Since it's an older dog, there could be a medical reason as to why your dog pees and poops in the house. The first thing to do is to take the dog in for a complete checkup and blood work. You may have to retrain your dog also. 30 minutes after eating, take her outside and walk her. Just leaving her outside is not a good thing to do, plus, you won't be able to monitor as to when she pees and poops.
I would think that you express displeasure when your doggie excretes on your rugs. When you are outside with her, you can praise her and give her a skritch.
