"Our agency supports over 150 adults to live independently in the community. The Special Considerations program has helped our residents and their families plan for final expenses in a supportive and more flexible way than has been available to them in the past. This product can adjust to the changes that occur over the course of an adult’s life. No longer are families tied to one service or geographic location when making burial plans. In our experience, when the service was needed, all it took was a phone call to get started with a quick response time. This is beneficial to families during a stressful event. We are grateful to have learned about the Special Considerations program. It has been a great option for the folks who receive our services."

You could not find a more giving, helpful, and caring person to assist our most precious consumers we serve. I would be willing to talk to anyone about the company she works for and about her."

“Whenever I speak of Allison and Special Considerations within my circle of colleagues, we always agree – they are the best at what they do and they care. And it’s the second part that really sets them apart. They care. Special Considerations makes a sensitive and intimidating process super simple, but it’s the ‘being there for you’ when the day comes that enables me to put my complete trust in their service.”

We started our relationship with Special Considerations in August of 2011. As a leading provider of services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, substance abuse and mental illness in North Carolina we are naturally sensitive to our service partners. Working with Special Considerations, who offers such a valuable service to those we support and their families, has been a very rewarding experience. Special Considerations' staff carefully explained their program and literally traveled the state to meet with our staff and families. Outstanding customer service and the feedback we have received from the families participating in the service has been positive. A very professional and conscientious company.

There is no other business out there that comes close to meeting the needs for individuals with Intellectual disabilities for their end of life needs. My experience with Special Considerations has been above and beyond the satisfaction that I expected. A pre-need is a great investment for individuals that can’t afford higher premiums because of their health and age. I would highly recommend anyone to give Special Consideration a call and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff for all your pre-needs.
