2 weeks is a long time to be constipated for. Your relative needs to see her doctor or go to er to determine the cause and initiate proper treatment.
The relative might eventually have a bm, but you still don't know what caused the constipation and this warrants a full evaluation of history, physical exam and GI workup possibly.
