Memoir talk

Memoirist Helen Fremont will present “Perspective and Point of View in Memoir” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m., at the Gloucester Writers Center, 126 East Main St. Fremont’s first memoir, “After a Long Silence,” was published in 1999 and tells of being raised Roman Catholic and discovering in her 30s that her parents were in fact Jewish Holocaust survivors. Fremont, who works as a public defender in Boston, is currently working on a second memoir focusing on how the trauma of one generation is expressed in the next. Call Annie Thomas at 978-283-7738.

Family Care-givers

SeniorCare will host a program for family caregivers on Nov. 7 and 14, from 12 to 4 p.m. The two, four-hour sessions, are made possible by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, to provide practical guidance and training with easy to understand materials to help navigate the waters of caring for your loved one, including the physical and neurological effects of Alzheimer’s, habilitation therapy, communicating, challenging behaviors, daily living, everyday activities, keeping your loved one engaged, family dynamics, and — importantly — taking care of yourself. Light refreshments will be served. Free respite care offered during attendance. SeniorCare is located at 49 Blackburn Circle; meet in the Myra L. Herrick Conference Room. RSVP to Susan Harrison at 978-921-2065, ext. 221 or sharriso@nhs-healthlink.org.
