Are there any alternatives if elderly people are not comfortable / unwilling to wear them?

They have thicker underpants called Depends that are not as obnoxious as diapers.

I’m not sure which end is incontinent or if the elderly person is male or female.
After my surgery I had experience with urinary incontinence.
One of the devices i used was an incontinence clamp. Yep . It does what you think it would do.
You clamp it on for a couple of hours to stay dry and, when ready, release the clamp and out it comes. You can do this in a public restroom and nobody is the wiser.

I eventually had sling surgery and that fixed it. Whew!
