Adequate calories: The actual type of diet depends if there are any other medical conditions(diabetes, heart failure, high BP)- but generally the most common thing I encounter is not enough calories through the day. A variety of things may contribute to poor appetite- dry mouth, restricted diet, decreased sense of smell, inactivity, etc. Giving small meals/snacks through the day is important to get enough calories.
