I need recommendations of handyman services near Greenville, IL. My father-in-law nees some railings installed in his bathroom as well as near two sets of stairs outside. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Bond County Health Department seems to have an Occupational Therapy service, don't know if you're already familiar with these people? Their contact details are online.

Do make sure the person understands what s/he's doing. Grab rails that can't bear full weight or aren't securely fixed are more dangerous than none; and it will also be worth putting some thought into the design of the stairs so that they're safe and comfortable for your FIL to use - they too need to have proper handrails, easily visible edges and good lighting.

If there's an Occupational Therapy service near you, they will probably be able to recommend suitable installers.

lindakg, sorry no one has answered in the past few hours. Apparently there aren't any caregivers on-line who are from Greenville, Illinois area.

Call your local County or City Council on Aging. Maybe they have a list of people who do that type of work.

When my parents needed railings or grab bars for their bathroom. They called their regular plumber who knew actually what they needed.
