In reply to the answer given below, we\'re looking at British vs. American English, Mr. Linton\'s answer being of the British variety.

My advice would be to do a Yahoo! search for both and see which one suits your context/purpose.

A suggestion : in many local authority texts these days , the single word 'carer' is used to describe people who look after an elderly parent, relative etc. Sometimes also 'care provider', but 'carer' is the most common.
