A main character is shown developing Alzheimer's around season 5, and in season 6 the other characters navigate the illness. The person with the disease is treated with respect and dignity the entire time. As someone whose loved one died of this disease, I really appreciated the compassionate way they depicted it.

An older character exhibits memory loss and strange behaviors. It is not caused by Alzheimer's but the real cause isn't revealed for several seasons. His symotoms are very redolent of dementia.
