מטפלת עיקרית ויחידה


Explanation:
מטפל is used for caregiver in modern Hebrew.
The main caregiver is called מטפל עיקרי.
I wonder when a sole caregiver would not also be the primary caregiver.

Explanation:
The Hebrew term for primary caregiver does not relate to 'sole' (Logically, you cannot be both 'primary' and 'sole'. You can be either of them). So, you can be a primary caregiver or a sole caregiver. Unlike primary caregiver, there is no professional Hebrew term for sole caregiver, and מטפל יחיד is just a simple translation.
