why do you need to pay a run on for the notice period? a couple are treated as jointy liable for rent while they are together, and if the tenancy is just in the name f the person who has gone into care, then reg 8 allows you to treat the partner as liable for the rent without a change in tenancy. If jointly liable, no issue at all.
Pension claims get 3 months autobackdating anyway – so thers no need to pay a 4 week notice period

I assume pensioners as we csant accept working age new claims, so the partner would need to claim UC for housing costs, unless temp accomm etc? g agae regs allow one month to clai form date one partner left the house and pension age regs allow 3 month s
