AA snd care home

Am I right in my assumption that if you are not self funding and living in a care home, AA should not be in payment?
Thanks in advance.

    That's correct, as stated on the AA eligibility page of gov.uk
    https://www.gov.uk/attendance-allowance/eligibility
    If you’re in a care home
    You cannot usually get Attendance Allowance if you live in a care home and your care is paid for by your local authority. You can still claim Attendance Allowance if you pay for all your care home costs yourself.
