He expected someone to take care of him.

In your sentence there is an infinitve clause that uses the passive voice "to be taken care of". The implied grammatical subject is the same as the main verb, ie "He" and there is no "by" phrase.

So an active infinitive clause will have an object "him" (to match "he") need a pronoun like "somebody" as the subject.
