What if I told you we could change our brain’s destiny without relying on a cure or advancements in medicine?

Our Mission:

The SDDC is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes, and more specifically to advance public knowledge and awareness of dementia and cognitive health as well as to develop and promote clinical and research programs to benefit those patients with dementia and cognitive disease.

WE SEEK TO SERVE COGNITIVELY IMPAIRED ELDERLY IN SAN DIEGO WITH COMMUNITY ACTION.
One of the goals of our group is to initiate new programs and projects hands-on which benefit the welfare of elderly cognitively impaired patients in our community. We also sponsor activities which promote cognitive health among seniors and across the lifespan.

WE ARE COMMUNITY INDIVIDUALS WORKING FOR CHANGE FOR OUR ELDERLY.
We are all people from the community, professionals and laypersons alike, with a common interest in helping to make the quality of life better for seniors with cognitive issues in San Diego.

Come join us!!
