Bowel problem

My grandfather is 70 years old. He can' t control is bowel and as a result he poohs everywhere in his sleep mostly. He' s also an alcoholic.

What causes that and how can he get help

He may need to see a doctor for a physical examination - they will have to look whether he has a blocked bowel with diarrhoea running past, or if he has a problem with the sphincter of the anus.
