Sometimes called guardianship (depending on the state), a conservatorship is a legal arrangement whereby a conservator (or guardian) is appointed to make decisions on the incapacitated person's, behalf when they are found unable to manage daily life without being a danger to themselves or others.
Conservatorship mostly deals with the management of the conservatee's finances, whereas guardianship deals with everyday care, such as help around the home, with medical care, etc. Britney Spears's conservatorship allows for both.
There are an estimated 1.5 million adults under guardianship in the U.S
Conservatorship/guardianship has recently come under the spotlight with the documentary about Britney Spears, along with the ongoing hearings about her own conservatorship.
Historically, conservatorships/guardianships were designed to protect people with decreasing faculties from those who want to take advantage of them by securing their resources. Independent third parties are assigned legal authority to make decisions on their behalf to best preserve their wellbeing and financial interests.
Holding space for someone means taking the initiative to be empathic to another person's circumstances and taking the time to do whatever is needed for them.
Holding space is ensuring the person in your life is seen and fully heard. It means setting time aside and giving them your undivided attention without redirecting the conversation that is supposed to be about them.
