Ferial F. André, RN, CCM, CDP, CAEd – President, CEO

Inspired as a child by an Aunt that was a nurse, Ferial André sought to enrich her clients’ lives in the same way that the care her Aunt provided did. Unhappy with her clients’ treatment when referred to a different nursing agency, Ferial was driven to start her own private duty home health agency that would meet her high standards for client care. Over a decade has passed, and her passion for excellence and consistency of care is evident, whether Regal is assisting clients with ongoing medical needs, care management, or the daily necessities of life.

Today Ferial André is the Founder, President and CEO of the Regal Family of Companies which has grown to include Regal Home Health, Regal Care Management and Regal Concierge. Together they provide the comprehensive services needed by a demanding and discerning clientele, whether chronically ill, recovering from surgery, elderly, cognitively or physically impaired.

Ferial is a Registered Nurse, a Certified Case Manager, and a Certified Dementia Practitioner as well as a Certified Alzheimer Educator. In addition to her roles as President and CEO, Ferial plays an active part in directing client services as well as running day to day operations of the agency. Honored as one of the Palm Beach Medical Society’s “Heroes in Medicine” 2016, Ferial works closely with and serves as a resource to physicians, families and facilities, trust and estate attorneys, elder law attorneys and guardians as well, contributing her professional perspective on their clients’ needs and arranging top notch services and worry free care for them.
