Many of the services you might receive in a hospital, nursing home, or doctor's office are available in the comfort of your own home through Avanti Home Health Services. Under the orders of and in coordination with your doctor(s), Avanti sends nurses and therapists to the homes of patients throughout Miami-Dade, FL. In the less costly environment of your own home, Avanti can improve the outcomes of medical care while reducing costs. For qualified patients, Medicare pays Avanti 100% of allowable charges (no deductible to meet, no co-pay). Contact Avanti if you want more help managing a medical condition at home, you want help transition from an inpatient facility to home, you are trying to prevent rehospitalization, or you are looking to get discharged as soon as possible.
More than in-home nursing or in-home rehab, Avanti Home Health Services takes a team approach to your skilled medical needs. By coordinating the services of multiple professions into one cohesive care plan, from one care team, every element of your care plan can meet the highest professional standards to maximize outcomes.

Not Just Medical Care - Life Care
The Avanti Home Health philosophy is that patients in home health need more than focused attention on the primary diagnosis. More than caring for your disease, we provide medical care for your quality of life. For instance, if an Avanti nurse is checking on an elderly patient at home with pneumonia, we also assess for the strength and ability loss that can occur with bed rest. When there has been strength loss, we send a physical therapist to develop the program that will get our patient back to full ability as soon as possible. We may send an aide to help around the house while our patient is regaining strength. If strength recovery is going to take a long time, we can send an occupational therapist to teach new ways of doing things independently at home - to minimize the burden on family caregivers.
Often, a person's need for in-home support extends past the time that health insurance will pay. Long-term care (and especially long-term support) exceeds the scope of normal health insurance, but that doesn't mean Avanti Home Health stops helping you there. Our
private duty home care
can transition your care from interim medical assistance to long-term support and explore other payment options such as Medicaid waiver services, veterans' benefits, and private pay plans.
When we look at a patient as a whole person, no one diagnosis stands in isolation. Every medical situation involves other diagnoses, other health considerations, the home environment, family, finances, and more. Our multidisciplinary team stands prepared to see and care for patients as whole people.
