It really depends on the location of your rental and the type of improvement you'd make (ramps, support bars, ect.). Adding minimal improvements to make it accessible wouldn't hurt but it doesn't add much value unless your rental is in an area where there is a large demand for it. The value could go the other way if you add too many features that would then impede on having a non-handicap tenant move in. If your rental is located in an area with a high demand of handicap accessible homes, my suggestion would be to do your research to see what handicap accessible features other homes have and what they went for. OR you could advertise that you are willing to make minor improvements to make it accessible if a renter is interested. That way you don't put out the money if you don't have to. But in all reality, it usually does not add too much value as a rental.

Happy holidays!
