Maintenance Superintendent and Safety Officer


Caring for the executive homes of English Rose Suites draws on a number of Ben Abel’s skills in building and repair, including masonry, carpentry and painting. He also shares his meticulous attention to detail in creating a safe, comforting and beautiful environment for residents.

“We care for residents like they’re our own family,” Ben says. “I take care of the homes like they’re my own, too.”

With more than six years of experience with English Rose Suites, Ben knows its historic locations well. He enjoys bringing new designs and finishes to each home, and works to continuously improve and customize each space to ensure ease of use, safety and comfort for residents. Improvement projects range from large upgrades — including kitchens and laundry rooms — to details like painted wood trim and quality finishes that beautify each room.

“I was born and raised a tinkerer,” Ben says, a passion that finds a good match in his work, which, he adds, “is different every day.” What remains constant is Ben’s commitment to the residents and homes of English Rose Suites and clients of bhome Home Care.
