Mood swings could be caused by a medication he's taking, low blood-sugar or other heatlh issues, or the beginning of dementia. He needs to see a doctor for a physical. If everything else checks out well, he should see a neurolgist or other specialist to test for dementia.

Good luck. It's hard and sad to cope with this.
