This says "A huge responsibility is taking care of her". I don't think a responsibility can take care of a person. You don't want this.

Leave it as is. That way it says "It is my responsibility to take care of her".


Actually, you can improve it by changing the end to

, which is to take care of her.

many thanks CJ, I understand. Good night!

Sorry CJ, why is the reason that 'which is to take care of her' better than 'which is taking care of her', please?

I shoulder a huge responsibility, which is taking care of her.

In spite of the comma, 'which is taking care of her' has the same problem as 'that is taking care of her', namely, it can be misinterpreted as saying the huge responsibility is taking care of her.

That is written by someone who knows good English not me. I still don't understand.

What part of grammar is that, please?

I don't think it's any part of grammar. It's just that a group of words can have a crazy meaning if you don't interpret it as it was intended.

Compare:

I have an older brother, who is taking care of her.
I have a huge responsibility, which is taking care of her.

Many thanks CJ!!!
