(flat-screen) TV recommendations

Looking for TV set recommendation for my elderly mum with dementia. She is 83, loves to watch TV (BBC/ITV only) but is easily confused by technology. There is no wi-fi in the house, so a simple model would be best! Although wall-mountable and flat-screen would be excellent due to space restrictions. Thanks so much.

I found my mother needed an obvious on/off switch. She cannot understand a remote and can't change channel so it stays on BBC1. Fine with her.

Thanks! Sounds similar...

I got DF exactly the same TV as I have at home.
So
When he can’t work it I can talk him through it with my remote control at home, or send pics of my tv/remote.
Even though he’s very near, it saves me having to pop round every time he turns the tv on and can’t find the right channel
