Many older people, find loneliness is the hardest thing to deal with. They sometimes have no family or friends, or have even lost touch or are estranged from them, and they deal with each lonely day with heartache and inner pain. Life is a monotony of trying to fill the days, the hours, but without someone to talk to, someone to share memories or life experience, lonely days and years are all they have. From 60, life, can be just moving slowly on to elderly age, with all the disabilities that comes with it, most caused by inaction or stress. Now imagine there was a wonderful French chateau, that welcomed you FREE, with other people there the same age, and just waiting to meet you. And just imagine that from that place, you have new friends to visit every time you go. Now imagine, that some will meet partners for life, others will find friendship with individuals or groups of people, and they all meet up back home or other places. Imagine how the world has now become an exciting place, a friendly place, a caring place, and when you return home each time, you no longer sit looking out the window, you are writing, phoning, emailing, people who want you. The weeks are now about other people who want you, other things to think about and other plans to make. Older people should have a lot of life to live, they can, in a wonderful private chateau, in france, that is the sanctuary for their loneliness and the springboard for their future adventures.
