Meet The Manager

Sara Barbosa is Home Manager at Invicta Court.

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.

I’m enjoying working with the team to build Invicta Court’s reputation for great care, to enable residents to live their lives to the full, and to make residents’ wishes a reality.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

All Care UK homes now have purpose-built internal or external visiting suites available which enable visits to take place from behind a sealed glass panel, using a sound system to assist with communication. Where Government guidance and local health teams allow, these suites make it possible to continue visiting even when we have a case of Covid-19 in the home.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Our care home provides a telephone in some of our residents’ rooms.

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

Jaime Jukes
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.

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.

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.
