A New Approach to Getting Old.

With the number of pensioners growing year by year, they undoubtedly represent an increasingly important sector of our society.  Yet, in the main, their concerns, interests and aspirations are marginalised at best and virtually ignored at worst.

This unique on-line guide sets out to redress that situation, pulling together expert opinion and essential information on a huge range of topics – from keeping alligators as pets to global warming, celeriac, God and everything in between.

Arranged in a convenient alphabetical format and written almost entirely in English, Wrinklypedia gives the 21st century pensioner immediate access to endless invaluable advice that will transform virtually every aspect of their life.

Or, at least, explain to them why washing and muesli are such bad ideas.

Although our aim at Wrinklypedia has always been to make use of acknowledged experts in the many topics we cover, we have usually given up fairly quickly and mostly relied on people we already know.  This may mean that occasionally, or much more often, the information and/or opinions expressed have a fairly tenuous connection with reality. No pensioners were harmed in the making of this website.
