Abstract: As the population ages, the number of people in our communities suffering with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) will increase. Individuals with MCI may benefit from e-health interventions for exercise promotion, but there is a need for such an e-health program that fits the needs of older adults with MCI. The objective of this study was to evaluate the implementation, actual use and user-experience of a home-based exercise program developed for older adults with MCI. Questionnaires were filled in about the implementation strategy, actual use and user-experience (usefulness, usability and satisfaction). Fifty-seven older adults and eight formal caregivers participated in the study. Mean duration of the sessions was 18 minutes (+/-15). The user-experience of the older adults was higher than that of the formal caregivers. Formal caregivers mainly offered the program at the home care organization, but some older adults indicated that they were willing to try it at home. In conclusion, the online exercise program is feasible and potentially beneficial for older adults when taking into account the e-health literacy of older adults and attitude towards e-health of formal caregivers in the implementation strategy.
