Its a legal conservatorship where one person takes financial and personal control of another person who cannot control their own life due to a mentally disease such as dementia. This term is hugely known thanks to the #FreeBritney and #FreeAmandaBynes movement. There are more than 1.5 million conservatorships in the United States, most of them are abusive.
Only in people with diagnosed very severe dementia, or a mental/physical illness are "allowed" to be in a conservatorship.
