How Our Funeral Home Helps Families Feel at Home

Grief is an unmooring emotion. It’s common for people to feel dazed and confused when they’re facing the loss of a precious loved one. Here at Krause Funeral Home, we pride ourselves on how we make our neighbors here in New Berlin, Brookfield, and throughout Milwaukee County feel at home in our facilities – even in the midst of their grief. Read on to learn about some of the ways we do this at our funeral home. 

Our four funeral homes are comfortable and beautiful.

From arrangements rooms to chapels to the charming café found at our New Berlin location, our inviting spaces accommodate groups of all sizes with ease. Knowing how stressful it is to lose someone you love, we want you to exhale while you’re with us as you rely on our team to take care of every detail. Our elegant and updated facilities encourage you to do exactly that.

We offer grief support services.

The weeks and months following a funeral can be some of the most challenging. Our grief support services help our neighbors cope with daily life after losing a loved one. We use our strong community ties to connect family members with a support group that meets their specific needs and demographics. We believe it’s important to feel seen and taken care of in your grief. If your needs revolve around other areas like housing and healthcare, we can connect you with vetted specialists and reliable resources.

We have a support dog to help you through your grief.

Bennie is our certified Grief Therapy Dog. With soft brown eyes and a positive, playful energy, Bennie lights up when he meets new people at our home. His calm spirit and grounding energy have helped comfort countless families here in Milwaukee. When Bennie comes into the room, adults and children relax. We’d love to set up a time for you and your family to meet Bennie and the rest of our staff.

We’re available 24/7.

Our dedicated team works around the clock to serve our neighbors. No matter what time of day a death occurs, two licensed and professional staff members will show up at your door to help take your loved one under our wing. We recognize the difficulty of this transition and always send a certified staff member in professional attire to assist you with whatever you need.

No matter where you are in your grief journey, our team is here to walk through it with you. We are passionate about helping our neighbors celebrate and honor their loved ones with a funeral service or reception that feels true to who they were in life. We start by making sure each family feels at home the second they walk through our doors in Milwaukee County.
