My partner has advancing Alzeimer's and she is doubly incontinent, she now has increasing tendency to take off her pads and wet/soil the bed, compounding this she'll wee/poo on the bedroom carpet. Any suggestions, thanks?

Do you have contact with anyone who works at a care facility or a home care agency? If not, you might just call and ask for help with this as it sounds like it would be a huge problem. They might have some ideas.

Is there anyway you can remove the carpet and replace with a different kind of flooring? Expensive, I know.

You can buy a full-sized mattress cover (they are plastic or similar). I didn't like the sound of plastic, so I put that under a full size mattress cover, which is washable. Once you have sheets on the bed, you can also put a large sized pad on her side of the bed. They sell washable ones, as well as disposable ones. As for the carpet, I don't know, maybe just vacuum with Carpet Fresh/baking soda every day, even if she doesn't have an accident. Good luck
