I have a question. Can a person be employed to provide caregiving for a relative? I mean if a person needs someone to live with them, provide meals, lawn and house maintenance can they employ a relative to do that. Will the relative then be able to fill out a 1099 self employment form, take care of his/her own taxes, social security and everything else? I am unemployed and thinking of relocating but my father is 80 and does need such services. He is unwilling to relocate but jobs are very hard to find where I am.
