This paper will focus on the provision of community aged care services via ‘direct payments’ and ‘social enterprise’. These are two solutions that were not fully considered by the Productivity Commission as a way to make the provision of community aged care more sustainable in Australia. The empowerment component of social enterprise activities and ‘direct payments’ have the potential to generate improvements in the community aged care system.
