Continuos Hiccups

Hello, My father for the last few days is getting continuous hiccups and we have tried homeopathy treatment as well but in vain. He had this problem a month earlier and it continued for almost 10 days and then stopped. He was prescribed medicines like Pan D, Sucrol syrup and other Vitamin capsules but this actually didn't work and the hiccups one day stopped itself. It has again started this week and no home remedies seems to stop it. I am very worried as I am not sure what to do. He had a cerebral attack 5 years back and taking him to a doctor is very difficult since his right side is paralyzed. Please suggest me as to what I should do in order to solve this problem for my father. Thanks
