Humans are the only living being who is aware that life is composed of several stages, and it will end at some point. During the process of life, man builds various concepts about death through what we experience daily in the surrounding environment. There is evidence in previous studies that have shown how they perceive the capture and death among older adults through technical discussion groups. The objective of this project is to extend the technique discussion groups to a group of seven women 65 years old, in order to identify their concept of death through the analysis of his speech. The results obtained allowed us to know its way of thinking about life and death and if this concept comes from a social representation is an idea a priori in the study population.
