Bought this for my 82 year old mom who had trouble in the assisted living facility working the complicated remote with the buttons she couldn't see. That was a cable remote. This took seconds to program and works perfectly for what it is designed for. HIghly recommended

Just what I needed for my 90 year old mother who is visually impaired. Fewer buttons to fumble with makes it great.

My mother in law is always having trouble with her remote even after many attempts to show her the only buttons "she needs to mess with". This solved the problem. This is perfect for anyone who has trouble with those megabutton remotes.

Easy for a senior to use.

Easy to use and set up. I didn’t have any problem.

Great for Seniors

Purchased for my parents who had continual issues by accidentally changing the input on the tv with their existing remote. Very easy to set up and use.

Great for seniors!!

Was extremely easy to set up and perfect for my dad to use at 87!

Great for Seniors

I bought this for my father, who is in a nursing home. I like it because it was easy to program. He loves it because the buttons light up and it only has the buttons that he uses.

Great for seniors

I bought this for my 101 year old grandma because she was having trouble seeing her TV remote and it was perfect. I set it up with a custom program, so it was easier for her to use. I programmed the power, mute and volume up and down normally, so they just worked as usual. I set the channel up as the favorites button and the channel down was programmed as the last or back button. This simplified remote had everything my grandma needed and she was able to enjoy TV again.

Great for seniors!!

This remote is a Godsend for those who are unable to use the normal remotes with smaller buttons. This one is easy to program and use. I really like the wrist band allowing the user to keep the remote handy while moving around.

Fewer buttons, great for seniors and low vision

Just what I needed for my 90 year old mother who is visually impaired. Fewer buttons to fumble with makes it great.

Great for seniors

My elderly neighbor had lost the remote to her Sharp TV. This remote was perfect for her; large buttons with very few extraneous options. Following the instructions on the Jasco site I was able to get this working in a few minutes . And at a good price. Recommended.

Good choice for a senior citizen.

I bought this for my elderly mother-in-law, who has trouble navigating with the small-button, complicated standard cable remote. The buttons are much larger than on a typical cable remote, and since all she needs is to be able to access a half-dozen channels in the facility where she lives, this remote does the job nicely. Numeric buttons are big and have good tactile feel; the rocker buttons for volume and channel up/down also have a positive feel. She uses the last-channel feature frequently for switching back and forth between two channels, and this remote has that feature as well.

I need something for a senior citizen with an old ass (i.e. non-flat screen) TV. Will this work?

Will work on practically television regardless of age of tv

I need something for a senior citizen with an older (i.e. non-flat screen) TV. Would this work?

Most assurely.....large numbers as well.....

Seniors need this

For seniors, the silver color is much better than black. The size of the remote itself and the actual buttons are also just what seniors need.…

Great for Seniors

How big are the keys?

Big enough for a visually impaired senior

I have a Sony KDL-32BX300. Will this controller work for this TV?

I can't answer that 100% for sure. I can't see why the Sony remote would be incompatible with any of there devices. I by these for our company all time to handle all the TV 's we own, and works well with the seniors. The Amazon price paid is good. Hope this helped you out!

Great for Seniors

Easiest remote for Senior citizens

The BEST remote for elderly people! My Dad had a stroke so complex remotes just don't work for him anymore. Took 15 mins to program but works awesome! Highly recommend

Great for seniors!

I bought this remote for my mother who was constantly pushing the wrong buttons on her remote and "breaking" her TV. (We did the tape thing but that didn't work) This remote is great, all the buttons she needs are large and clearly marked and the ones she shouldn't touch are hidden under the slider. I wish I had found this a few years ago. Well worth it!

Does this allow remote allow you program sourses so you can switch from the calbe to a dvd player?

No. It's designed to operate the TV and one source box, either a cable box or satellite, etc. The simplicity is what keeps it easy for seniors.

Does it work with Dish Network Satellite receiver?

Hi Joanne, I took a look at the manual and it say that it supports TV & Cable, Satellite, and Digital TV. There are codes for 16 different models of Dish Network receivers. We don't use Dish Network so are unable to comment on that particular device, but it works great for a Motorola digital cable box. We purchased the remote for a senior citizen that was getting confused by all the extra button on the remote that was provided with the receiver. You can hide the extra buttons under a sliding door, we also placed a small piece of clear plastic tape over the door so that it would not be opened by accident. Hope this helps.

Such a lifesaver for seniors!

Thank you for this remote. It has been a lifesaver for my father-in-law. Good quality item and it was so easy to program to the tv. It practically did it out of the box.

Perfect for seniors

Bought this for my father who has some dementia issues. With the uverse remote, he would end up hitting random buttons which would take him to the menu, causing frustration. This solved the problem nicely and I was able to program his favorite channels in so that he can easily access them without having to remember the number.

Ideal for seniors

I bought this for my 93-year-old father-in-law who had difficulty with a multifunction remote. This accomplishes his goals of adjusting the volume and channel surfing. It was easy to set up and cake ready to control his television. I did have to enter the code for his cable box but that went smoothly.

Perfect for Seniors

This product has rmade my mother's life less complicated. She can watch TV without being confused about the remote(s). What I LOVE about this product is it can be programmed to turn off the cable and TV at the same time, or to turn off the TV only. It is perfectly designed. I rarely say thank you to a manufacturer, but to this company, I say "thank you"!

Great for seniors!

This remote has solved all the problems my mother had with remotes! This is so basic and the buttons are big and easy to use. I really love the fact that it turns on the TV and cable box with one remote and the volume is controlled and the channels controlled with only one remote too. This is the best! I will recommend this to everyone!

Does it work with smart tv?

I don’t know because we don’t have a smart tv but it surely works well with our regular tv - practically no set up. Like the large numbers for our senior eyes. We havethree of them..

works great for seniors

works great

Even a senior can do this!

Easy to use and easy to program. My elderly relative could do it!

Three Stars

Well designed for senior use for TV - BUT IT DOESN'T control cable boxes.

Do the senior friendly remotes work dor most cables subscribers?

It will not control a cable box but if you use your current TV remote to change channels and volume of the TV, this one will do that.

AWESOME!

…I had bought this and another senior remote, and this one was way bigger and easier to hold and use.... I've bought a few recent no-name cheap products, and the battery door was impossible to open, including another senior remote.…
