Brief Answer:
He needs a full check up.

Detailed Answer:
Hi there, thanks for asking. Since the change in behaviour is after 50 years old, he should be checked for any tumor in the brain and also a type of dementia named frontotemporal dementia. After Alzheimer's disease, it is the most common dementia. A full assessment will clarify what is the reason for this change.
He should also be checked for using any substances if there is any doubt in this regard. Let me know if you have any question.
Best wishes.
