Abstract: More than 30 years ago, Elder theorised multiple life-course trajectories in domains such as familyand work, punctuated by transitions that create the structure and rhythm of individual lives. Weargue that in the context of population ageing, family care should be added as a life-course domain.We conceptualise life courses of family care with core elements of ‘care as doing’ and ‘care asbeing in relationship’, creating hypothetical family care trajectories to illustrate the diversity oflife-course patterns of care. The framework provides a basis for considering influences of care oncumulative advantage/disadvantage for family carers.
