Define lose. for example if he puts it in a drawer and forgets where he put it, I don't know if there's some beeper or device that would allow him to find it by pressing a button (think of what you do when you lose your landline phone)
However, if he loses it in the dark there is a remote control cover that glows in the dark called Button Blocker.
I don't know if that answers your question, but I hope it helps!

Try putting a piece of sticky back Velcro on the back of the remote and the arm of his chair, just where he would naturally set it down. Right handed right arm left handed left arm If Dad is dressed get a case that attaches to his pants or belt and maybe he will put his glasses in that.

For the remote control, how about getting one of those HUGE ones for people with sight issues. At least it'd be a lot easier to spot it when he does misplace it. As for glasses, I have a pair of readers in almost every single room in the house. Got tired of having to look for them. ha

Another idea would be to create a box or some kind of container and mark it clearly with "TV Remote/Glasses Go Here" in big bright letters. Put it near where your dad sits. Then keep reinforcing to your dad that that he can leave them there. My mom was having stuff all over and I finally got a plastic container from the Dollar Store that sits on the couch right next to her chair. I put her address book, writing tablet, container for pens, stamps, etc. in it. Everything is within reach and easy to see from her chair. She uses it pretty well. Still has a mess, but it's easier to clean up than before having the easy-to-reach container.

They sell remote control caddies to put over the arm rest of a chair. They have several pockets to keep other stuff like glasses and TVGuide, too. You'll probably have to order them on-line or from a catalogue.

We also go through the lost glasses - my hubby is stubborn and will not use the lanyard. I don't have a good solution, just try to keep track of them as best I can. It would be great if they simply left them on!!
As to the remote -'if you have a cable co. they might supply you with a second one for a fee of course - but then again you'd have two to keep up with. Nothing is easy is it.

oh wait a minute, you mean the rope attachment that you hook to the glasses right? Already bought 4 of them, he keeps taking them off. This is a tough one!

There are lanyards for glasses. If you get that, he can wear them around his neck and never lose them again (hopefully). As far as the remote goes, try tying a long string to it like a banker's pen and see if that works? Good luck!!
