    Does anyone else administer both of these? If so, and a DHP is awarded to counter under occupancy provisions, are you taking account of this in the care assessment?

    The impact of doing so could be to reduce the financial care assistance by an amount equivalent to the DHP award, thus rendering the award of a DHP meaningless, other than in terms of which pot of money you are paying the person from.

    If you are not accounting for the award of  DHP in the social care assessment, by what means are you ignoring it?
