residential provision


residential provision
   British
   a place in a boarding institution
   More than mere inelegance or circumlocution because sociological jargon must avoid the taboo board school, a prison for young criminals, and the equally abhorrent boarding school, attended by fee-paying pupils outside the state system. The resident may be a homeless geriatric, a lunatic, a chronic invalid, or a prisoner.
