Assistive Devices

Compared to some of the topics I've been reading this is a small concern but I sure would appreciate some ideas.  My parents, 92 and 90, are still living alone in their home.  We'd like to keep it that way but we're finding that they need help with the little things of life.  For instance, the TV/Cable remote control is beyond them now.  Is there a simple remote on the market that only would have an ON/OFF, Volume and Channel Buttons?  What are your thought on the Jitterbug phone?  Is it as easy as advertised?  Dad's had several strokes and limited vision, Mom has some dementia.  Me, I'm retired and back to work full time, also raising 2 grandsons.  I can't run to their house every time they want to change the channel.  Ideas for other devices to make their lives (and mine) would be welcome
