A primary caregiver is a type of care giver aand is the person who takes primary responsibility for someone who cannot care fully for themselves. It may be a family member, a trained professional or another individual. Depending on culture there may be various members of the family engaged in care. The concept can be important in attachment theory as well as in family law, for example in guardianship and child custody.[1]

Some US states, such as California, have set out the responsibilities of the primary caregiver.[2]
