.
