Mentor 3



My name is Hugh Hetherington. I am a retired telecommunications engineer and manager. I have been involved with the CHHA North Shore Branch since 1996. I am also the editor of the branch newsletter “Mountain Ear” and co-facilitator of our monthly workshop “Sound Advice”. I have what is termed a moderate to severe mid to high frequency hearing loss which is attributed to working in a noisy telephone exchange environment in the late 1950s. I have worn hearing aids for the past 16 years. I enjoy keeping up with the latest in hearing aid and assistive technology and sharing this information through my CHHA connections. Since becoming involved in CHHA, I have been fortunate to learn a lot from others with hearing loss through our sound advice workshops and meetings. I would happy to share this knowledge with others. One of my hobbies is involvement with the SS Master Society’s historical steam tugboat which is currently undergoing a restoration process for its 100th anniversary in 2022. I also enjoy walking, photography and listening to music in my spare time. Over the last 40 years I have amassed a large collection of antique hearing aids and am the founder of the largest on-line hearing aid museum at
