Blog Awards 2017

this photo shows me on stage at the UK Blog Awards, with my Trophy !!!

One of the proudest moments of my Life

This was my proudest moment as an eldercare Blogger, late into the evening at the UK Blog Awards finals in London this April. This was the day I scooped what I consider to be, the ultimate award for my blogging.

Whilst winning awards is lovely, they need dusting and this is not why I enter. I enter because it raises awareness more and more about the issues our elderly face and how all too often they are being woefully failed. I am fearful of the future of social care in the UK and feel this blog will serve to be a useful point of reference as care homes and home care agencies close, and more and more of us chose to care for our elderly loved ones at home.

Caron Cares was chosen by a panel of three (every other category only had two) expert judges and to say I was blown away doesn’t even touch on how I was feeling. The video below does, however! The mad lady in the blue dress! I am shown at the 3min, 48 sec point.

 Blogging Season is here again and I am not sitting on my laurels this year.

I have been nominated again and now, I need you, lovely readers, to vote. Please vote using this link and then can I ask you to share this to as many platforms as you feel happy doing using the share buttons below.

Thank you for your vote and your support. It is genuinely appreciated in our fight for better care for both our elderly and those who care for them.



Award-winning blogger and former care columnist for Devon Life magazine. I am passionate about helping elderly people and people with dementia live purposeful and independent lives.
Designer of the Dementia Assistance Card and Points Of Light award recipient, Caron hopes to help carers when resources are limited and demand is ever-increasing. I am here to support you.

  1. AT 76 and a new-comer to blogging it is very difficult to know how and where it is suitable to blog. Does anyone have any ideas on a simple explanation for the elderly and who their targets of their blogs can be directed to? –obviously this depends to some extent on the nature of the subject.
    Is there a difference between a blog and a comment?
    Is any guidance on the internet about any good manners etc.-that we should know about?
