Background In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospice moved to digital approaches. Whilst tele-rehabilitation has shown benefits for various chronic health conditions (Bhatt, Patel, Anderson, et al., 2019;Zanaboni, Hoaas, Lien, et al., 2017;Hwang, Bruning, Morris, et al., 2017), there is a gap in the literature on telehealth interventions for palliative rehabilitation. Aim To evaluate digital delivery of a palliative rehabilitation programme and obtain perceptions of users and staff. Methods All members of the Fatigue and Breathlessness (FAB) follow-on group (n=19) were invited to complete a questionnaire on the experience of transitioning to Zoom sessions. Descriptive statistics were produced using the statistical software package, Stata (Version 15;StataCorp, 2017). Qualitative data were analysed using an inductive thematic analysis framework (Braun & Clarke, 2006). Three members of the rehabilitation team were interviewed about encountered benefits and challenges. Results Thirteen members completed the questionnaire (68%) and all were positive about the transformed sessions. Eight respondents (62%) felt that the Zoom sessions were 'no different' or 'better' than in-person sessions. No adverse events were reported. Themes from open-ended comments included patient-level effects such as maintained exercise and social contact when in isolation and removed travel requirements. At the service level, there was improved access but technological challenges. Most respondents (9, 69%) suggested keeping the option of Zoom for flexibility and 46% (6) wanted both staff-led and self-led elements. The rehabilitation team felt their rapid response and team working enabled efficient transition to Zoom. This included risk assessments, particularly for those living alone. With help, users quickly learned and the virtual delivery provided opportunities to try new activities. At times, staff found the 'silent audience' challenging. The rehabilitation team felt the approach may only work with groups with existing rapport. Conclusions The hospice rehabilitation team now provide concurrent sessions at home via Zoom and in the hospice. These access options provide choice, appear to be acceptable and offer flexibility around changing condition status and personal factors.

The authors apologize for a typing error that occurred in the September 2020 article that changes the meaning of a sentence. Correction: Page 921, right column, 2nd paragraph, line 8, change «match» to «watch» so it reads, «Primary care providers should watch for frailty development due to physical inactivity during the COVID-19 pandemic (47).» In addition, the author listed as “C. Won Won” wishes to be known as “C.W. Won.” © 2020, The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging.

The SARS-CoV-2 infection is particularly associated with negative outcomes (i.e., serious disease, death) in frail older people, independently of where they live. Furthermore, the period of pandemic (with its lockdowns, social distancing, fragmentation of care…) has significantly changed the environment in which older people live. It is likely that, when the pandemic will be over, an acceleration of the aging process will be observed for many persons, independently of whether they have been infected or not by the SARS-CoV-2. The World report on ageing and health, published by the World Health Organization, proposes the concept of intrinsic capacity (i.e., the composite of all the physical and mental capacities of the individual) as central for healthy ageing. The routine assessment of biological age through constructs such as intrinsic capacity might have allowed a better understanding of the functional trajectories and vulnerabilities of the individual, even during a catastrophic event as the one we are currently living. In the present article, we describe how COVID-19 has affected the persons' intrinsic capacity, and how the wide adoption of the intrinsic capacity model may support the modernization of our systems and bring them closer to the individual.
