Man Thanks Caretaker For Heroic Actions After Plane Crash

Am I the only one who reads "caretaker" and thinks "morgue"?

The definition of caretaker doesn't really support my connotation. But caregiver seems so much more appropriate in this case.

Google shows that in caretaker vs. caregiver, caretaker is winning.

So is there any real difference in definition between caretaker and caregiver? I thought the latter was just a strained PC-variant of the former.

I think of caretaker as someone who "takes care" of property and a caregiver as a health care professional or family member.
