History FPO

The story of Cortland Place is a story of generations.

In 1973 Norman Audino, Sr. purchased the former Levy mill building in Greenville, RI, developing it into a stunning industrial park that provided a home to scores of companies. Yet he knew even then that such a magnificent property would be better suited to residential purposes.

In 1988 Mr. Audino’s father died. His mother, needing help with everyday activities, moved to an assisted-living community. Whenever Mr. Audino would visit her – and her new group of friends – they would all comment on how nice it was to live in a place where they felt safe, comfortable and cared for.

Such comments gave Mr. Audino the impetus to build a multi-purpose assisted living facility of his own. He sold his other business holdings and, together with son Norman, poured his time and energy into renovating the one-time Levy mill complex on Austin Avenue. A sparkling new facility, Cortland Place, opened in 1997.

Today, father and son oversee day-to-day operations of Cortland Place, developing strategic plans and setting long-term goals for their thriving community. This familial approach to management is one of the most unique aspects to Cortland Place, and it is how residents of all ages are welcomed – with open arms, open minds, and open hearts.

Our family, caring for yours.
