At the beginning of 2023, the news of delayed retirement sparked heated discussions. The main reason behind this is that the degree of aging in China has further aggravated, making the construction of the elderly service system an important task for social development. In this context, this paper takes Zibo City, Shandong Province, where the aging phenomenon is prominent, as the research area. The current situation and problems in the construction and development of the social service system for the elderly in the city were compared through on-site investigation and literature review, corresponding countermeasures and suggestions are put forward in response to the aging population to build an aging society where wealth and prosperity are shared.
