At present, the aging phenomenon in our country is getting worse day by day. The situation in Shenyang is not optimistic either. According to the latest report from Shenyang Statistical Bureau, by November 2016, the total population of permanent residents in Shenyang had reached 7.314 million. Among them, the number of registered permanent residents over the age of 60 reached 1.35 million, accounting for 23.7%, increasing from 15.3% in 2011. Compared with the increasing aged population, the aged care service industry in our country is deficient. Simply increasing the number of beds is not reasonable. It not only does not improve the seniors’ life quality, but can also result in the waste of resources for the aged, resulting in the simultaneous occurrence of "hard to find one bed in elderly care institutions" and empty beds in those institutions. Therefore, in order to improve the aging care system and develop the aged care service industry, we must earnestly understand the seniors’ life demands and provide the aged services that truly meet the needs of the aged based on the market conditions. Therefore, we hope to investigate the status quo of aging service demands in Shenyang and find out the characteristics and internal differences of aging service needs in Shenyang and the factors that affect the differences in demand so as to provide new information for the development of aging care services in Shenyang.
