If my brother and I are hiring a church friend to come and care for my 82 year old mother at my mother’s house, what are out legal responsibilities?

The church friend works about 30 hours per week. What are our liabilities and responsibilities in this situation. For example, are we responsible to provide unemployment insurance or benefits, medical insurance benefits, disability benefits? Also what about on the job injury to the employee? What should we do to protect ourselves?
