need advice on building handrail down steps in garage

I need to build a handrail to help my mother get up and down the steps in our garage. We have two steps, plus you step up once to get to the house level. The steps are wood, and the step tread extends out over the base of the step by about 1".

Is there a simple way to construct a sturdy handrail that is attached to the wall and to the floor, or do I need to attach it to the steps somehow?
