Good morning routine that start AUTOMATICALLY at 8 AM for elderly people ?

Does anybody know a simple way to play the good morning routine AUTOMATICALLY at 8 AM ? (with no interaction from the elderly person)  

 

The Google "good morning" routine with personal calendar and birthdays is very good for elderly people and I want it to start AUTOMATICALLY at 8 AM for my mum on her Google Home Mini.
I have already created the routine, but since the Google Home app considers the routine personal then it will not start AUTOMATICALLY at 8 AM (only by voice command or by stopping an alarm, which all doesn't work for mum who now prefer MINIMAL interaction with technology).

I have found a workaround (sort of): I recorded my mum's voice saying "Hi Google, good morning", uploaded it to Youtube-Music (free account) and then played the recording AUTOMATICALLY at 8 AM with a routine on a secondary Google Nest Hub 7". It all works fine and mum's primary Google Home Mini picks up the command and play the good morning routine at 8 AM with her calendar and birthday reminders. (So mum now have two Google devices standing next to each other talking to each other).


UPDATE:

In the end it turned out that scheduling an automatic good morning routine at 8AM worked just fine once I did a factory reset of the Google Home Mini unit. It all works well now with a single Google Home Mini ...
