I'm not sure of the context you are referring to, so it's a difficult question to answer directly. Often the term 'Caretaker' is used to describe someone on a child's primary care team - there are often quite a few people involved directly with the care of an individual child. That's the context in which I probably use the word most often. People also use it in the context of family or friends who help care for the child both in and out of the hospital setting.
