Maybe get in contact with you local senior center.  My mother lives alone and since joining her senior center she is more active than ever.  They will also arrange for tranportation if needed.  My mother also started volunteering at our Salvation Army and I've noticed her circle of friends have grown and she is in a better mood most of the time.  Not her usual grouchy self.

Any type of activity should help with loneliness and/or depression.

It is very thoughful of you to care and seek help for her.
