How much of Brunswick County is now retired people? I only recommended the one in Wilmington because the OP said she wanted to live around younger people. I still think the social life for a 30-something is best in Wilmington.

However, if the OP needs to expand her search beyond Wilmington, there are probably a dozen hospitals within half-hour of the coast. One can find interesting places to live while working at any of them.

True....but one could live in Wilmington (or Leland) and work at either of those two facilities...that was my point. Shoot, I know folks that are living in Ogden and commuting to Jacksonville...so Wilmington to Southport is not a stretch...certainly not Bolivia.

Hi, We are looking in the Wilmington area as a pre-retirement move. Our family is unique in that we have an adult special needs child and two kids still in Middle /High school. So, a good school district is top on the list. We will need to be in an area that is helpful to adults with special needs. We would like to be close to intercoastal access. We will be looking for a Mid/large house under $525,000. Any suggestions for the best area

Any of the upscale neighborhoods that feed Hoggard High School and Grise Middle School would be fine for the younger kids.

Without knowing what your special needs adult child needs, it is hard to be helpful. For example, does he/she needs a sheltered workshop, bus transportation, special therapies, etc. I'd suggest contacting the local advocacy organization or the Disability Resource Center: http://www.drc-cil.org/youth-2.html

For New Hanover County programs start here: http://dma.ncdhhs.gov/providers/prog...isabled-adults

Yeah, your price range is good for being in some nice neighborhoods in Wilmington. Maybe look in the Masonboro Forest neighborhood.
