Thank you for posting your query.
Your father could be having partial sensory seizures, where patients have similar symptoms. This is due to his old bleeding stroke
in the brain, called as post-stroke epilepsy
He may require an imaging such as MRI
brain and EEG test.
Following which, he should be started on anti-epileptic medications.
There is no need to worry at this stage.
I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
