‘Wizer – Adjective. Having or showing experience, knowledge, or good judgment.’
You’ve worked hard, you’ve had many experiences and challenges, and you’ve gained a lot of knowledge and experience along the way. The later years of your life can be full of adventure, joy, and excitement. They can also be challenging, with new experiences and life events that will keep you on your toes. You might find yourself retiring in a new location. Or helping out with the grandkids while your kids go to work. You might decide to start a new work venture, or to keep investing time in the career you’ve built. Or, you might decide to travel the world, take up a new hobby, or just relax and enjoy your free time.
You might be encountering some extra challenges along the way – you might be dealing with reduced mobility, or learning to deal with your finances in retirement, or having to make some adjustments to your home as you get older. You may be facing some unexpected health challenges, which usually come with a hefty price tag. Or, you may feel overwhelmed in the face of having to make some big life decisions.
Here at Wizerlist, we want to help you navigate this time of your life, taking away some of the confusion around some of the issues you might face so that you can concentrate on what you really want to do, and the people you love.
You might find yourself having to make some big purchases at this stage of your life. From wheelchairs to medical alert systems, there are a lot of things that you might need to consider. Technology is advancing, making us more comfortable and secure – but it can be hard to cut through the marketing speak to know how a product really works and if it’s going to be useful to you. That’s where we come in – we’ll review products that you might be interested in, helping you to decide if it’s right before you invest in it.
We also offer guides, like the best states to retire in, or how to find a good retirement community. We’ll give you a rundown of everything you need to know, so when you’re making a big life decision, you’ll know what factors to consider.
What Will You Get from Us?

We have some core aims we want to stick to at Wizerlist:
Promoting Good Value for Money
We know that you will want to spend your money wisely. Ageing can bring a lot of monetary challenges, especially if you suffer from ill health. That’s why we want to promote products that are affordable for everyone. If you have a lot of money to spend, you might be tempted to spend it on the latest and most expensive technology out there – but sometimes, there are more budget-friendly versions of the same product that can free up some of your money to spend elsewhere.
We want to give you all the information you need in an easy-to-understand way. We won’t patronize you – we’ll just give you the facts without any unnecessary embellishments. If you find new technology overwhelming, don’t worry – we’ll explain what each term means. We’ll break down whether a product will be useful or not, hopefully saving you wasting your money on time on something that you don’t need.
We’ll give you our honest opinions on a product – whether we like it or not! If we like a product, we’ll give you all the details, letting you know why we think it’s so great. If we don’t like a product, we’ll highlight the pitfalls, so you don’t have to buy something that doesn’t work as it should. There are so many products out there on the market aimed at seniors – our honest reviews and comparisons will help you to find the best ones for you.
