Setting up video calling

Hi- Id like to try a video calling device with my mum. But she needs a really really simple screen as she can hardly cope with her TV remote or phone. Has anyone set up a Facebook Mini Portal or Amazon Echo ? Can you make them really simple? Any ideas welcome, thanks

We have an echo show
you only have to press the accept button
you see a picture of the caller.
you can also say ‘ Alexa set a reminder at 11.30 to get ready to
go out to lunch’
(perhaps not at the moment)
making calls will be beyond most dementia users.
