Here Today, Gone Tomorrow Conversation Game
Monday, April 24 at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Please join us for the Here Today, Gone Tomorrow conversation game about living, dying, and what matters most.
Conversations about death can be difficult to approach but we know that these discussions are important and necessary for clarifying values, wishes, and goals about care and end of life care. There are a number of tools such as advance care planning which helps to achieve these goals, but often this planning is left until a person is ageing or is diagnosed with a life limiting illness. To encourage de-stigmatizing these difficult conversations Victoria Hospice has developed a series of conversation starters that you can use in your home with family, friends, and loved ones.
Victoria Hospice Society would like to welcome community members to our facilitated game featuring its very own Here Today, Gone Tomorrow cards.
This card deck is an easy, safe, and sensitive way to reflect on what matters most in your life. We welcome you to join Victoria Hospice Education and Research Facilitators to engage in important discussions in a supportive environment.
The card deck can be used two ways, but we will be using these cards in its most simple form – to begin conversations. The conversation has four simple rules: listen, reflect, write, and share (or not!).
When you register, you will be put in a draw to win your very own card set so you can bring these discussions to your loved ones, friends, and family.
The event runs Monday April 24from 10:30 am to 12 pm at the Victoria Hospice Community Support Centre. Register for this event on Eventbrite.
Contact Marta Lefsrud, Community Education and Projects Lead for more information.
We look forward to seeing you there!
