lamthornhill, sounds like your Aunt has her hands full with her husband, and probably is exhausted from being his caregiver when he first started with his dementia. It is not uncommon for that caregiver to shut out everyone to get a break.

You need to remember everything is now new for your Aunt and for your Uncle. Usually when one is placed in a new residence such as a nursing home, it is common for no one to make contact with that person for 2 weeks. They need to settle in, get use to the place, get use to the Staff, etc.

I know you are worried, but give your Aunt some breathing room. Hopefully she will eventually contact your cousin or your Mom with some news.

This lady is my cousin's step mom, and it will not contact anyone about my uncle. She is supposed to be in contact with either my cousin, my mom, or my other uncle. She is refusing to answer any calls or texts from either my cousin or my mom. My mom is really worried about her brother.

It sounds as though your uncle is seriously ill; it sounds as though something occurred ( a fall, severe behavioral issues) that caused his removal to a hospital.

I think the best course of action is to rely upon your cousin to be in contact with him mom to offer support and help during what is certainly a trying time. She may be overwhelmed with what is going on.
