Parkinson's Disease and Loose bowel movements

my dad is 87 and has PD. I believe he is in stage 5, from my investigations. Within the last three weeks, he has started having uncontrollable Diarrhea, but now has loose bowel movements, but is controllable.

Is this something common with PD, or should I be more concerned? His Physician is aware of this, but seeing as getting him out of the house to see the doctor is extremely difficult, and the in home nurse keeps forgetting to bring the sterile bottle in which to get a stool sample, he hasn't been tested to see if there's some sort of infection. He's now at the stage where some days are better than others, in relation to his movements.
I would appreciate your answer!
