Disable Guide & Other Adv. Function Buttons on 54 Remote

I have a an elderly relative that gets confused when using the 54 remote.

Is there any way to disable pretty much all buttons except for channel up and down, volume up and down and pause and play?

I've found super simplified universal remotes but none have the pause/play button which is used frequently by my relative.

No, but you can order what’s called a Basic Remote from Dish

Thanks! I'm the impatient sort and decided to try a version of a DIY solution I found online.
