Excessive saliva/Drooling

Does anyone out there have some advice/solutions/remedies for this frustrating problem? I am seeking help for my dear friend, Newt, who is 85. He is generally very optomistic and postive, but this particular problem is causing him much aggrivation. He's had PD for 7 years. THANKS in advance!!
