My wife and I have long-discussed a potential move from the Kansas City area to the Triangle area; namely to be closer to her family and better employment opportunities. (Insert crossed fingers here.) One thing we have wanted to know, however, where would we find handicap-friendly places? By "handicap-friendly" I mean not just "handicap-accessible", but also where the locals seem to be a bit more polite toward disabled people? (My wife is physically disabled; granted people will be people no matter where we wind up, but we'd really like to be in an area where people are more aware of their surroundings. I'd go into details on the overall attitude toward handicapped persons here in the Kansas City area, but let's just say it needs to be drastically improved.)

My wife and I are both in our mid-30s, no children (though that will change eventually), and would really like to be in a community that considers themselves as "handicap-friendly". She works at one of the local hospitals; I've worked in the Information Technology industry for the past ten years, focusing more on the security aspect within the last eighteen months.

Any suggestions?

Feel free to review a lot of my topics concerning my experiences here being in a similar situation at a similar age in this state with a disabled spouse. There are unfortunately many other states that do it better (I hear Indiana does real well), but if you want to be in this region of the country then I'd suggest that you try South Carolina first.
