Operating system

My parents (who are in their 70s) occasionally need to access Word documents. Not so much that they need an Office 365 subscription. Does Synology Office allow opening Word documents? If so, I was thinking of setting up remote access for them to open documents (if this is possible without needing to first upload to the NAS).
 
LibreOffice was my thought too. Haven't tried it for a few versions, and I hope it's a bit tidier to use now.

Mac comes with Apples Pages, Numbers, and Keynote (available via the Mac App Store). Not really used them but I think they can work either with or import/export MS formats.

On Mac you can usually Quick Look files to see formatted content. The newer MS docx, xlsx, and pptx can be viewed this way.

What you mean by "need access to", is that only to view or to edit too?
