Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In order to support sustainable in-home long-term care, it is essential to monitor mental states of elderly people at home, and to encourage their ability of self-care. However, many challenges exist in practice, including limitations of human interventions, sensor-based monitoring, as well as the daily recording and externalization of mental states. In the previous research, we have proposed Mind Monitoring Service, which aims to monitor mental states and promote self-care of elderly people at home. In the proposed service, a chatbot asks a user specific questions to acquire his/her mental state. Based on the answers, the service then assesses the mental state and sends the feedback. In this research, we develop a new feature of weekly feedback. The feature automatically reviews answers of past one week, and sends advice to improve the current situation. We conduct an experiment to evaluate the effectiveness. Through the experiment, it was confirmed that the weekly feedback encouraged self-care consciousness and increased motivation of subjects.
