Controlling mental behaviour of 76year old stroke patient

My father is 76 years old and he got stroke 45 days back. Within a week, he started eating. And now his left palm started giving good shakehands. He is walking well. Currently can spell only 2 syllables. Only problem is with mind. Initially to stop irritation, we gave him quitpin tablets (25mg). Now we stopped it as he is angry/hitting us after 6 hours of tablet.After stopping he is fine for 2 days. And now, his childishness increased(he used to have after stroke also but his dimness due to quitpine hidden it slightly). For example, he asks Tea and he cant wait till we give him(not hitting his head now which he used to do initially). And he in bathroom, he is sitting only few seconds on western toilet so he is unable to do that and that became a big problem(whole day going to bathroom, sit few seconds come back).  It works for him only if he sits for around 20-30min generally but he is not even sitting few mins and he is not listening us. Other than such things he is mentally fine(he understands everything). What tablet should we give him to suppress this behaviour ? He likes travelling in car(after stroke), so he keeps on asking us to go out and he cant wait for it. When we are eating, he cant even wait for us to complete eating, we have to stop eating and go with him. I feel some medication can help him escape this kind of behaviour.
