About Commonwise Home Therapy
Commonwise Home Therapy can pick up where insurance leaves off.
What we do
We provide geriatric physical therapy services in Charlottesville, Richmond, and the surrounding counties. While traditional in-home physical therapy services are prescribed by a physician and delivered by large home health organizations, Commonwise works privately with clients who wish to continue therapy beyond their coverage period
How we work
All Commonwise therapy sessions take place in the homes of our clients. Our professional Physical Therapists create a customized schedule and Care Plan for each client which reflects their unique goals, with relationships often continuing for years.
Who we are
Commonwise Physical Therapists are licensed health professionals with specific graduate training in physical therapy. Our private relationship structure helps Commonwise attract therapists who are passionate about developing long term partnerships that truly help clients and realize their goals. As a result, our therapists are some of the most respected and coveted professionals in our communities.
Why we are different
One of the main distinctions between Commonwise and traditional in-home physical therapy is the relationship that forms between therapist and client. Because we contract with clients privately, therapy can continue indefinitely. As a result, consistent companionship for older adults is another unique benefit of working with Cornerstone.
About Commonwise Home Therapy
Commonwise Home Therapy originated as Becky Williams, PT. Ms. Williams offered private physical therapy services to older adults in Central Virginia for many years, earning a reputation for providing high-quality in-home therapy with an extraordinary awareness of the unique needs of older adults. Demand for her private services soon exceeded her capacity and she hired several talented therapists to join her new firm, BW PT. When Ms. Williams retired in 2018, her practice, including its operations and philosophy, was purchased by Cornerstone Physical Therapy, which continued to provide services in multiple markets.
In 2021, Cornerstone was acquired by Commonwise Home Care to become Commonwise Home Therapy. Commonwise is dedicating Ms. Williams’ original vision.

“From my first call seeking services until the Caregiver called me at 8 AM the morning my Mom passed, everyone with your company was first class. I threw a couple of last minute curve balls at Michelle when another company informed us they could not fulfil existing scheduled care taker hours. She was understanding, confident, and always came through with good news to fill the gaps (and ease the stress). Bottom line…I would refer your company to anybody.”
“My mom needed this round-the clock care for several months, and Commonwise Home Care of Richmond was truly a blessing for our family. Each and every caregiver was friendly, kind, compassionate, intelligent, and seemed to know just what my mom needed – some quiet time, to watch an up-lifting Hallmark movie, or engage in animated conversation.”
“I can’t thank you enough for your help in getting my uncle home and then in caring for him once he was there. I was able to bring my dad and mom to see him on Sunday, and it meant so much to be able to touch him and talk to him. You helped make a terrible situation substantially better – he deserved to be able to die at home surrounded by those who love him. Also, as advertised, you caretakers truly were top notch. Again, thank you. I’ll recommend you to anyone who’ll listen.”
