Let your son know that sometimes Grandpa can get angry and if Grandpa does anything that scares him he should come and tell you right away.
If you know the "triggers" that might make your Dad angry try to avoid them, keep visits short and at a good time of day for your Dad.
Your first responsibility is to your son and his safety and if your Dad is aware you need to keep stressing this. If at anytime he becomes angry you need to take your son and go. (if possible) Tell your Dad that the behaviour was unacceptable and you will come back again when he is calmer. Then leave.
Tell your son that nothing he did made his Grandpa angry it is the disease he has that makes Grandpa get angry.
