About the Founder:

Linda Thalheimer is a national expert in long term care planning and licensed in almost every state. She has been a board member for CLTC, the Certification for Long Term Care and co-wrote the guide to long term care claims. She has her Retirement Insurance Certified Professional certification, RICP, as she understands LTC is a tree in the financial forest, and she needs to understand the forest to help her clients plant the right tree.  Linda started her career as a recruit by GE Financial in 2000.  It was a natural transition in careers from managing rehabilitation departments in a nursing home to helping people afford higher quality options.  In 2006, she worked with Empower, focusing on employer long term care offerings and in 2009, focused on growing her independent company.

With her experience as an occupational therapist in home care, assisted living, and nursing homes, as well as a trainer for Harvard’s Division on aging, Linda is well versed in the functional needs for long term care and the medical lingo of underwriters. Linda is an independent agent and represents all the non-captive products, traditional, hybrid, life with long term care riders, as well as non-traditional products with simplified to guaranteed underwriting.  It’s her priority to provide customized, financially appropriate long term care options to enable clients to make educated decisions. Linda recognizes that as a LTC agent, she is selling the promises of insurance companies. In 2015, Linda added claims support services to make sure those promises are kept.

As a national expert, Linda regularly provides training to employer groups, attorneys, insurance specialists, advisors and long term care facilities.  Linda believes the team approach to planning is one of most effective ways to provide excellence to clients’ overall plans.
