Hello, Your grandfather seems to be having dementia. This is a problem which comes in old age where people lose their memory, thinking ability,language,sense of direction etc. They can have a lot of behavioural problems . Please consult a psychiatrist to assess him in detail and suggest treatment for any behavioural issues.
