What is the difference in conservatorship and guardianship?

In most states, the terms "guardian" and "conservator" are interchangeable. They each refer to a person who is appointed to make decisions regarding living arrangements, medical care, financial and personal matters of a person, referred to legally as a "ward", who is no longer capable of making such decisions for himself.
