Meet The Manager

Jacqui Pompeus is The Home Manager at Invicta Court.

I trained as a nurse at Guy’s Hospital in London, and I worked at William Harvey Hospital for 16 years as Lead Nurse. Before moving to Care UK in 2019, I managed a nursing home in Bearsted for ten years. I joined Care UK as I wanted to pursue my dream of commissioning a brand new care home and shaping a culture and a team from scratch. Care UK is considered a sector leader, so it was too good an opportunity to miss.

I believe a Home Manager should be a great role model, be passionate and motivated and have a sense of humour. Having a great team is so important, and it’s crucial to recognize individuals’ achievements when they do a good job. When your team is happy, residents will be too.

Deputy Home Manager and Infection Prevention and Control Champion

I was keen to join Care UK because it is a well-respected organisation with impressive values and a strong portfolio of homes around the country. I joined Invicta Court at the beginning of its journey as I was keen to be involved in commissioning a new home and shaping the standards of care, right from the start.

My favourite part of the day at our Maidstone care home is when I get the chance to talk to the residents. Listening to their life experiences is fascinating, and by getting to know the people we care for, we’re better able to provide person-centred, high quality care.

Customer Relations Manager

Before joining the Invicta Court team in 2019, I was a Business Administrator in another local care home. I’ve also spent many years working in marketing. I love working in the care sector, and Care UK has a great reputation for its forward-thinking approach to care. When I saw this opportunity, I was keen to get involved – it’s exciting to be part of a team that’s built a home from scratch.

Seeing residents laughing and enjoying their day gives me a huge buzz. We offer fantastic activities and social events for people to enjoy. Deciding to move a loved one into care is very difficult for families. Being able to guide families through that journey and make the transition easier is vitally important and very rewarding.

Lifestyle Lead

I’m passionate about older people’s wellbeing and lifestyle. I used to be an Activity Coordinator at a dementia village and have been Head of Activities in another care home.
 
I researched Care UK and felt it was a company with a good reputation. I also felt there would be scope here to make an impact and share good practice on a larger scale. Being able to live a fulfilling life can have a hugely beneficial impact on an older person. I love reaching out to an individual and making a connection with them, no matter how fleeting it might be. Knowing that I have made a difference to another person’s day is a fantastic feeling. I’m passionate about inspiring colleagues to understand the importance of meaningful lifestyles and support people to deliver them.

Head Chef

I’ve been working as a chef since 2010 – for another care home company and for one of the UK’s most famous girls’ schools. I joined Invicta Court in March 2020 having heard so much about Care UK on social media and in the local community. I was keen to be part of the exciting story of this new care home in Maidstone.

In my previous role we catered for 1,000 people most days, as well as for many different events, so I’m used to juggling, multitasking and working as a team – and ensuring everything that comes out of my kitchen is of the best quality. Many of the skills I’ve learnt come in useful here at Invicta Court. It’s important to be caring, calm, organised, and passionate about food if you’re a Head Chef. You must also want to do the best for the home’s residents.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Good food is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and Invicta Court’s chef-led kitchen team creates delicious, nutritious dishes that residents love. The chef meets every new resident to learn about their dietary needs, and their likes and dislikes, and designs menus around their tastes. Menus are regularly updated, and if your loved one fancies something ‘off menu’ our chef will cook it for them.

Despite social distancing, meal times are a sociable occasion at Invicta Court. Residents spend their mealtimes in our bistro-style dining rooms to chat about their day and enjoy their meal in happy, unrushed surroundings. We also offer in-room dining for residents who may prefer to or need additional distancing. There’s always plenty of choice, and residents are always supported if they need help with any aspect of their meal. Snack and drink stations around the home have generous supplies that residents can help themselves to at any time of the day or night.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.

Activities Are So Important

The sky really is the limit at Invicta Court, where our lifestyle team – and the home team as a whole – is passionate about supporting residents to achieve their goals. Our days are filled with music and socially distanced keep fit and creative classes, wine tastings and much, much more.

If your loved one prefers more peace and quiet, our colleagues can spend one-to-one time with them, doing whatever they would like. How about a pamper session, puzzling together over the crossword, or taking a stroll around the garden? We have ample supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the colleagues caring for you will be wearing this at all times.
