About Hennessy & Associates

image 3Hennessy & Associates, having helped numerous homes through HIQA registration and far beyond the  minimum requirements of the standard. We  need little introduction to the nursing home industry. After more than 16 years of assisting our valued customers, we remain a trusted provider of quality advice to our multiple nursing homes clients. Our extensive knowledge of the industry and the very high quality of our products, makes us very well placed to provide a top class, state of the art  service with our inspired Bundle package.


Hennessy & Associates have been advising Irish  business for almost 30 years, mostly in the field of Quality. In the course of this work H&A assisted over 1,000 Irish companies through ISO 9000 Registration and this included over 20 nursing homes.

Tony Hennessy, who’s background is in Quality Management was a guest lecturer to post graduate students, at University College Galway for 8 years and it was during this time  Hennessy & Associates developed over 100 Policies and Procedures specifically for Nursing Homes. These Policies and Procedures formed the platform for developing the HIQA specified P&P.


image5In recent years Hennessy & Associates were active in the developing and building of Nursing Homes. Foremost among these developments is the Retirement Village at Portumna, which includes a 60 bed Nursing Home and 22 Independent Living Units. Hennessy was also responsible for the building of Drumbear Lodge in Monaghan and the 100 bed Oakfield Nursing Home in Courtown, Co. Wexford.

Since the arrival of HIQA, H&A have been actively involved in assisting nursing homes with all aspects of the  Health Act 2007 and HIQA requirements. This work included the development of the many systems required, the provision of Policies and Procedures, the conducting of Audits and the all important staff training. Many homes passed their registration inspections with our help.

The  development of The Nursing Home Bundle is a natural progression for Hennessy & Associates and this new and innovated tool will assist Nursing Homes to remain compliant with the legislation, regulations and standards.

We will be there for you whenever, whatever.
