Martha Cashins, Owner

Martha opened her Home Instead Senior Care Offices in Essex County in January, 2000. The office provides service to all the towns and cities in Essex County, MA. Martha and her family have personal experience having had family members come to stay with them during recuperative times and during the last years of their lives.  She was able to gain the knowledge of how to navigate the health care system and she became aware of the absence of supportive services for those not requiring skilled needs. This prompted a career change for Martha, who had for many years sold medical devices for both Medtronic and C R Bard. Martha is now committed to making a difference by not only providing the best care possible but also by educating families on how to access the necessary services to keep their loved ones safe and as independent as possible wherever they call home. Martha’s extensive background in business and health care has enabled her to develop a team that has provided services to 100’s of families in the Merrimack Valley and all of Essex County, MA.
