Dishevelled dad

My dad will be 80 very soon, he's dong well but his sight is not great and recently he's become very dishevelled
He's always been incredibly well turned out, think suit and tie on the beach type of thing but recently his clothes are grubbier and grubbier, his hair needs cutting and he often needs a shave.
How do I sensitively discuss this with him? We are not terrifically close and do not have any kind of honest relationship, added to which his hearing is terrible and I don't want to have to shout it at him.
I don't want to hurt his feelings but he really is looking uncharacteristically scruffy.

Has his general health changed ? Lost weight ? Might be worth a GP checkup
