Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

I am sorry to hear about his problems.

Having blood in urine for a 96 years old man, should be further checked by doctor.

These symptoms can occur due to various reasons. The most common causes are -
-Kidney and bladder stones,
-Urinary tract infection,

-Prostate gland enlargement,
-STD.

The most common cause for such symptoms is Bladder infection.
He need to undergo few tests for diagnosis-
-Urine test,
-X-ray pelvis,
-Ultrasound of lower abdomen.
For the time, he can take plenty of fluids and drink Cranberry juice.
He should see doctor urgently for checkup and treatment. He will be advised medications, after tests and clinical evaluation.

Hope this helped
