Speak Up Game “How well do you know me?” for Advance Care Planning Day

Categories: Care, Community Engagement, Education, and Highlight.

This year, the Speak Up initiative is introducing a playful card-based game to test your family and friends knowledge. Sit with your loved ones or your substitute decision maker and ask any of the 10 questions in this not-so-trivial pursuit of clarifying your wishes and values for your future care.

This Game is available now in English and French for download at AdvanceCarePlanning.ca:

CHPCA staff came together to try out this game and see how well they know each other. In this short video, Cristina Deroo, CHPCA communications officer, speaks up about her wishes and values with her CHPCA colleagues. “It feels good when people around you like family and friends, know about your wishes and what you want in life” Cristina mentions in her reflections about the game. People can be surprised by the space between what they want and what their loved ones think they want. But the space between guessing and knowing can be closed with a conversation.
