Access Roku tv remotely with Roku App??

My Dad lives in a long term care home and is in lock down. He uses a Roku/Sharp Smart TV but is now at a stage that he cannot switch between Netflix and Cable well.  I think the app can be used to change the tv settings so when he turns it on it goes straight to cable and not the home screen. 

My problem is that I can't go in to his room but I can connect to his wifi outside the building. If I do that, can I use the app to change his settings or do we have to change settings directly on his tv first?  Any insight would be helpful.  Thanks

Assuming the staff at the nursing home haven't turned off the ability for wifi devices to talk to each other, as long as you are on the network with the TV you should be able to make that change.
