There is a fine line between having someone live in your home to perform a job and having your privacy invaded. If there are areas in your house - perhaps the master bedroom or your personal office - to which you would prefer that your care-giver not have access, tell her. The same is true of your possessions. If you don't want the caregiver to have anything to do with your stereo equipment, jewelry, or other items, make this clear.
By the same token, if you have a live-in caregiver, respect her privacy, too. Short of an emergency, for instance, there is probably no reason for you to enter her room.
