Maria Kaitatzis from Fronditha Care recognised for her work in aged care


Maria Kaitatzis from the Fronditha Care facility in Lower Templestowe has been recognised for her work in the aged care sector as a recipient of ‘The OSCARS Recognition of Excellence’ program.

Maria was recognised by the OSCAR Care Group for her excellence and passion in creating nutritious, delicious and beautiful culturally-sensitive meals for her mostly Greek residents at the Fronditha Care facility.

Maria grew up in Greece’s second biggest city, Thessaloniki. Her passion for Mediterranean cuisine
was sparked from an early age, helping her mother and grandmother in the kitchen and seeing their
love when talking about ingredients and cooking.

Maria Kaitatzis works at the Fronditha Care facility in Lower Templestowe.

Six years later, Maria & her husband, Ioannis, brought their children, Andreas and Dimitra, to Australia. Soon after, Maria began working as Assistant Chef at Fronditha Care Clayton
and was then promoted to Head Chef at Fronditha Care Templestowe.

For four years, Maria has relished the chance to cook for her much-loved residents and often personalises their meals to their liking.

“I love creating special meals and give pleasure through my food to our residents. It’s like
cooking for my family,” Maria tells the OSCAR Care Group.

Maria goes on to praise her team at the Fronditha Care facility, saying they work well together.

“My colleagues have my trust and respect, in turn I guide them towards quality meals and presentation,” Maria says.

“Together we cooperate and as a result, we work very effectively and in a very friendly environment.”
