Our Bereavement & Grief Support Program
So often families & individuals struggle following funeral services as the true impact and the reality of physical separation from their loved one sets in.
At Madison Memorial Home, we offer an ongoing aftercare program as a service, not just to families we have served, but to anyone who is struggling with the death of a loved one. This is a service we offer at no charge to all who would like to participate. The program includes two monthly meetings where those who have experienced the loss of a loved one come together to share their experiences, challenges and the opportunity to talk about living beyond the loss. Our aftercare program is facilitated by Jennifer Ellis Walters, a board-certified therapist & grief counselor from Madison with a tremendous amount of experience. For those experiencing more challenges than such a format provides, Jennifer is available at her office for private meetings.
We would love to have you join our continuing care program for as long or as short a time as you would like. Not only will you perhaps benefit from discussion with those who have gone through a loss, but you may also be very helpful to others as well.
Please feel welcome to attend.
