patio handrail


I have a house I'm trying to old person proof. The back door goes to a patio made with brick pavers. I want to add a step and was thinking of building it out of the same material. What steps should I take so its built to last? I want to grout in between so there are no brick edges to trip on. Then I want to add a handrail. Are these custom fabricated? How would I secure it to the ground. I was thinking of removing a few bricks digging a hole and pouring concrete


Thanks in advance -jimmy

Here is a picture of the same kind of pavers. They are dry set. Would I need to pull them up and put concrete under them to build a second layer that is mortared together on top?
