    Question Everyday life

    Would it make sense to say "I look after his everyday life"?
    or "I look after him in everyday life"
    Which one is correct?
    And "daily" and "everyday" will be interchangable in the above sentences?

    Thanx.

    I'd use something different:

    I look after his day-to-day affairs.

    It depends what you are actually doing. My sentence doesn't mean physical care, to say that I'd use 'requirements'or 'needs'.

    Good suggestion. I think day-to-day needs will fit better in the context now. Thanks.
