May I claim the federal or provincial disability amount (line 5844) when also claiming fees for full-time care in a nursing home?

The same rule should apply to federal line 316 and provincial line 5844. That is: the disability tax credit cannot be claimed if you are claiming fees for full-time care in a nursing home.
To ensure the Disability Credit is not claimed where fees for full-time care in a nursing home are, visit the Disability section and change option “Claim disability amount” to “Do not claim disability amount” to the question “Are you eligible for the disability amount on line 316”.
