In brief: Dementia

As one ages, often in the elderly there are mini strokes that begin to destroy small parts of the brain.
This is not the standard form of alzheimer's or dementia; but it is a commonly called form of dementia. You may want to take this person to their doctor for mental health and neurological evaluation.
