    I have seen a similar posting last month but it does not quite match our circumstances. County Council have some clients currently living in residential care , they now have choices about where and how they live. CC are helping them to find tenancies usually on a shared basis, 2 or 3 clients renting in the private sector a 3/4 bedroom property as they have severe learning difficulites and require 24/7 care. The care will be bought in by the tenants themselves.
    The difficulty is which LHA room rate to apply. My understanding is that if the care provided is not by one carer but on a rotational basis then only the shared room rate will apply to each tenant.
    The question is if the carer lived there permanentently as a carer for all tenants which room rate would apply?
    All answers gratefully received
