About Us


Ally Wellness

Traditional healthcare makes it hard for people to reach their health goals due to endless paperwork, doctors’ visits, out-of-pocket expenses, transportation difficulties, and lack of communication. Founder Emily Stanton created Ally Wellness to provide personalized healthcare and a sense of community to older patients.

By offering both concierge-style appointments and group health classes, Ally Wellness allows clients to receive personalized care and a detailed plan to efficiently achieve their health and fitness goals.

A Note from

Emily Stanton

(Founder & Geriatric Specialist)

I am deeply passionate about equipping aging adults to avoid the unnecessary perils of aging. My goal is to help people adjust to the aging process successfully, independently, and safely in their homes. I also educate caregivers on how to make that happen for their loved ones.

In addition to earning my master’s degree in physical therapy, I became a board-certified geriatric specialist in 2019. I’ve worked in various healthcare settings including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, home healthcare, and outpatient clinics. My specialties include working with the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint replacements
  • Chronic pain
  • COPD
  • Diabetes-induced complications
  • Fall risk assessment & post-fall recovery
  • Rehabilitation after strokes, heart attacks, and other chronic medical issues

Throughout my years in the healthcare field, I discovered how many patients’ voices go unheard and how many personal and family goals go unmet. This makes both patients and their families feel lost, alone, and deprived of the care they need. I founded Ally Wellness to give aging people another option. An option where I listen to them, educate them and their families, and provide a clear path forward to health and independence.
