Recommendations on a big button cable remote?

Dad turns 97 next month. He's doing pretty well except for some issues with arthritis. I'd like to get him one of those simple TV remotes that just has big buttons for changing the volume, the channel, and power for Christmas (plenty of time, right!) He has a small, white, Comcast xFinity cable box mounted to the wall of his apartment with an HDMI output to his TV. Comcast offers what they call a big button remote, but the pictures on their website show an only slightly less complicated version of what Dad has now. Does anybody have a recommendation for a simple remote that I could pick up at Best Buy or buy using Prime to get it here in time for Xmas?
