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.

Paper Shredding for Charity: Saturday, May 22nd, 2021
Madison Memorial Home is making it easy for everyone to get rid of important & no longer usable paperwork while supporting a very important local cause- the public food pantry at the First Baptist Church of Madison. No tickets necessary.
We are hosting a paper-shredding event on Saturday, May 22nd from 10AM to 2PM in the parking lot of the funeral home, located at 159 Main Street in Madison... Small Boxes $10, Bankers Boxes $20, Large Boxes $30
Bring any sensitive documents you need to discard to the funeral home parking lot, where a shredding truck will be on hand for safe, secure disposal. All documents are shredded in a professional mobile shredding truck while you watch on a monitor and are then recycled. No need to remove paper clips or staples. No plastic, cardboard or hard drives accepted.
All proceeds will be donated to the First Baptist Church of Madison to be used to purchase much needed food to stock their public food pantry. Use of the shredding truck donated by the staff of Madison Memorial Home.
