Become a carer but not claim the allowence

I am on universal credit job search related  but wish to become a Carer for my Uncle 35 hours a week. If I claim Carers Allowance he will lose his severe premium of £62 a week .
Can I claim but not receive any money so that it does not effect his premium and he can pay me from that instead.
Would be very grateful for any answers 
Thank you 
also he gets full state pension but his severe payment on letter is paid as pension credit is that correct ?
