Volunteer training at Abraham House

Abraham House will offer a volunteer training class Aug. 18 from 10 a.m. to noon at the facility, 1203 Kemble St., Utica.

No prior health care experience is needed. Abraham House is looking for volunteers to be caregivers for its guests as well as for "buddies" to assist caregivers with sitting with guests and household needs such as laundry, answering the door and getting guests snacks or drinks. One-to-one training is provided thereafter based on the individual’s own schedule.

Abraham House provides a secure and compassionate home without charge to the terminally ill. For more information or to register, call Abraham House, 733-8210, or go online at www.theabrahamhouse.org.
