Elea Institute

Elea Institute is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to advancing care for people with serious illness.

Our name, Elea Institute, is inspired by the historical Greek figure Elea, who was the personification of mercy and compassion. The literal translation of the word Elea is “bright and shining one.”

At Elea Institute, we are committed to honoring the mission of our predecessor organizations and endeavor to be a guiding light for those seeking and providing end-of-life care.
