Abstract

Population aging has emerged as one of China's major concerns due to the country's ongoing economic development and population increase. In order to predict the future growth of China's aged service industry and to suggest appropriate change-management techniques, this article examines the existing status of China's aging population. First, in this essay, the current situation with China's aging population is examined, including the sharp rise in the proportion of the old and the progression of aging., and the existence of urban-rural aging differences. Secondly, this paper analyzes the causes of population aging and the combined effects of various factors such as aging family knots. Then, the paper discusses how to improve China's elderly service industry and proposes corresponding policy recommendations and changes in wording. Finally, the paper points out that to meet the challenges posed by population aging, and to ensure the senior population's health, longevity, and happiness, a sound aged service system must be established. and aggressively pursue the education and training of elderly service employees to enhance their knowledge, abilities, and employment possibilities for the elderly population's involvement and fulfillment. Aside from that, the government should strengthen cooperation with enterprises and social organizations to improve the elderly service industry.
