So Confused...What to use to connect/manage a Samsung Tablet remotely???

Sorry, I'm sure this is very basic, but I'm struggling to even understand which is the right product I even need.

I have a Samsung Tab A tablet that I want to send to my elderly father living 6 hours away in a retirement home. He has minimal computer and no tablet experience.

Because of this, in general but especially under COVID, I need to be able to connect to and manage this device remotely, with ideally, as little or no assistance on his part, from my desktop or laptop.

I was hoping to get this sorted out and sent to him in time for Christmas, but I'm struggling to understand what product configuration I even need and to get anything to work. I love that this is an enterprise toolset, but trying to figure it out with zero experience and not an IT professional is frustrating.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Additional info:

    I have TeamViewer Host loaded on the tablet.

    My laptop appears to be connecting and seeing the tablet, which is good since it is 2 feet away.

    However, all I see on my laptop is a black screen. However, it seems to be interacting as I've "blindly" been able to click into some apps from the homescreen.

    I just don't know where to go from here.
