Here are a couple of previous similar questions addressing that which might help on the grab bar issue - I recommend a Ceramic Tile contractor do the install for a job less likely to damage the tile - normal method is to use rubber sleeve inserts on the mounting screws so they do not tend to crack the tile, and a rubber mounting gasket (usually supplied with the bar) to even out the pressure on the tile from the bar base -

However - since you say you also need new entry accessibility work (and likely stair accessibility work too if house has stairs), then a General Contractor who advertises handicapped accessibility work would probably be your best bet. Also, if having that type of work done, consider accessible cabinet pulls for higher cabinets, sink/basin accessibility, emergency egress accessibility features, lever-type accessible door handles, etc at the same time if needed.

That is not a separate Angies List category - but if you google for ADA or Accessibility contractors in your area, you can then cross-check on Angies List by company name for any ratings or reviews on them.

Some locales (especially larger cities) also have listings of ADA/Accessibility contractors - sometimes maintained by a city Building or health department, sometimes by a handicapped non-profit organization.
