About Us


“Those who walked before us have given so much and made possible the life we all enjoy.”

Gary Blake, CEO & Co-Founder

A life lived for others is a life worthwhile—has been the foundational principle of Creative Solutions in Healthcare since our inception in 2000.

We believe that caring for the elderly is a high honor. Our resident-respect approach to caring is what continues to be the driving force in the core strategy of our company. We will continue to treat our residents as we wish to be treated. Our love for our residents is best measured by the respect, dignity, and compassion we extend to them on a daily basis.

More than 20 years ago, Gary and Malisa Blake made a decision that would impact thousands of lives. In the year 2000, in Granbury, Texas the Blake’s purchased Granbury Care Center, which became the first home in the Creative Solutions in Healthcare (CSNHC) family.

The name of the company, Creative Solutions in Healthcare, was chosen intentionally. Every resident and every situation should be treated as unique and should be met with a creative solution. This way we honor our residents, respect our employees and show dignity to all in our care.

Our Values

We were founded with a strong belief in the guiding principle of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” To this day, those are words we live by. It is a credo that informs every decision. Our staff and leadership are dedicated to putting people first. We treat all of our residents with the respect, dignity, and compassion they deserve.

Today, the Creative Solutions in Healthcare family has grown to include more than 100 long-term care facilities across the state. Over the past two decades, we have served the needs of thousands of Texans every year. We look forward to welcoming you to the family.

Core Pillars

Compassionate Clinical Care

No two people are alike, and our treatment and care plan for each resident is just as unique. Compassionate clinical care means your loved one will be cared for by highly trained nursing staff who provide patient-centered attention at all times. We understand there is a difference between managing one’s care in a clinical versus a community setting and we are committed to developing a care plan that is right for each resident.

Nutritious Meals

We recognize the importance of food and how it impacts the quality of life not only as sustenance but as a pleasurable and social activity as well. At our homes, you will find menus that feature regional favorites, made with the highest quality ingredients to provide meals that are nutritious and delicious. It’s food our residents look forward to enjoying!

Enriching Lives

We are dedicated to providing the finest care possible to each of our residents. That means nurturing the body, mind and spirit. We achieve this through our imaginative and engaging life enrichment programs that are tailor-made to serve the individual needs and interests of residents in each of our facilities. It is our way of creating a healthy and happy community where residents not only live but belong.

Valued Employees

The heart of a healthcare worker is a little different from the rest. We have always known it and every day we experience it. Our team members are dedicated beyond comparison and every day, prioritize the health, well-being, and happiness of every person in their care. We work hard to make sure our team members know how much they are appreciated. From car giveaways–yes, cars–to generous compensation plans and frequent recognition, our healthcare staff understands we’ve never taken their dedication for granted, and never will.

Unparalleled Cleanliness

There is nothing more important in today’s world than the cleanliness of a nursing home. At every home, you will see our commitment to cleanliness isn’t anything new. It is in our DNA. For more than twenty years now, we have redefined the standard in cleanliness with our own White Glove Program. The White Glove Program begins with rigorous training and adherence to high standards that ensure a clean environment in every sense of the word.
