Can I add a cordless phone?

My elderly parents have a corded landline, so that doesn’t need a power socket.  They can’t grasp using a mobile so I want to add a cordless option, something they can move around the house with, without having to go to the corded location every time to answer the phone.

So I would need to locate the cordless phone near a convenient power socket.  Can I just get a twin phone line connector and run a new extra phone cable to that location?  Is it really that easy?  Thanks for any advice.
