Why You Should Choose a Family-Owned Funeral Home

When it comes to choosing the right funeral home, there are a lot of choices out there. Whether planning a funeral for a loved one who just passed away, or preplanning your own service, it can be hard to find a funeral home that fits. Many families decide to go with their local family-owned funeral home, over corporation-run ones. Family-owned funeral homes offer the compassion and care that you can’t get with corporate funerary services.

Treating You Like Family

Family is everything. Especially in times of loss and grief, such as the loss of a loved one; family is what you need to surround yourself with. A family-owned funeral home has generations of experience helping families like yours go through the hardships that loss can bring. Many of the families that we help each year are those we see in our community. We go to the same grocery stores and live in the same neighborhoods. At Matthew Funeral Home, we know many of our clients as neighbors. We put personal care into every service, because we know that your family deserves the best.

Loss is Personal

Where corporate funeral homes can treat you like a number, we know that there is a lot more to a funeral service than the viewing. The death of a family member is a very difficult time for all. There is a lot of change, and it happens fast; and in a sea of overwhelming grief. Family-owned funeral homes have decades of experience helping families like yours through the difficulties of losing a loved one. Our staff is ready to help you find the resources that you and your family need to get through these difficult times. We can help you find the assistance you need, even after the service, such as grief counselling. 

 

For almost 50 years, Matthew Funeral Home has been serving the Staten Island community. We can help with almost every aspect of your loved one’s memorial service. Our family is here to serve yours, every step of the way.
