Every dog I've owned has had problems holding it when they get older. It's very common.

Otherwise, crate the dog while you are gone or get a belly band, can't think of anything else.

Do you keep his water down all day.....or put it up when you leave?

Vet check for urinary issues.

Also, if noises spook him....try keeping a TV on, maybe on Animal planet so that will keep him distracted and the outside noises will be less obvious.

Or set your computer up, load a program so that you can watch him....maybe you can figure out what is triggering him.

Yes definitely see if you can bring a urine sample to the vet in case it's a urinary tract infection,that could be your solution right there. I agree also with the above ideas of the tv being left on and possibly seeing when he does it.

Though first,the urine sample is important in case he has an infection,which brings with it urinary frequency.
Also if you're gone long maybe you could try a dog walker at 11 or noon, or whatever the time would be.

And I do resemble that remark, LOL.

It was like a real downward slope after I hit my late 40s. Well, the good news is, I get more steps in this way, LOL!
