Deidre Dacanay

Since graduating as a physiotherapist in London, England more than 20 years ago, Deidre has enjoyed practising in a variety of clinical settings in the UK & Canada. She has clinical experience in many areas of practice including a more recent focus on treating clients with musculoskeletal & orthopaedic conditions.

Deidre enjoys working with clients in their home setting to optimize their function & independence.

Apart from her work as a homecare physiotherapist, she works with the Dartmouth Community Health Team & Partners for Healthier Weight providing physical activity wellness programming. In addition she teaches Tai Chi for Health programs at her local community centre.

Deidre believes that moving more, whether through structured physical activity or just having fun doing the activities you enjoy, is the key to healthier living.
