Need recommendations on adventure games for elderly people.

To be more specific, an elderly woman in her 80s who is almost deaf and suffers from hearing impairment. Because of that, a simple interface that is easy to read and understand is an absolute necessity. Less important, but preferable, would be a distinct lack of vulgarity and violence. Her favorite genre is mystery, such as Monk and Murder She Wrote (both the shows and the books), but I'm not picky about that as long as the other requirements are met. Windows platform, but I'm thinking about buying her a Kindle Fire.
On a side note, I'm a bit surprised that no video game developer seems to be interested in developing games specifically for the elderly, especially since those games could still be played by younger people.
