Iva Thelen, CSA™




With a passion for helping others navigate senior living, Iva began her eldercare career in 2015 when the care of her mother and brother became her responsibility. Iva loves seniors and believes they should have the opportunity to maintain their quality of life for as long as possible. After years of learning the ropes of the senior living industry and receiving her national certification to be a Certified Senior Advisor®, Iva started Ideal Senior Living Solutions, LLC to help other families challenged with navigating senior living.

Iva realized that families’ demographic, financial, and care needs could be better met if they understood all their senior living options in the areas they desire to live.  

Iva is a board member of the Senior Center Activities, Inc. and Classics for a Cause.

Iva is originally from the metro Atlanta, Georgia area and has lived in West Bend, Wisconsin since 2001. She enjoys life to the fullest with her husband, son, and pet cat, Smokey.
