Is is laziness or forgetfullness?

I don't know what to do, my 10 year old daughter cannot do anything without me having to ask her to do it. I have always thought it was just laziness but now I am worrying it is more. In the morning, I tell her to get up, I remind her to have breakfast, to brush her hair, get changed, brush her teeth, wash, school bags and everything. If I don't tell her she will not remember to do it. This is every morning not just a one off which I could cope with. Also, she puts things down and completely forgets where she has put them even if she has only just moved them. She could walk past them several times and still would not see the item. Does anyone else have this problem, please let me know as I am at my wits end.
