Control ROKU TV remotely for mom with dementia

My Mom has a ROKU TV and dementia. When her caregiver is off. She will call me to help with her remote. This is a 45 to 90 minute phone call. Shen can not find the remote and/or the correct buttons. I am on the same ISP but a different Wifi. Her phone will control her TV.

Is there a universal remote or a way to put a show on her TV. Even though I an a block away?

Is there a device or a port forwarding or VPN setup that will let me control the TV remotely?

Also I have amazon Aleza I have not been able to control Roku well from Alexa, but if this has gotten better this may be a solution?

Also can I setup up shortcuts on the IPhone to start her shows?

No matter what I will be on the phone with her to verify that the app I start launches.
