A social problem is a complication that affects a person or group of people and reduces the standard of living of the group. When a person, or their social and family environment, are unable to face the new situation of loss of health, such as cognitive impairment of a relative, we talk about a social problem.
Social work is aimed at people who eventually find themselves in situations of risk, conflict, or breach of social and civil rights. It promotes the improvement of social situations(individual, familiar or collective) and personal capabilities and facilitates the access to services and social resources.
Group of people who share the same problems meet regularly and, guided by a professional, help each other by sharing experiences and information. It is an intervention that aims to improve the quality of life for non-professional caregivers (or relatives) and for people with cognitive impairment.
The synapsis is the communication between nerve cells. Neurons communicate through the release of a chemical signal (neurotransmitter) at the synapsis that connects to another neuron.
