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.

Empowering Your Memory through GRAPES Formula @ The Health & Aquatic Club
Jul 20 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Memory loss is common. It is not just for the elderly or those dealing with dementia / Alzheimer.

Dr. Ellie Nazemoff, author & healthy lifestyle advocate, will share brain science and practical methods to help you empower your memory.

You will:

  • Learn the neuroscience of brain memory
  • Understand the process of brain memory
  • Apply memory techniques using fun elements from Ellie’s published GRAPES Formula for Uplifting Your Happiness
  • Discover tips and tricks to remember and recall names, things we placed, and other natural ways to improve your daily memory and positive habit development
  • Realize what hormones improves memory
  • Recognize what foods enhance brain memory
  • Uncover the herbs, spices, and oils that boost brain memory

You will receive 1 signed book of your choice out of 3 books:

  • Book #1 – GRAPES for Your Happiness: 6-Step Actionable Formula that Uplifts Your Life
  • Book #2 – GRAPES: Journal for My Happiness
  • Book #3 – Self-Care for Family Caregivers: How to be More Resilient for Bouncing Back

You will also receive:
