Enriching Lives

Bayside Institute Logo

Here at Bayside, we value our abilities in offering unparalleled opportunities for family fun and togetherness. Time with loved ones at Bayside is precious, whether it’s kayaking with the kids, playing golf or tennis with friends, or swaying with neighbors to the sounds of a great outdoor concert. But, let’s be honest. Once in awhile you need to take a little time for yourself…

Imagine grabbing a cup of coffee and slipping out the door to greet the morning sun. Hop on your bike and ride to the Point to discover a new hobby or ignite an undiscovered passion. Start your day by sharing your personal story in creative writing, enhancing your wellness with a healthy cooking class or learning to arrange flowers beautifully. Spend a quiet afternoon learning unique local history or wind down another beautiful day in Fenwick Island with a wine tasting by the bay.

As an innovative year-round program, Bayside Institute enriches lives by giving our members the gift of meaningful “me” time. Learn new skills, explore new subjects, embrace hobbies and share wisdom—in any number of fascinating interest areas. This is about you: “me” time is priceless.

Peripheral Neuropathy @ Upstairs in the Clubhouse
Jun 15 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

The first step in making your neuropathy better is to understand what it is.

Join Dr. Brian W. Scott, DC, BCN, CFMP author of the “Stop Peripheral Neuropathy Intensive Program” to learn about non-drug alternatives and solutions for managing your neuropathy. Find out how others are living vibrant, productive lives without being shackled by this debilitating condition.

Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition that can cause numbness, tingling, stabbing pain, burning and cold sensations primarily in the hands and feet, arms and legs.  People who are diabetic and/or have gone through chemo treatments for cancer, have poor circulation, stenosis in the spine or have been exposed to toxins are most susceptible, however, there are many causes.  It is confusing and frustrating as people can have difficulty with their balance, feeling the gas and brake pedals, walking can be painful, grip/hand and leg strength can be diminished, and sleep may be disturbed.

Dr. Brian Scott has spoken extensively at many resort-style communities on both coasts, and he has become the “Neuropathy doc” who is loved by all.  He has been licensed for over 30 years and Board Certified in Neuropathy.  For the last eight years, he has been focused on educating, counseling, and treating individuals who have this debilitating condition.
