Century Homecare was founded by James Njoroge and Julius Kihumba, both originally from Kenya. The Main office was opened in 2011 in Worcester, MA. Statistics state by 2010, the number of senior citizens is projected to double, from 35.5 million in 2000 to 52.6 million. Steady and increasing demand for home care means job security. As quoted in a Forbes magazine article with Njoroge and Kihumba, “One of the biggest challenges in the industry is to find qualified nurses. Nursing is a popular profession among immigrants…They (Century Homecare) are mindful that nurses are very mobile and ready to move on if a job doesn’t meet their side of the bargain. This means that Century Homecare invests heavily in smart technologies which make the life of nurses easier, and cover tuition fees for some… This advantage also translates to other immigrant groups – African, Spanish, Haitian and Vietnamese communities – as the company understands the special challenges faced by immigrants better that local competitors.” (Reference: Forbes Magazine, 9/8/15)
Our Commitment to Advancement
In 2016, Century Homecare has partnered with Quinsigamond Community College to train 20 of its home health aides as nurses and eventually, RNs. Once they finish school and complete their RN certification, the students will be eligible for management positions at Century.
Through the Workforce Training Fund, the company had to match the state’s grant, and on top of that contributed about $50,000 extra to go towards students’ salaries. “Paying students while they’re in classes will allow them to focus on school and not have to worry about money,” James Njoroge CEO said, “When these people graduate, we’re going to have enough nurses to service current clients. This is an investment in our future. If we have good employees, the patients will follow,” Njoroge said. (Reference: WBJournal.com, 1/13/16)
