Hi Vijay,
Here is the sample code, that get old and new values of account object and display it in a account detail page.
whenever the account record is updated, this component shows the old values and the updated new  values for name , phone and email field

    <lightning-card title="Account Update">

    <div class="slds-grid slds-gutters slds-align_absolute-center">
        <div class="slds-col ">
            <template if:true={oldAccount}>
            <h1>Old Name  :   {oldAccountName}</h1>
            <h1>Old Phone :   {oldAccountPhone}</h1>
            <h1>Old Email :   {oldAccountEmail}</h1>
        <div class="slds-col">
            <template if:true={newAccount}>
                <h1>New Name  :   {newAccountName}</h1>
                <h1>New Phone :   {newAccountPhone}</h1>
                <h1>New Email :   {newAccountEmail}</h1>

import { LightningElement, api, wire, track } from 'lwc';
import { getRecord } from 'lightning/uiRecordApi';
export default class AccountLwc extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;
    @track newAccount;
    @track oldAccount;
    @track account = [];

    @wire(getRecord, { recordId: '$recordId', fields: [ 'Account.Name', 'Account.Phone' , 'Account.Email__c'] })
    getaccountRecord({ data, error }) {
        console.log('accountRecord => ', data, error);
        if (data) {
        } else if (error) {
            console.error('ERROR => ', JSON.stringify(error)); // handle error properly

    processRelatedObjects(data) {
        console.log('processRelatedObjects for => ', JSON.stringify(data));
        // further processing like refreshApex or calling another wire service
        if(this.account.length >2) {
        this.oldAccount = this.account[0] ? this.account[0] : {};
        this.name = this.oldAccount.fields.Name.value;
        if(this.account[1]) {
            this.newAccount = this.account[1];
            this.newName = this.newAccount.fields.Name.value;
    get oldAccountName(){
        return this.oldAccount.fields.Name.value ? this.oldAccount.fields.Name.value : '';
    get newAccountName(){
        return this.newAccount.fields.Name.value ? this.newAccount.fields.Name.value : '';
    get oldAccountPhone(){
        return this.oldAccount.fields.Phone.value ? this.oldAccount.fields.Phone.value : '';
    get oldAccountEmail(){
        return this.oldAccount.fields.Email__c.value ? this.oldAccount.fields.Email__c.value : '';
    get newAccountPhone(){
        return this.newAccount.fields.Phone.value ? this.newAccount.fields.Phone.value : '';
    get newAccountEmail(){
        return this.newAccount.fields.Email__c.value ? 
         this.newAccount.fields.Email__c.value : '';


Remember, the old values are stored temporarily in JS class, and it will be removed if the component is rerender on the page.
To have permanent old values, try creating a child object that has record with old values.
