Whatsapp call with one press

Here's a tricky one

I want to set up an mobile phone for my 91 year old mother so she can contact me on whatsapp. I need to make it as simple as possible.

I will remove all apps from the home screen except whatsapp but she still has to click that and then again click my name. Is there any way it can be set up so that all she has to do is click one icon and it dials my number ?

You can add a Chat Shortcut to the Home Screen for any of the Contacts in WhatsApp. She would have to press that but then follow it by pressing the telephone symbol to make the call.

In WhatsApp long press on the Contact you want to add until it's highlighted and ticked then press the three dots at the top right of the screen. Select Add chat shortcut then another screen will pop up where you can add it manually or automatically to the Home Screen.
