Experimental: Nutrition Intervention
The intervention group will receive a full nutrition assessment and a nutrition intervention.
Behavioral: Nutrition Intervention
Participants randomized to the intervention group receive a comprehensive nutrition assessment and a in-home intervention with follow-up calls from a Registered Dietician who will addresses their risk for becoming under-nourished at multiple levels.
No Intervention: Control
This group will receive the nutrition assessment but no intervention from a Registered Dietician. If participant appears to be in danger due to BMI or Caloric intake status, their primary care physician will be notified.
- Caloric Intake [ Time Frame: 2 and 8 months post-baseline ]At each of the data collection points, (3) 24 hour Food Recalls will be collected and measured against each other. Participants who receive the intervention are hypothesized to increase their caloric intake post-baseline.
- Health services utilization, specifically hospitalization and re-hospitalization [ Time Frame: 6 months from follow-up assessment ]Patients receiving the intervention are hypothesized to have lower rates of hospitalization and re-hospitalization due to increased caloric intake and a reduced rate of physical decline.
