Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Our family had an excellent experience with Alleva. The attention and services we received were both thorough (for example, navigating the logistics of the death certificates and obtaining copies for managing personal affairs) and personalized to our preferences. We felt cared for and confident that our family member was treated with dignity and respect throughout the entire process. I could not speak more highly of Alex-Michael and the way in which he helped us navigate the process."
