A most enjoyable way of keeping in touch and helping loneliness is to be able to play ‘a game at an distance’. The game of Wordfeud is an excellent example. It is very similar to the game of Scrabble but can be played with an opponent remotely, once it has been set up on an mobile phone or tablet. Just download the Wordfeud App for Apple here or for Android here (the paid version does not include advertisements) and follow the instructions. It can be quite addictive but very good for ‘the little grey cells’ and will definitely reduce loneliness.
