Loneliness can be fighted with group activities to enrich your life, keeping you fit. Simple activities like a bridge group, or a more specialized sportive activity for the elderly. If you finally found a suitable activity it turns out that there is no assistance on the location to help you getting there. It was only intended for more young people, there are no peers.
