Family Caregiver Alliance


LifeCourse Strategies (LCS) has been providing consulting services since 2003 (our original name was LifeCourse Care, but we changed it to LifeCourse Strategies in 2004 due to our being confused with a home care agency model). Over the past 20 years, our consulting firm has expanded its services and practice areas. Initially, we focused on older adults and caregivers, but we have since added services for adults with serious illnesses, palliative care, and homelessness.

Our broader LifeCourse Strategies team includes consultants with expertise in research, evaluation, project development, and strategic planning in the areas of aging, caregiving, palliative care, serious illness, and homelessness.

Design Evolution

We created a Möbius strip logo back in 2003 that we updated with our name change in 2004. We elected to use a Möbius strip to reflect the fluid interconnectedness of people and environments. A “We are all in this together” kind of thinking.
