WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FUNERAL HOMES?

We reach beyond the expectations of the families we serve. To us this means several things...being available to our families at all times, not just before and during the service but afterwards as well; offering a variety of options to our families to create a personalized service just for them; maintaining comfortable surroundings and a warm atmosphere at all times; and treating each family with the dignity and professionalism they deserve. We are committed to being the most professional, ethical and highest quality funeral home in the industry and here's how we do it...

  • Our Service Guarantee - If any portion of our services does not meet with your approval, that portion will be deducted from the service charge.

  • State-of-the-Art Facilities - We have three distinctive, fully equipped and staffed locations in the Dayton area, giving you the opportunity to choose a setting that is right for you.

  • Personalization - At Routsong Funeral Home we listen to our families and help them to create a service that is truly personal, meaningful and memorable, a real tribute to the life of their loved one. We go the extra mile to accommodate all the families' wishes.

  • Advanced Planning Consultants - Our Consultants can help to ease the emotional and financial burden at the time of death by assisting you with all those final details ahead of time.

  • Attention to Detail - We provide the following services for every family we serve at no additional cost, making Routsong Funeral Home unique among funeral homes not only in the Dayton area, but across the nation:
    • Memorial Tribute - Because this tribute is so meaningful to friends and loved ones we offer it to all the families we serve free of charge.

    • Aftercare / Support Groups / Grief Counseling - For continued support and reinforcement, Routsong Funeral Home has on staff a Consultant who is available to anyone in need. We also hold regular support groups for both adults and children that are open to everyone in the community.

    • Resource Library - Our resource library contains an extensive collection of videos, books and other materials that cover such topics as Explaining Death to Children, Surviving a Loss, and Coping with Grief. This library is available to all our families at anytime during business hours.

    • Greeters / Service Hosts - at the front door throughout visitations and services to open doors, greet guests and assist with all our families' needs.

    • Lounge Area - stocked with refreshments for you and your guests; offering coffee, tea, sodas and water, with room to serve snacks if the family desires.

    • Children's Entertainment Room - with TV, VCR, a video library and games.

  • Beyond the Service - During the time following the loss of a loved one, routine necessities can often add to an already stressful time. We support our families by offering the following services upon request at no additional charge:
    • Memory Collage Boards - A history of photographs is one of the best ways to illustrate a life well lived and it adds so much to a service. We will provide families with large foam boards for you to create a collage of the life of their loved one to display at the service.

    • Valet Parking - We will provide valet parking at our funeral home during the visitation and/or funeral service.

    • Lawn Care - We will arrange to have a family members' lawn mowed.

    • Snow Removal - We will arrange to have the walks and driveways at a family members' residence cleared of ice and snow for the safety of family and guests.

    • House Cleaning - We will arrange to have our cleaning service come to a family members' home or apartment and provide basic cleaning.

    • Vehicle Cleaning - If a family is not using our transportation to the funeral service, we will pick up, wash and deliver one of their personal vehicles prior to the funeral.

    • Home Setup - We will deliver folding chairs to a family members' home for in-home gatherings.

    • Dining Reservations - Many times families want to invite guests to a restaurant after the services to share memories, experience fellowship and thank those who attended the services of a loved one. We will coordinate this gathering at a local restaurant for their convenience.

    • Meat & Cheese Tray - We will deliver a meat and cheese tray to family members' home, or provide one at the service.

    • Coffee & More - We will deliver a large coffee urn, coffee, filters, cups, plates and napkins to a family members' residence.

    • Flower Pictures - To help the family acknowledge those who sent flowers, we will attach a photo of each floral arrangement to the floral card.

    • Grave Side Refreshments - We will provide bottled water at the cemetery during the summer months and hot beverages at the cemetery during the winter months.

    • Pet Adoption - In conjunction with SICSA, we will arrange for the adoption of any dog or cat left behind after a loss.
