Hi Smriti,
Thanks for writing in.
As per your description, it seems that your grandfather could have suffered from a stroke or an acute disorder in the blood level of certain substances. It can also be due to Alzeheimer's and several other conditions. This would be leading to the seizures. The outlook can be decided only once we identify the cause. At this stage, your grandfather needs a complete workup.
Hope this helps
