Kindle Fire or iPod Touch for my disabled dad?

My father has ALS (Lou Gherig's disease) and has basically no motor skills. But he loves reading books and magazines.
I don't know much about the Kindle Fire, but I am considering it because he has previously used a Kindle and is familiar with the product. Considerations:
1) Audible books. The best way for him to access books is through Audible. How do these products stack up in terms of ease of use?
2) General ease of use. The people operating these will be my Mom and my dad's nurses, none of whom are particularly technologically knowledgeable. I'm confident in the ease of use of the iPod, but how is the Fire?
The products are both at the same price point. What do you think?
