    In the UK, 'Carer' is normally used for anyone who cares for anyone - paid or unpaid, elderly or young. If you wanted to specify, then you could say 'carer for the elderly'.

    If you wrote 'carer' under 'occupation', then most people would assume it was caring for elderly people.

    In the United States, 'caregiver' is a generic term referring to a person, either paid or voluntary, who helps an older person with the activities of daily living, health care, financial matters, guidance, companionship and social interaction. A caregiver can provide more than one aspect of care. Most often the term refers to a family member or friend who aids the older person.

    But a carer or caregiver can also be looking after a younger disabled person, such as a handicapped son or daughter.
    'Aged care worker' is more specific, if you need it.
