Timber Ridge at Talus in Issaquah, Washington

(ISSAQUAH, Wash.) — NEWS: Timber Ridge at Talus, a thriving 62+ community, announced that despite the life expectancy decline in the U.S. during the last several years, largely due to COVID, the number of centenarians is increasing at the same time, which means many will be planning for the 100-year life in 2023.

The adage “live long and die short” was coined by Roger Landry, MD, MPH, in his book titled, Live Long, Die Short: A Guide to Authentic Health and Successful Aging, and it means we could all focus on living physically and intellectually active lives until the end.

Timber Ridge at Talus, managed by Life Care Services®, provides a setting to make this possible. The resort-style community, located in Issaquah, Washington, is perched on Cougar Mountain, surrounded by the Pacific Northwest’s world-famous evergreens, and is part of a 630-acre master-planned community featuring a collection of well-designed neighborhoods.

Due to its location, Timber Ridge residents spend more time hiking, kayaking, birdwatching, swimming, and so much more while leaving the cleaning, cooking, and mowing to the amazing Timber Ridge team.

“When I approached 70 years old, I knew I didn’t want to put the burden on my family to manage my life as I aged, and I also wanted to live near fun, active neighbors, so I chose Timber Ridge. I’m more active today than I ever was when I was working. Last year, my friends and I hiked our local trails, and we continue to stay on the move in the mountains,” said resident Dawn Brislawn.

Life Plan Communities like Timber Ridge are entrance fee communities, which means residents move in when they are healthy and active and have a full continuum of care, such as assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing, should they ever need it. Many communities such as Timber Ridge, feature lush amenities like resort-style swimming pools, multiple dining venues, cocktail bars, robust fitness programs, and much more.
