I think this tree is dying and I don't know how to save it.

I inherited this tree from my mother-in-law. She kept it alive in this tiny pot for 20 years, and within a few months at my house, it's looking really rough. It's dropping leaves like crazy, and it just looks really yellow. I don't know if it's too cold or too dark where it is (by a shaded bay window) or if I've given it too much or not enough water (I haven't watered it consistently. Sometimes I give it too much and sometimes I forget about it for a few weeks, though I'm much better about watering now.) Or is this just what all trees do in the fall, even indoor trees? Can anyone help? What kind of tree is this, and how does one help it when it's looking this bad?
