Chinese society is facing a serious aging problem which causes a continuous decline on the economic, social and cultural status of the elderly due to natural and social factors. Basing on the age stratification theory, social alienation theory, activity theory and subculture theory, this paper conducts sociological analysis on the declining social status of the elderly, discusses the necessity of aging education, and offers suggestions to improve their social status from the perspective of aging education.
